Ben Cockerham & Dave Previ
Elder King (2019)
"Elder King" is an instrumental collaboration between Ben Cockerham and drummer Dave Previ. The eight tracks focus on guitar sonics and timbre and while tonal, minimize melody to create an ocean of texture to overwhelm the listener. The vast majority of the guitar parts were recorded with the Brian May Guitars BMG Special, highlighting its incredible and non-traditional tonal range.
Into A future bright and beautiful (2019)
The fifth studio album from Sublunar minds showcases what the band is known for: energetic, catchy songs with strong grooves and a hint of melancholy. This album features the live staples “Up Up Up” and “This Other Eden” as well as extensive Queen-esque guitar choir arrangements.
Lit Again In Our Time (2018)
The fourth studio album from Sublunar Minds is a left-field concept piece, written for the 100th anniversary of the armistice ending WWI, and released on that day. The music is comprised of dense horn arrangements and aggressive grooves with melodic material based on re-harmonizations of classic Black Sabbath riffs. The snarling sprechstimme vocals draw from the classic WWI war poets and paint an abstract bleak landscape.
Savoy In Color
Hear Today then (2015)
