Mog Rocket is a progressive rock band based in Atlanta GA. Intertwining heavy riffs and dark overtones with softer melodic interludes, this trio provides a vast and dynamic canvas to paint its vision. Drawing influence from their predecessors of the early 1970’s, Mog Rocket fuses classic sounds with near algebraic compositions in a style that is entirely their own. Sharing the stage with regional, like-minded acts The Seventh Ring of Saturn, The Humboldt Trio, and Mata Luna, their shows provide a mixture of well-orchestrated rock and crunching improvisation.
Some major influences include King Crimson, Mars Volta, Pink Floyd, The Raconteurs, Yes, Frank Zappa, and Jeff Beck to name a few. Melodic Revolution Records dubs the music, “Excellent prog,” and David Ragsdale of Kansas calls the music “. . . very disturbing.” Having just completed their debut CD “Tooth and Nail” Mog Rocket are spending their downtime altering the space/time continuum.
