Incolors are a young music project that blurs the lines between sophisticated progressive metal and contemporary popular music. With „prop metal“ Incolors bring color to what used to be painted in just black and white.
That sounds at first like a paintbox. But Incolors sounds more than anything like variety. Because new colors are created when familiar ones are mixed.
The color of Incolors is “prop metal”. Painted with a skilful mix of the ideas and styles of contrasting genres, combining the seemingly incompatible. With the thought of preserving that which so often gets lost in progressive music:
Incolors spans the bridge between progressive and contemporary popular music. Sophisticated progressive metal in the form of pop. Or prop metal for short.
Music that wants to be different. Induced different. Without compromising on complexity. This is:
It results from that colorful attitude towards life that the young musicians identify with. That means above all fun trying new things. Fun with music. And a wide range of influences from which Incolors compose their image. Brought to life by composer and guitarist Markus Vermeulen and singer Gerrit Quade in 2012 as studio project Incolors was completed as a band in 2014 with Pascal Brüll on guitar, Ja-Min Oh on bass-guitar and Dario Huppertz on drums.
The band’s first EP „Diamonds“ was acclaimed among others by the Metal Hammer Magazine for their abundance of facets and creativeness.
Now Incolors are on tour with their brand new Album The Unchained, released on June 1st, 2015. To be found on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. The Unchained was highly acclaimed by the musical press as well. The Neckbreaker Magazine called Incolors the best debut in 2015. WatchMySound described The Unchained as excitingly different. „A must for fans of Protest The Hero, Between The Buried and Me and The Safety Fire“.
As „an outstanding exception in the current music market“ Incolors are coming out of nowhere and go straight to your ears. Besides the large number of magazines, Incolors already impressed the juries of the Niukom Bandcontest 2015 (1. Prize) and the STAWAG Music Award 2016 (2. Prize). Live and as well as on record an unique, energetic experience.
