Thunderbug Punch It's not often I find music that really moves me. And rocks. I'm in awe of Lo-Pan's style. It just flat out rocks. I really dig Chris' riffs, and Jeff's vocals elevate it to a spiritual experience. You can tell they're doing it like they friggin' mean it. I love it. Favorite track: Go West.

Harry Harrison Stoner meets Indie Rock with massive riffs and catchy hooks. Bigger than the Galaxy and more mind bending than light speed trip through the universe…………..things can only be better with Lo Pan. Like a more masculine Sahara Surfers but no less epic; Lo Pan are reaching new heights of gigan- itude (I’m hoping that’s a word). Tripping or not….This stuff is great. I don’t know why I’ve been sitting on this stuff for so long. Favorite track: Pathfinder.

Doom Metal Wizard The style is extremely different from anything else I have ever heard. The soaring vocals and instrument work set this group apart. Favorite track: Alexis.

I TURNED AWAY FROM YOU YOU NEVER KNEW – AND ITS DANGEROUS TO PERCEIVE I WALK THE STREETS THAT I KNEW SITTING SILENT – AND IM BEGGING FOR REPREIVE IM DROWNING IN YOU. YOUR WORDS HAVE WEIGHT FOR ME AND IM DROWNING IN THE DEEP BEEN DRIFTING IN LOVE – LETS SAIL INFINITELY NAVIGATE THE OPEN SEA THERE WAS A TIME I LIVED FOR YOU I KNEW THE BURDEN, AND NOW IM SHOULDERING THE CROSS THE PEDESTAL I PLACED YOU ON IS HIGH ABOVE ME – IN THE GOLDEN AGE OF LOSS IM DROWNING IN YOU. YOUR WORDS HAVE WEIGHT FOR ME AND IM DROWNING IN THE DEEP. WE’VE SUFFERED ENOUGH. LETS SAIL FOR CALMER SEAS. RIDE THE WAVES OF BITTERSWEET FOUND MY WAY – TO THE STAGE IM STANDING ON. I ROMANTICIZE THE EARLY DAYS I JUST CANT SEEM TO FIND THE SUN – THE RENEWING ONE YES I FOUND MY WAY – TO THE OPEN WAVES SUSTAINING ME I CRITICIZE MY LATER YEARS I JUST CANT SEEM TO FIND THE SUN – THE PRECIOUS ONE

about

Lo-Pan Columbus, Ohio

Known for its dichotomic sound which merges sturm und drang heaviness with relentlessly catchy, AOR laden melody, Lo-Pan recorded Subtle at NYC's Reservoir with Grammy Award winning producer James Brown (Foo Fighters, Ghost, NIN) and is the anticipated follow-up to 'In Tensions', a record hailed as "rock more akin for a day at the beach than a nightmarish, post-apocalyptic dungeon lair." ... more
