Trans Earth Injection is the band's third full length album. It is released through FREIA Music and contains 7 epic songs. The self produced album is recorded on various locations around the globe by among others Marcel van de Vondervoort (Astrosoniq, Roadburn Festival). The album is mixed and mastered by Jochem Jacobs (Textures, Face Tomorrow). Those two ingredients combined with the powerful songs from Semistereo have made it a mindblowing record.
Semistereo serves its Alternative rock with a pinch of both Postrock and Progrock. At times, Trans Earth Injection is erratic and unpredictable. In the media Semistereo is compared to Oceansize, Karnivool, Deftones and A Perfect Circle.
Even more than on previous releases, the band combines strong melodies with atmospheric depth and raw eruptions. The songs on the album support and showcase the strong and skillful vocals of Paul Glandorf. The production and overall sound are better than ever.
With their current, experienced line-up, Semistereo is ready for the future. The musicians played in bands like A Day’s Work, Heidevolk, Mondvolland and Tree Funk Concept and were support acts for bands like Marillion, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Living Colour, Riverside and many other bands.
Live, Semistereo grabs you by the throat, not letting go until the final chord has faded. Consider yourself warned!!

Arcane was a wonderful melodic prog metal band, which split up and the members formed 2 other great bands: Caligula's Horse and Echotide. That would make Arcane some kind of supergroup :)
This is great music, and beautiful production with good dynamic range. Mandatory to be in every prog fan's library.
