Forbidden Planet is a 4-piece instrumental band





Forbidden Planet is a 4-piece instrumental band dedicated to boldly exploring the uncharted terrain of genre-bending progressive rock. With an aural salad spanning neo-classical, rock, grunge, jazz, ambient and all shades of metal, Forbidden Planet draws inspiration from the rich and varied musical history of our species to dredge the depths of the subconscious and call upon the Monsters from the Id.
Forbidden Planet’s debut album “From the Bedroom to Oblivion: Two Decades of Obscurity”. Released in October 2015, the album has recieved glowing reviews both locally in Singapore and abroad. Chris Ang, writing for one of Asia’s most loved online magazines, Bandwagon included the album in the Industry picks for ‘Best Albums of 2015’ calling it a “hidden gem”.
U.K. music blog site, Ready To Rock wrote “Forbidden Planet balance musical and compositional excellence, with just enough mystery to keep us coming back for more. This is an excellent album that I unhesitatingly recommend for prog rock and guitar fans in general”. Radio Heatwave, one of Singapore’s largest internet radio station said, “The album is by far the best balancing act since Joseph Gordon Levitt in The Walk, as at no point in the album does one invade the musical space of the other, and the most prime example of this in the album would have to be its musical apex, “Put On The Suit”. Online Music magazibe Moshin Mag posted, “a solid and thoroughly impressive debut album 
with balanced sounds and powerful instrumental skills”.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration?

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
