They are BACK ! After a long sleep, due to the band not only having lost their bassist but at the same time a very close friend, their enthusiasm was thwarted in carrying on as a band. However some years later they awoke from their long sleep, and carried on doing that what their old bassist would probably have wanted them to carry on doing, and that was making music. This tragic loss had also made them stronger, better and more creative in their works, after all they had a good length of time to gather up new ideas for the future! Worth it, it was.
And so again from the original foundations of Cuerock in the 80´s they where back in the scene, being more melodic but also more intricate/extrovert+ intellectual with their new emerged brand of progressive rock. They where joined in 2010 by a very accomplished/professional British frontman who himself was a very highly respected and known vocalist on the U.K. music scene of the late 70/80´s I.e. new wave of British heavy metal, touring and billing with such names as Praying Mantis, Tigers-of-Pan-Tang, Thin Lizzy, Krokus, April Wine and many more. So now Cuerock were finally fully equipped for a furious new start ahead.
When approached and asked by outsiders as to how they would care to describe their form of music, well, the answer would probably be as follows: a melodic, meaningful form of progressive rock with an element of commercialism, music probably better fitting for the more Intellectual music listener/collector, composed by a bunch of very gifted musicians, without becoming extreme technical or heartless.
