XXX and Marbles

With the band Turkey of course the question always comes, What is your music like? What is your musical style? Answering this is almost as difficult as coming up with a darn band name!
We come from "different" musical backgrounds -- Heavy Metal and Classical Piano -- and we meet somewhere in the middle. That means that we take harmonies of Chopin and the structure of Beethoven and throw this at smashing drums and distorting keyboards.

Yes, an oxymoron of sorts, but we like this. The idea that a bowling lane starts off very smooth and oily and then ends up rough and course. This allows the ball, on the lane, to spin and move quickly at the start and then hang, curve, and cut sharply at the end. The throw at the beginning is all about discovery, gliding, and a single direction, and the end embodies indecision and friction.

Musically, this could plainly describe the mix of smooth classical melodies with harsh metal overdrive.
