Aslan was formed in the early 90's as a means to rise above existing, stagnant forms of music. The music of Aslan is an anything goes style of music. There are no questions asked and no boundaries to what should be the ingrediants of Aslan music. Progressive in the purest sense of the word. In the likes of late 70's Rush, Yes, Dream Theater, Pink Floyd, early 70's Genesis, and Iron Maiden (just to name a few).
Extreme technical virtuosity is a must. Within' one measure, the music of ASLAN can jump from the heaviest of metal to the smoothest of jazz. Not for the sake of doing so, the lyrics dictate the direction of the musical change. One thing that consistent in the ASLAN sound and lyrical direction is the search for harmony with God!
It is a never-ending battle to exercise the fight to push pure, heavy, uplifting, powerful, spiritual, technically challenging music. If one listener gets it, it is worth every ounce of trial and effort!
