The history of the Dutch Kingfisher Sky actually begins in 2001, when drummer Ivar de Graaf leaves the gothic metal band Within Temptation, who is currently experiencing a major international breakthrough. Ivar wants to fully focus on the development of his own musical work. Together with the classically trained singer Judith Rijnveld, Ivar takes all the time and rest to write compositions that are not tied to a particular genre or style.
This musical style is difficult to describe, but the term progressive myth-rock covers the charge nicely. Think of Heart, Clannad, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Mike Oldfield and Pink Floyd on the one hand and prog-rock like Porcupine Tree on the other hand. In short: contrasts – both atmospheric and hard as dreamy and rocking.
