Confusion Field is a progressive rock project from Finland. It was formed in 2017 by a long-time musician and songwriter Tomi Kankainen. Kankainen produced nine songs and recorded them with the help from his friends and old band mates Petri Honkonen (drums) and ex Swallow the Sun member Markus Jämsen (lead guitars).
Confusion Field is a blend of many musical influences from the world of prog, pop and metal. Musically Confusion Field is a mix of old and new, light and heavy, soothing and brooding.
Debut album‘s lyrical theme deals with psychological issues, reflecting the struggles and decisions of an individual in a modern world.
This is what the press says:
“There is no getting away from the fact that Finnish band Confusion Field are going to be compared with Riverside for their debut album, Disconnection Complete. But the music is undeniably reminiscent of Riverside, so comparisons with that band are surely inevitable. Even the vocals are similar to those of Mariusz Duda. The inflections and accent are different, of course, but the intonation bears a definite resemblance. However, Confusion Field are in no way derivative or unoriginal. They may wear their influences on their sleeves, but they certainly add enough of their own sound to make Disconnection Complete fresh and interesting. Highly recommended for fans of melancholic metal such as Riverside or Katatonia, but also for fans of neo-prog artists such as t, IT, or John Mitchell, or for those who enjoy the atmospheric soundscapes of bands such as Pink Floyd or Nosound.“
