The progressive sounds of British rock bands, including Yes, King Crimson and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, inspired the music of Swiss trio, Deyss.
Representing the shared vision of guitarist Giovanni DeVita and vocalist Patrick Fragniere, Deyss began performing in the clubs of French Switzerland in the late-1970s. After honing their sound for several years, they released a six-track mini-album, At King in 1985. Although dominated by inexpensive keyboards and electronic drums, the album offered a hint of the group's symphonic approach. Deyss reinforced their musical message with the full-length album, Vision In The Dark, two years later. An album of early tracks, recorded live in 1979, The Dragonfly From The Sun, was released in 2000. ~ Craig Harris
