    Album info:
    Recovering from the debut album release last year, Melancholic Prosperity's album "Imperiously Arbitrary" is composed of seven fully instrumental songs with 40 minutes of material featuring trumpets, mellophones, Rickenbacker bass guitar tone and solos, and a dabble of avant-garde ambientness, plus a solo piano track! The album itself opens with a 9-minute part 1 of the title track, followed by a few proggy shorter tunes leading into the 10-minute part 2 of the title track and then a post script short tune "Coda." All instruments played by Ryan Hankins except guitar, which features Landon Hankins on the song "Mellophonics." The overall sound of the album is an accumulation of influences which I think you all may appreciate--especially the fact that the overall sound is still unique.

    Major influences for this album:
    Chicago, Yes, Maynard Ferguson, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Rick Wakeman, Chris Squire, The Beatles

    Band bio:
    Melancholic Prosperity is a progressive rock band formed by songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Ryan Hankins. It can be described as symphonic prog with roots going back to the 60's and 70's, with appreciation and influence associated with Yes, Pink Floyd, Genesis, and many other prog bands. Ryan previously was bassist for: prog rock band Dissonati, prog metal band Fistful of Britney, psychedelic rock band Sons of Neptune, and alt rock band Zariah.
