Blå Lotus is a progressive rock trio from Sweden who's motto is, “No six-strings allowed.” Formed during the fall of 2016, Blå Lotus was basically three guys with a vision of making heavy prog rock without the aid of a guitar. Heavily influenced by old school progressive acts of yore, they immediately set out to create a fulfilling soundscape equipped with just bass, drums, and Hammond organ and a vast array of lengthy jam-based compositions interspersed with heavy stoner-like riffs.

I'm not a musician, but 3RDegree creates music that revs my imagination. It makes me deeply think and feel simultaneously. It's like reading philosophy with a stupendous soundscape. I highly recommend this latest work by the band. Keith Bauer kabauer
