Iranian prog band Hyper Planet share video for their ‘To Live With Wisdom’ track

It’s not every day we get a message via Facebook from a Dream Theater inspired Tehran-based Iranian prog band, so when we do, our ears tend to prick up!

Dedicated to 14-year-old Nikta Esfandani (look up the circumstances of her tragic death in 2019), Hyper Planet’s impressive‘To Live With Wisdom’ features the group’s father playing the Santur/Qanun, a traditional instrument developed in the area of Iran and Mesopotamia dating back to around 669 BC (according to Wikipedia).

Hyper Planet play full-on, well conceived metallic prog that’s more than worthy of your attention, so we thought we’d share it here!

More information via the band’s social media.

Thanks for dropping in!
