Bio

Iron Butterfly is perhaps one of the most influential psychedelic bands out there and they are well recognized for putting a heavy metal slant to their psychedelic sound.

Seeing them live entails groovy vibes of hazy organs run through a whirling Leslie speaker and phased guitars saturated in thick sounds of distortion. Their songs go on for extensive amounts of time sucking the audience in a psychedelic whirlwind of delightful and interesting tones. The whole audience will be sure to go crazy when they break out their psychedelic classic "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", which has made it on VH1's list of greatest hard rock songs of all time. This song encompasses everything great about psychedelic music. It contains long musical drones in the minor key progression and it later gets into more exotic sounds with some gypsy scales in the chorus. Live performances of this song allow for the members to appropriately show off their skills with drum solos, guitar solos, and organ solos.

Iron Butterfly's shows are a colorful experience to take part in. They have vibrant psychedelic colors projected onto the stage and tie-dyed banners displayed behind them. The audience is always enthusiastic to see Iron Butterfly. They dance in psychedelic trances and breathe in every part of the live performance. Iron Butterfly has had strong influences on many great bands including Led Zeppelin. Iron Butterfly helped influence Led Zeppelin's heavy psychedelic sound that they are so renowned for producing. Jimmy Page has even stated that Led Zeppelin's name was somewhat inspired by Iron Butterfly's name. Not only has Iron Butterfly achieved great critical success, but they have also achieved commercial success with their album, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, having sold more than 30 million copies making it one of the best selling albums of all time.
