The Cyans Short Info

The Cyans is an independent international power trio from Leipzig/Germany that plays
original music apparently closest to alternative rock, based on songs written by Zomb
Menon. The band plays concerts regularly in the Leipzig area.

The band’s debut album, Shaman Raga, is slated for release in spring 2015 worldwide via
the Internet. The debut album has already attracted attention from the live music and
broadcast media, leading to several interesting collaborations. The album features 13 songs
on topics like current world events, love, individual perceptions, travel, spirituality and
personal musings. Shaman Raga was chosen as the album name due to a string of
coincidences around the band and the recording process. Following the album launch, The
Cyans encourage collaborations to play concerts in North America, Europe and India.

Every member of The Cyans has had major to significant success in other musical projects
and releases. Their collective experience and diverse international backgrounds add to the
unique quality of The Cyans – as live rockers and studio masters.

Zomb, who hails from Bombay/India, fronted one of India’s most successful heavy metal
bands from the 00s called Metakix, while also being pivotal in the development and current
success of the Indian independent music scene. He enjoys a globally-spread fan following
owing to his musical works prior to The Cyans. Over the last two decades he has been
featured in print, radio, TV and the Internet, including - a mention in the book Soundscapes II
by the Head of Music Department at Harvard University/USA, an extensive documentary
feature by BBC/UK and a frequent voice heard nationally over All India Radio. He has
enjoyed further success in recent years as a solo musician via concerts and release of music
singles in Germany.

Ivan hails from St. Petersberg/Russia and has received several musical accolades as a
child. He has played drums for several bands and music ranging from western classical to
heavy metal to electronica to alternative rock in both Russia and Germany. He has toured
China in 2014 with Mr. Dohnary, his other music project. Also in 2014, he was involved in
movie soundtrack production and commercial art projects via his self-owned pro recording
studio, Ermilov Soundworks in Leipzig/Germany.

Waan comes from Kazan/Russia. With Shaman Raga, he launches two personal debuts as
well - one in album mixing & mastering, and another in the avatar of a bass player for the
first time in his music career. In the 00s, he was the vocalist of Alace in Russia, an
alternative metal band influenced by Deftones. In 2013, he launched himself as a solo
musician in Germany under the moniker Mirro Blac via an album release. Additional to bass
guitar and production for The Cyans, Waan along with Ivan, is an integral part of the band’s
arrangements and songwriting.
