Mind Over Four  


Mind Over Four's music occupies that gray area between metal and uncommercial hard rock, but with a quirkiness in the songwriting that makes them difficult to describe or categorize. They attracted a small but loyal following over the years, but never broke in to the big time, most likely due to their choosing to write music on their own terms rather than chase the trend of the day. Apparently they broke up, and retired from the music business, shortly after the release of Empty Hands.
