Toska is Rabea Massaad, Dave Hollingworth & Ben Minal. An instrumental 3-piece who play heavy, cinematic, progressive music.
Formed in Brighton in 2015 by three musicians who set out to write music without boundaries, Toska have been making huge waves in progressive and muso circles since their inception. Together they bring an impressive range of skill, experience and knowledge to create music that’s both intellectually stimulating, but also highly accessible.
Taking influence from a huge span of music including Karnivool, SikTh, Hans Zimmer, Thomas Newmann and Gustav Holst, Toska use vast dynamics and obscure chord voicing to convey a very emotional and cinematic tonality. It’s almost impossible to pin a genre tag on them, but words such as prog, metal, post-rock and math-rock could be used to describe their sonic elements.
