Starting in April 2013 it soon became clear that, when two composers with similar taste and the ability to cover all instruments meet, this would be the blast. Choosing CORE as their band name thus was the obvious, reflecting the "inner circle" feeling of the two. While first the production of existing compositions was the goal, they meanwhile started to compose songs together, mixing their wide variety of influences into their new combined song material. Curry is fond of progressive rock and bands like "Within Temptation", "Evanesence" or "Nightwish", Reti's influences mainly stem from hard rock, metal and punk bands like "Led Zeppelin", "Cure", "Ufo" and many others. Having rock music as their melting point play ground, they released their first album "Level 1" in March 2014 and their second album "One Step Further" in June 2014, composed, arranged, played, recorded, mixed, mastered and produced all by themselves within an ultra-short time. Using very little correction and few re-recordings, their songs keep a very vivid and live-sounding character that prefers the authentic, direct, raw and pure sounding over the nowadays over-corrected and over-produced.
