A one-man progressive metal undertaking, bioplan is the brainchild of Swedish multi-instrumentalist and particle physicist turned metal frontman Andi Kravljaca.
Guitar, keyboards, bass, vocals
Most known for his work as lead vocalist for bands such as Seventh Wonder, Thaurorod, Aeon Zen, Nergard and Silent Call, Andi Kravljaca got his start as a YouTube guitarist.
Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, he boasts a discography spanning 16 full length albums and 13 years.
bioplan is the essence of this songwriting experience, condensed into punchy, retrofuturistic, instrumental progressive metal showcasing Kravljaca’s synthesizer soundscapes and guitar playing.
