    If you like progressive rock or metal, funky grooves, with ethno or folklore elements, little blues feeling, post rock, modern rock, art rock, with a pinch of alternative rock, listen our songs from the new album where you can find a crossover of all the above mentioned styles.
    All the various styles which influenced the Steve Misik & Co. during the decade-long creating period form a rounded whole in the band's debut album which despite its diversity didn't loose its original rocker feeling. Several musicians and friends from all over Europe collaborating on the "Schizoemphatic" making the album even more special. We would like to dedicate it to the memory of Stefan Toth.
    The band doesn't like to label its genre. We grew up listening hard rock, metal bands but we've been influenced by funk, soul, blues, progressive rock & metal, art rock, alternative, classic rock, modern rock, nu metal, classical music or jazz, not to mention the latin rhythms and flamenco music. Our music is based on the concept of trying different genres, different imaginary worlds, different fantasies in every song but keeping our own face. In the lyrics we point out the civilization problems of the society and mental world of the human being.

The band consists of musicians who have been performing on the Slovak and foreign (Spanish, American, English, Dutch, German, Czech, Hungarian, etc.) music scene. They have previously worked together in various bands and music projects, but the current set "Steve Misik & Co." settled in April 2013 during the recording of the songs for the debut album "Schizoemphatic" and creating the promo video for the cover version of Deep Purple's ¨You Keep On Moving¨.
The project is generally is of a harder character: hard rock, funk, blues, metal, boogie, soul, sometimes with some ethnic or electronic elements, but it does not limit itself when it comes to genre. "We just wanna play what we want whenever we feel like it" – this is the motto of this bunch. The way in which we got to the recording of the debut album was very long and difficult. Steve Misik with his first band recorded two studio singles which were aired in several Slovakian radio stations and performed at various festivals in Slovakia and Hungary for example "Pepsi-Sziget" in Budapest, "Alternatívne leto" in Osrblie. First music clip was recorded at a Slovakian TV channel "VTV" based on Steve Misik's music. Early songs were released by the G.A. records, X-Distribution, MusicBox CS Agency.
Because of a car accident the bassist unfortunately had to left the band and after that Steve Misik & Co. worked with a new drummer, Feri Kecskemeti on new songs for the debut album. With these songs the band finally could achive the sounding what always wanted to make and could afford their listeners real music, the band's own creature. It took a long time to find a bassist who can replace his predecessor but the Steve Misik & Co. still couldn't reach a calm and productive period in its life. The band faced with the biggest misfortune, the health problems of the lead guitarist and co-founder of the band and especially a good friend. Steve Tóth had to be hospitalized. Steve Misik had to play abroad as a session musician in different projects, because of the break and money required for recording and so on. That time Steve Tóth suddenly passed away which painfully affected everybody because of his creative benefit, friendship and enormous love for music (when he found out that he will not be able to play guitar after his heart surgery he fell into a coma and doctors failed to wake him). Steve Misik composed and arranged the song "My waves" based on his riffs and lyrics. They worked together on that song before his death. The album "Schizoemphatic" is dedicated to his memory. Steve always wanted to finish the work he started but it was difficult to find new members for the broken band and because of the constant travelling and moving from country to country. The members were performing as sessions musicians, participated in various projects of other bands across the Europe (for example in Slovakia the AC/DC revival band "LC/DC", where old childhood friend musicians, drummer Miro Barty, bassist Juraj Pelc and Peter Cmorik also performed). After recording drum parts for some songs Feri left the project for health reasons and was replaced by Miro Barty. The first single because of the web administrator's mistake was promoted with incorrect band name “Clone co.”, because he entered the name of the single instead the name of the band, so we kicked his ass. In another line up with bassist Tibor Borsky they recorded promo single Clone back in December 2007, containing the song Clone, aired in various online radios in USA and Europe. The single name have originated its title during recording while our sound engineer Rolo ¨helped us¨ with the transmission of equipment and instruments, whose acid from the accumulators has been recently poured from the boot, its seats got soaked up with it and all our pants and assess have nearly been etched too.
Tibor Borsky wasn't able to follow the cooperation because of the lack of time (he wanted to work on his own music project). In May of 2013 Juraj Pelc joined the project. The band doesn't like to label its genre. We grew up listening hard rock, metal bands but we've been influenced by funk, soul, blues, ethnic music, classical music or jazz. Our music is based on the concept of trying different genres, different imaginary worlds, different fantasies in every song but keeping our own face.

Track Name: My Waves
My waves

Caught on the short wave, A loud sneer
Looking for its source, Looking at the skies
Dialing on the radio scale, I feel so blind

why, why, why... Now I understand
That laughter so loud
And that every street and every tree
talks about my life

With flap on my ears, I sit in a book-case
Postman brings me a letter, Good news ...I hope
Is open, I read, My jaw drops
In a puzzle competition

I won one... damned radio
Is there no station, On the radio scale
where I can find, no mockery of my life?

At last I, Now I understand,
That laughter so loud
And that every street and every tree
talks about my life

On the radio scale
There´s no station where I could find
No mockery, of my foolish life.
Track Name: Shadows
Shadows

Egoists under the bounds of power
thinking they've got it
surviving like worms on the deck
their life is empty
longing to be filled
won't succeed to realize that the thing they look for
can't be found in money

ref: live at the level of rivals
come under the varnished tees of pseudo-elite society
empty souls filled with a sense of precedence
with privilegies of masks they show each other everyday

I sing about them
they don't want to hear my words
that could pull down their dogmatic world
puppets following traditions habits
they've made themselves to limit our world

Shadows of the past
you can live in that dark
I will never be one of you.
Track Name: Online
Online

Online you feel good lookin’ and pride
Online you feel smart and wise

What would you do without it?
Would your brain just explode?
Do you even see the real word?
Or is it something you don't wanna know?

All the time You’re on your mobile device
All the day You just can't keep it away
Just put it down Just leave it behind
Shut down that fake world And open up your eyes

Online you feel good lookin’ and pride
Online you feel smart and wise

Hipster, Hamster online gangster

What would you do without it?
Would your mind just collapse?
Do you even know reality?
Or is it something you just lack?

All the time You’re on that social site
All the day You just can't break away
Just put it down, Just leave it behind,
Shut down that fake world And open up your mind

Open up your eyes!
Go out and taste the world
Open up your eyes!
Forget about what you heard

Open up your mind!
Your world is not the same
Open up your mind!
That life is just a game

Open up your mind!
How general Patton said
Open up your mind!
losers on-line
Track Name: May
May

I wanna feel you
see you /today/
but you are always melting in a mist
and loosing your faith
death and life
are getting you out of sight

how do you want to get to the gate of your eyes?
Which don't cry just the way to be

lost and found
in sorrowful state
of vanished and ruined sand castle

in mines of emotions and fancy
the world is like it wants to be
but it doesn't deny your kingdom of dreams
I dunno know why that
empty feeling returns,

When I try for completeness of feel
but I betray consciousness and desire,
there is only pleasure rulling over,

but I dont want it, thus,
already its not her,
desire is the beauty of love that gives back,
not only passing by.
Track Name: Who Cares
Who cares about it

As a child I used to have big dreams
big ideas, faith in justice
faith in love and the truth of your words
I wanted to be a good example

full of feelings and understanding

Kidness kills, rebelion suffers
who cares about it, just relax, breath nicely,
let yourself go with the flow

don't be your idol, live your dreams

Ref: scream out your pain, don't hide like a little type
spit out your anger into the face of that nipple
who tries to chain you down
Don't let them take you down, shout your feelings out
you'll be yourself, take control
who cares about it, then you'll just be controlled
who cares, we have it all in us

the evil that’s needed to keep the balance,
so don't back up at your own expense,
stand up against it even if you lose everything
the offsets would turn us into machines

which are commanded by anyone
according to their needs

Ref: scream out ...

You don't like this song, you have your own truth
you are so sure, about your importance, ... who cares.
Track Name: Clone
Clone

...sex......it's alright...just relax…
I wanna feel this inside, I wanna know that it's the way
I like to change the life, so that nobody needs this

scientific enthusiasm, sick spasms
nobody wanna let the children starve
a new contraption of the world, a great gift
a new entry in the book of destiny

...fight...its alright...money rule...
I like to change the life, so that nobody needs this
bad eggs shall suffer for all, of us in endless pain
lookin’ around in my soul, why and who I’m
walking around back and forth, burning my head

body, soul, can't find salvation
exist only as waste

deformed thinking, deformed existences
no one will survive that, even a sane eye will go mad
wanted to save the world, by a comfortable compromise

I wanna feel this inside...

they will clone us as they wish
there will be only servants
and a few of those who rule
the laws of nature are set

oh god say...
I ask do we want a warped world?
everything will be just a clone?
I’m lookin' around in my soul
so why, and who em I ?
Track Name: I'm Here
I'm here

I am here, but they still don't know, about me, I am here
I am here, open your eyes, your responsability, is not my fault
/and/I don't have a mother, I don't have a father
I'm not a sin, you're responsably

Saliva of old deviants stream down the skin and burn humanity
No benefactor with a permanent smile won’t help
The whole world is blind, and who want to see it, their eyes will be quickly shut
by the needs of our beautiful consumer world
In our 21st century, six year olds still work in factories only for food

Where were you, when the first hits came
nobody supported me, you've had some other big problems
where were you, when I needed just a word
where were you, when I fell into the chasm
of dreams and my feelings stopped
where were you, when my heart was dying
because of those feelings, I didn't have anybody

Where were you when your children were taken to coltan mines
dying breathless, Buried under the clay and dirt of your sins
Where were you when the money and power saturated pervo
molested them with his sick desires

Who are you, who sell their own children for their needs
Who are you, who torture your own children with your tyran deviant minds

But the time will come, when you’ll need me, and I’ll say, I’m not here.

I am here, but they still don't know, about me, I am here.
Track Name: Papluhy
Papluhy

Médiá, šíria strach
volených, nezaujíma ani jeden z nás

niet už o com spievat
všetci to poznáme, nemá zmysel
opakovat, ze sa zmeníme v lepších
len na chvíľu, po nadchnutí

vrátime sa skôr do starých koľají
akoby sa stalo dané, neočakávané
skúšame hľadat ale cesty sú už zarastené
krovím nášich vín

smrt, láska, štastie, život krása rastie,
už len to pochopit, všetkému rozumiet
ukazujúc prstom na „iných“
len aby sme sa zbavili pocitu viny

mysliac že cítime tú pravú pravdu, bohov
chápajúc ju s nezmyslami
to všetko sme už vedeli,
ten smiech nám aspon ostal, ten ostal
ľudia sú unavený snahou
v porozumení sveta,
ako ten svet zmenia
s výsledkom že sa nic nezmení
aj tak všetkému vládnu...

záujmy a ciele vyssieho sveta.
Track Name: For You
For you

Guardian angels, they're still on the earth
you can call'em Gods, Aliens,
Power, Energy even strangers.

/disregarded friends/

You live your life, neglect their presence,
while they're constantly around you,
happy to shelter you /to help you/

ref: They are still with you, think of you also in the distance,
coming again and again /to you/

/disregarded friends/

they are with you even when you're faraway
thousands of miles
they stand by you and their mind is your shield,
when you'll feel depression, loneliness, lassitude, waste
they are with you when you must go on in the struggle of life

ref: They are still with you, think of you also in the distance,
coming again and again /to you/
in the blue moments you forget them,

/disregarded friends/

Guardian angels, they're still on the earth
you can call'em Gods, Aliens,
Power, Energy even strangers.
in the blue moments you forget them.
