Stylistically, the part-British, part-Hungarian band To-Mera have not been easy to categorize. Most of their fans would agree that they fall into the metal category, but the band has not been affected by one type of metal exclusively; To-Mera's adventurous and experimental work has been described as everything from progressive metal to goth metal to alternative metal, and they have also incorporated elements of death metal and black metal. But To-Mera's influences have by no means been limited to metal. Metal-wise, they have been influenced by everyone from Dream Theater and Symphony X to Dark Funeral, Meshuggah, Opeth, and Lacuna Coil, but they also have non-metal influences that include jazz, European classical music, East European folk, and world music. Directly or indirectly, To-Mera's experimentation owes something to non-headbangers who range from Yes to Tori Amos to Chick Corea's 1970s fusion powerhouse Return to Forever. Very few metal bands have been serious about incorporating jazz elements, but electric fusion and acoustic, straight-ahead post-bop have both left their mark on To-Mera's material.
