POWERFUL BLEND OF HEAVY / THRASH / PROGRESSIVE METAL
Today is the release day for “ECHOES FROM AFAR”, a new album by the French prog act PARALLEL MINDS. Two minds working together as one, united by a shared passion, a common vision and the drive to make their dreams a reality. Vocalist Stéphane Fradet and guitarist Grégory Giraudo came together with the goal of creating an incredible heavy metal band; a band that would know no boundaries and accept no rules.
This innovative blend of heavy, thrash and progressive metal was born.
Joined by Eric to support them in this task, they invite you on a musical journey of astonishing richness and diversity.
Their first two albums were unanimously hailed by international critics (Around 80% of metascore on more than 40 reviews for each album). It was time for an even more ambitious sequel, and there it is : This third album pushes all the boundaries in terms of songwriting, emotion, heaviness and production. An album that cannot be tamed all at once, and will require many listenings to grasp its subtleties, although it is surprisingly ear-candy.
Looking for heavy stuff ? No Fate and its djent mood should make you headbang ! Some real “Sabbath-ish” heavy piece ? Here is Provider of Sins.
The “Stay” ballad will tighten your throat with emotion, while the final 12-minute piece goes through intimate piano duo to frenzied speed metal.
Follow them through the meanders of space and some of the best works of science fiction. Let yourself be carried away by these “ECHOES FROM AFAR”
