Cydemind “Breach” The Walls of Normality With Next Violin Prog Metal Single
Montreal instrumental progressive metal band Cydemind is offering up its next single from their forthcoming album “The Descent” due out November 4th, 2022 to follow their 2017 debut album “Erosion”.
Says keyboardist Camille Delage:
“We’re thrilled to introduce Breach, our brand new single! It’s a high-energy song that we believe is going to be appreciated by many fans!”
This single comes just a month after Cydemind unveiled ‘Hoax’.
Guitarist Kevin Paquet:
“While Hoax may have surprised prog fans, Breach is more in line with the classic sounds of prog metal (if there can ever be anything classic about prog!). It’s got hard riffs, a captivating chorus, and unleashed solo”
The song musters a lot of these classic prog elements reminiscent of Dream Theater and Symphony X.
Violinist Olivier Allard:
“Of course when you make prog music, it’s hard not to take inspiration from these bands,”. “They have molded the genre into what it is now. But I believe that the contribution of both the violin and the grand piano gives Breach a distinctive, organic, Cydemindesque sound, dare we say!”
The accompanying music video shows the band in their own jam space situated near Montreal.
Drummer Alexandre Dagenais explains:
“We opted for something more straightforward in order to put the focus on the song and the playing. Our video editor, Joël Lalancette, did an outstanding job of matching the pace of the video with the song’s tempo and atmosphere. It’s dynamic and you can really understand what’s going on musically.”
