Paragon Releasing "Dead Planet"

Portland, Oregon's purveyors of progressive deathcore from Paragon are set to release their debut full-length album, "Dead Planet," on July 22nd, 2016.

"Dead Planet," which combines a foundation of deathcore with a mix of ambience, melodic guitar breaks, and heavy groove oriented riffing, was produced and engineered by the band's own guitarist, Eric Gemme at GemLabs Audio (Extortionist, Navigator, Burdens) in Portland, OR.

While both the band and the album started out as a one man project several years ago, Paragon has since evolved into a full fledged band that is fully prepared to bring the aural assault that is "Dead Planet" to the masses.

Speaking on the band's behalf, Eric comments: "After 4 years of writing, reflecting, and refining, I'm happy to say that 'Dead Planet' will finally be released to the public. This CD was written through the absolute worst and best times of my life, and I think the epic, heavy hitting, and groovy riffs translate well throughout. For the lyrics, We wanted to take a more focused approach - from explaining Earth's position in space and providing different scenes and scenarios on the planet, to our exploration of other places within the universe. We have recently solidified the line-up as a 4-piece, and couldn't be happier to bring these riffs to life on the stage." More...
