Cydemind Posts Full Album Stream

Influenced by prog metal bands such as Symphony X, Dream Theater, and Haken, along with classical jazz and progressive rock, Montreal's instrumental group Cydemind offers a refreshing take on progressive music centered around the violin on new album "Erosion."

The quintet is proud to premiere a full stream of that release today, which consists of six compositions including the 27 minute title track. Cydemind comments:

"We’re very excited to finally release 'Erosion.' We’ve been working on it for so long; to finally launch it feels like we’ve reached the summit of a mountain that took 5 years to climb. We hope you’ll appreciate the scenery as much as we do. Thanks for supporting us and here’s to many more albums!”

New album "Erosion" was recorded in Montreal at The Grid with producer Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist, Beyond Creation, Neuraxis) along with additional recording of grand piano done at Studio 270.

Album artwork was handled by drummer and band co-founder Alexandre Dagenais along with lyrical poems included with the release written by pianist Camille Delage. The poems describe each composition as the album gravitates around the theme of nature and its persistence through time. For more info on the album, check out our full interview with Cydemind here.
