Cydemind Releasing Debut Violin Prog Metal Album "Erosion"

When instrumental prog metal meets violin, the outcome is truly a unique sound that sets a band apart from all others. Introducing Montreal's Cydemind: with an instrumental prog technique blended into violin as the vocal piece making for an auditory experience like no other.

Violinist Oliver Allard comments: “I grew up listening to metal while playing classical music. I’ve always dreamed of merging these two musical environments that many would find conflicting. Cydemind is living proof they can actually be complimented perfectly together."

Influenced by bands such as Symphony X, Dream Theater, Haken, Plini, Rush along with classical, jazz and progressive rock, Cydemind is ready to present first full-length album "Erosion" on May 26th, 2017 to follow the 2014 EP "Through Mist and Ages." The album 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.

“Even if we are a metal band, classical music is part of our identity and it was clear starting the project that we wanted to record with the most acoustic instruments possible.” explains Camille Delage, a graduate of classical piano from CEGEP St-Laurent in Montreal.
