So many bands nowadays sound alike, and even more shoot for a linear sounding style, it's due time a band steps forward to break the stale mold of the progressive metal scene. “To create a fresh perspective on progressive metal and help to rebuild their scene” - that’s the mission of The Great Divide. The Great Divide is a four-piece collective of best friends based out of Chicago, IL, formed in late 2013. The band prides themselves on doing everything independently, from recording their own music to running all aspects of their business and marketing.
'PROTOFORM' is a concept album set in a transhumanist future where the human form can be augmented and enhanced physically, intellectually and psychologically through advancements in technology. Over time the human mind fails to distinguish the artificial from the real and the line between man and machine blurs. The over-indulgent lose their sense of humanity as they drift through synthetic dreamscapes.
Protoform tracked, mixed and mastered by Aaron Beale at Parallel Recording
Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, the Northern manifests one of the finest contemporary metal acts on the scene. Amidst the agonizing grooves, labyrinthine time signatures, dazzling fretwork and ruthless vocals, this five piece symbolizes a new dimension of modern metal.
Soooo, my name is Clément BELIO, I'm 22, french, and multi-instrumentalist.
Actually I'm firstly drummer, I play the drums since I'm 7 y.o, and when I was 15, began to play guitar.
Now I play and record bass, piano, saxophone and vocals too on my own records.
Obviously, my rythmic experience led me into Metal.
Actually my favorites "genres" would be progressive (metal and rock), jazz (rock, fusion, contemporary), mathrock, orchestral stuff.
So I like all this weird stuff with complex structure/shapes/chords, polyrythms with cool drums grooves and 8 strings unusual tones...
