Check Out Melodic Prog-Rockers ‘Mad Symphony’

Mad Symphony is the collaboration of professional Vancouver-based musicians who collectively have many years of experience writing, recording, and touring internationally with various acts. Formed from the ashes of Seattle grunge-metal band Soulbender (which also featured Michael Wilton of Queensryche fame on guitar), lifelong friends and collaborators Dave Groves (guitar) and Wes Hallam (drums) joined up with multi-instrumentalist/producer/engineer Ted Tosoff (Blue Voodoo) in 2018 to begin writing for a new, as-yet-unnamed project. 

Ted knew of powerhouse vocalist Kevin Wright (The Wilds), whose raunchy and melodic vocal stylings a-la Bon Scott and Robert Plant, fit the new songs perfectly; Kevin was quickly recruited into the fold. To round out the lineup, the formative members didn’t have to look far. Dave and Wes had both played with keyboardist Mike Russell (Sweeney Todd) and bassist Amrit Prasad (Assault), but not always in the same bands or at the same time.  With the addition of Mike on keys and Amrit on bass Mad Symphony immediately began recording their debut album and rehearsing.

Mad Symphony will tell you that they write songs with a message of hope and resiliency that harkens back to the glory days of rock and roll.  Screaming guitars, driving drums, and huge vocals combine with melodic keyboard orchestrations and thundering bass to make the sonically dense and raucous sound that is… Mad Symphony.

Check them out now…

Jethro Tull Have Released a New Animated Video for Their 1971 Classic, “Aqualung.”

Jethro Tull have released a new animated video for their 1971 classic, “Aqualung.”

The video was directed by Sam Chegini and begins with the famous illustration of the old man on the Aqualung album cover before expanding into a stark and often devastating meditation on homelessness, from those living on city streets to refugees displaced around the world. Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson also makes a cameo in the clip, appearing via the rotoscope animation effect.
