In a world where so much music is bland and generic, CYDEMIND are a breath of fresh air! Mixing progressive rock, jazz, classical, and progressive metal, CYDEMIND are a special and unique band, one we’ll be hearing a lot more from in the future. Influenced by such bands as Dream Theater, Symphony X, Haken, Neal Morse Band, and jazzmen like Avishai Cohen and Tigran Hamasyan, violinist Olivier Allard describes their sound as “violin meets instrumental prog metal!”.
Prolific artists, CYDEMIND released ‘Through Mists and Ages’ in 2014 and their single ‘What Remains’ in 2015, and now the quintet (violin, bass, piano, guitar, drums) have just released their first full-length album. Entitled ‘Erosion’, its six tracks are centered around the theme of nature and its persistence through time. Epic is the word here, with one track clocking in at an impressive 27 minutes
