On top of that, Bad Bones’ tunes will have you singing along in the car, in the shower,

Parasyche: “Insanity Origins” – sheer technical aggression!

Parasyche is a Metal band from Santiago, Chile. They started out in 2011 with Matías Becerra (Lead Guitar) and Nico España (Drums) throwing around ideas, and were then joined by Nicolás Borie (Lead Singer, Guitar) a year later. In 2016 they decided to work on releasing their first album, under the official name of Parasyche adding Cristian Suárez (Bass and Vocals) to complete the line-up. Since releasing the album “Insanity Origins” the band began to promote themselves virally through social media and touring Chile. The band is currently working on their second album which is planned for release in the first quarter of 2019.

“Insanity Origins” is a completely unhinged and revelatory record. Parasyche take their progressive and thrash metal-busting specialties to the edge, set it aflame, and push it off a cliff- and do it with style. The only way an album like this can maintain any level of coherence is consistent musical anarchy – numerous styles, both vocal and instrumental, are woven together in one insane tapestry.

Most worthy of praise among the musicians, the rhythm section drummer España and bassist Suárez, who shift gears fluidly to match Borie’s every-vocal-type-imaginable abilities. Matías Becerra brings the metal to Parasyche, playing riffs that walk the line between crushing bolts and fitting nuts. Of course he can shred with the best of them too.

“Insanity Origins” is a musical triumph. It blends so many things together it’s one of the most unique and hard-hitters of the year. Listening to the album in its entirety is the way to go. The songs roll into one another providing an exciting listening experience. After your initial listen, you will discover a newfound respect for metal music.

Most perceive metal as screaming and uninspired power chords, but Parasyche, alongside a handful of other groups will teach you that taught there is so much more to metal music. Amidst the bone-crushing riffs and assaulting rhythms, they are able to instill enough inventive nuances and unpredictable dynamics to elevate this work into the realm of refined splendor.

From the opening track, “Box of Hate”, this album is a ceaselessly gripping journey. Combining challenging progressive musical textures with metal’s ferocious mindset Parasyche embark on executing the musical madness of “Vesania” – six minutes of head-banging mayhem sung in Spanish.

In addition to the irresistible melodic, textural, and philosophical gravity of the track, there’s an abundance of harsher and more arresting moments. Not least the explosive shredding and soloing. “Detonation” starts where the previous left track off.  Borie delivers every note and every scream with overwhelming amounts of passion that never cease to amaze and impress. The bass makes the guitar riffs work and it is one of the key components to the album’s overall sound.

“The Treason” opens with high powered shredding and never lets up from there. The polyrhythms that drummer España pulls off is nothing short of astounding, as he shows off his finesse and stamina. Not only does the band deliver in harshness and intensity, they also add many epic and atmospheric elements to this record.

Many of which can be heard on the slow burning “Land of Lies”, the multilayered melodic crush of “Stolen Liberty”, and the grungy progressive dynamics of “Arise”. It is a soothing calm before the storm which arrives with “Cachafaz” – a stunning masterpiece of sheer technical aggression that is the cornerstone of this album.

“Need” grooves hard with fast guitars and thick rhythms; Borie’s singing is intense as he spews the lyrics with full impact. Matías Becerra’s guitar work is at the center of the piece, and he fearlessly unleashes abrasive sonic assaults. “The Wolf Inside” is potent and power packed with intense hollow melodic riffs and bass lines, and a perfect way to close the album down.

This one is a pure electric eargasm for guitar lovers. Throughout this album, heavy guitar riffing, soloing, incredible drumming and powerful vocals remain at the forefront, with Parasyche always knowing how to get the balance right. They stick to highly technical concept while shredding their way through an emotional backdrop, displaying their instrumental and vocal virtuosity.

In their spare time Parasyche also have a passion for making videos of classic songs they cover in the most entertaining to ways, garnering them millions of views. Checkout their version of Bohemian Rhapsody – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7PR02o-T7s
