Two minds working together as one, united by a shared passion, a common vision and the drive to make their dreams a reality. Vocalist Stéphane Fradet and guitarist Grégory Giraudo came together with the goal of creating an incredible heavy metal band; a band that would know no boundaries and accept no rules. Their band would combine the crisp, precision riffing of thrash metal with the soaring melodies and fleet-fingered solos of classic metal; it would marry musical muscle and aggression with a real depth of emotion and sit sincere ballads next to sprawling epics and surround them both with steel clad metal attacks. Conceived by two minds working together, each bringing an individual creativity to the mix, the name of their band was obvious…Parallel Minds.
The epic grandeur of album centre piece ‘Syria’ features guest vocals from Kobi Farhi (Orphaned Land) and Yossi Sassi (Yossi Sassi Band, ex-Orphaned Land) and one of two bonus tracks on the CD edition of the album is an immaculate cover of the Savatage classic, ‘Tonight He Grins Again’. If you love metal, if its essence lives in your heart and soul, then Parallel Minds are the band for you and Every Hour Wounds… is an album you need to hear!
