DEAFENING OPERA - "Blueprint"
The German rock band, Deafening Opera, was formed in Munich in 2006 by lead singer Adrian Daleore, guitarists Moritz Kunkel and Thomas Moser, and bassist Christian Eckstein, and joined by Konrad Gonschorek on drums and Tilman Espert on the keyboards, who was replaced by Gérald Marie in 2009. Their first album, Synesteria, released in 2009, falls under the genre of progressive metal. The precise guitar riffs and powerful rhythms are delicately balanced by melodious, sometimes melancholic, vocals. This intriguing combination invites the listener to explore the inner self. The style of this Munich group passed from metal to progressive rock with the release of the EP 25.000 Miles (2011). This EP serves as the basis for the new album Blueprint released in July 2013. The lyrics, in English and French, tell the story of a life and the construction of a man; the vocals are borne on an ambience that is sometimes retro and powerful, sometimes atmospheric, punctuated with arpeggiators.
