Epic Mind - Through the Labyrinth (full album)
Dutch progressive metal band Epic Mind was formed in 2008 by Raoul Van Oosten (guitars) and Nathaniël Sonneveld (bass) after terminating the band Serendipity, with Folkert van Blom (drums) and Leon Vonk (vocals) joining in 2009 and 2012, respectively. The band focused on playing live and, in 2014, reached the semi-finals of the Metal Battle. At that time focus was shifted towards writing songs, and the recording process for the debut album was started early 2015. During the final stages of recording, in 2016, co-founder Nathaniël Sonneveld passed the torch as a bass player to Jari Stoppelenburg. In February 2017, Epic Mind released their debut album Through the Labyrinth under own management.
With 8 hard-hitting songs including a 20-minute epos, Epic Mind successfully delivers the full progressive metal-package: heavy guitar riffs, catchy bass lines, thumping drum patterns, versatile vocals and a touch of keyboards. The songs vary from delicate to intense, with technical and mind-blowing riffs along the way.
A must-hear for fans of bands like Dream Theater, Threshold, Ayreon and Pain of Salvation.
