INTRODUCING PARALLAX New single and video "Esoteric" premieres July 30th
Full length album, Awaken out now!
Descend into evil and madness with the newest release from Wichita's PARALLAX. Awaken tells the disturbingly intriguing story of a protagonist finding himself infected with a demonic parasite that brings about the total destruction of planet Earth.
Provoking comparisons to bands such as Mastodon and Whitechapel, PARALLAX combines the traditional Heavy Metal and Hardcore genres with newer technological and cyber elements of Nu-Metal and Tech Death. Awaken is brimming with atmospheric elements that evoke phantasmagorical storylines from a post-apocalyptic, Orwellian world. The album takes its listeners on a deep dive into a multilayered sonic landscape encompassing the band's multitude of influences and yields a captivating and fully original experience. Excellent breakdowns, lots of chugging, spidery bass lines and extremely tight, aggressive drumming make this album easy to add to any playlist.
Awaken was self produced, recorded & mixed by guitarist Jason Catlett & PARALLAX at Magnitude Creative Recording Studio in Wichita, KS while mastering duties were handled by legendary mastering engineer, Alan Douches at West Studios in NY. Alan is known for his work with the bands Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Converge & Mastodon.
While Awaken was made available on all digital music platforms on February 19, 2021 via Fine Swine Records; PARALLAX will officially release the second single and music video for the track “Esoteric” on July 30, 2021.

"PARALLAX blows the doors right off with their new album Awaken. This shit’s heavy as fuck, and it switches things up enough to keep you hooked, too. You get big helpings of sludge-y chugs, airtight drumming and screams that are *chef’s kiss* bellísimo. If you love breakdowns, this album’s a bargain." -The Heartland Attack
