Prog Metal Single: The Unravelling - Master Drone
Release: July 8, 2015

Check out all their music

The Unravelling is back with a dark new single - Master Drone. The progressive metal duo got high praise for 13 Arcane Hymns, their debut album but the project was sidelined in 2011 when lead vocalist Steve Moore was diagnosed with cancer. But after a bout of treatment and recovery, he's back together with co-founder and instrumentalist, Gustavo De Beauville and raring to record.

You may be a Master Drone
But you're still under control
You may be a Master Drone
But you're still under...

This is the second single for the Calgary-based duo after their reunion. The first, Revolt, garnered them media attention and over 20K followers on their Facebook page in just two months. Moore has this to say about the new song,

"The Master Drone is certain of his reality, and therefore living through an artifact. He is opinionated, and likely a respectable, ambitious member of society. He could be a motivational speaker, an atheist, a religious leader, a 'life coach' or a serial entrepreneur. He thrives within identity and strives for new identities as he grows old. He's in all of us. He represents our human programming."

The song takes a stark approach that adds to the atmospheric qualities - ethereal, dark and delightful. Moore's strong vocals are doubled in some sections. He's a gutsy screamer with an unforced sound, like it was his natural mode of expression - but still capable of expressing the angst. The vocals force themselves between an insistent, staccato pattern that weights the rhythm section and soaring guitar lines.

It's an enjoyable diversion to the dark side.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
