I’ve known Glasgow metalcore outfit Parallel Redemption for a number of years now, and every time I’ve seen them on stage they’ve killed it. But when it comes to their music, they’ve not had the best of luck. Their debut EP, Not Everything Not Yet, received a polarising response, and a big part of that was down to it’s not-so-hot production quality, which didn’t properly reflect the band’s talents.
After going quiet for a while, they have come back with a new single entitled Existence, and I’m happy to say that they have delivered big time with this one.
Aside from the obviously improved production quality, this is a rocking tune with a tight combination of cleans and screams, smashing riffs and a catchy, upbeat melody, as well as great lyrics and a neat breakdown at the 2 minute mark.
At last, music fans are presented with a song that properly represents the talents of one of the city’s most enjoyable up-and-coming bands in the metal scene, and personally I can’t wait to hear what’s next from these guys.
