Empyrean

Warangelic A great mix of melodic death metal, Kreator-sound thrash metal, and progressive metal. Favorite track: The Immortal Generation.
Jon Bangsund

Jon Bangsund Yes, this is a slow burn, but when you get it, it’s like being shot with a diamond. Simply put, one of the best prog-thrash albums in a long time. Obvious inspirations are Megadeth, Metallica, Vektor and Death. There’s something for everyone in this: all out thrashers like Critical Mass and phenomenally built up tracks like the monster Edge of the Horizon
Mark Arruda

Mark Arruda Great progressive thrash/death metal. A mix between Vektor meets Death. This band is very talented musicians and the songs are well written, it was hard to pick one song Favorite track: Intelligence Explosion.
SkunkBeatManiac

SkunkBeatManiac Superb Modern Thrash album that rivals opuses of legendary thrashers, especially German folks, such as Accuser, Kreator, Paradox and Sacrifice who were all playing catchy, dynamic and fast songs. The vocal tone is close to Black Metal growl and somehow reminded me of Jon Nödtveidt on Reinkaos.

about

Formed in 2007, Paranorm is a progressive thrash/black/death metal band based in Uppsala, Sweden. In 2011, Paranorm went into the studio with producer Nino Vukovic and released their first EP, titled 'Pandemonium's Rise'. After promoting the record on various stages in Sweden, the band started work on a follow-up recording. The next release, a four-track EP titled 'The Edge of Existence', produced once again by Vukovic, was released in 2014.

With a line-up change in 2018, Paranorm recruited powerhouse drummer Samuel Karlstrand of Wretched Fate. Meanwhile, work was ongoing for their most ambitious project to date: a full-length album titled 'Empyrean'. This time around, Paranorm sought out the talents of producer Lars Hultman, and the album was recorded between 2019-2020. Redefining Darkness is proud to unleash the band's most accomplished work to date this Feb, 2021!
