Shumaun is set to unveil their 4th album, titled “Opposing Mirrors,” tomorrow (June 28th) showcasing a stellar lineup of drummers including the return of Thomas Lang and Leo Margarit of Pain of Salvation, alongside Marco Minnemann from the instrumental power trio, The Aristocrats, but you can listen to the entire record one day in advance, via our exclusive premiere, below.

“I believe the album is best experienced when played in sequence. While not a traditional concept album, it maintains a thematic coherence, much like our previous releases. The goal is to immerse the listener in a musical journey lasting approximately 50 minutes, give or take, haha. While there are standout singles, we’ve also included longer tracks to allow for deeper exploration. Ultimately, my hope is for the honesty and integrity of the music to connect with the listener, however, they choose to experience it.” says Shumaun mastermind Farhad Hossain.

Shumaun, initially a solo project by Farhad Hossain, evolved into a collaborative band after recruiting friends. Despite drummer challenges during recording, including the departure of Tanvir Tomal, replaced by Waqar Khan, the band managed to release their self-titled debut album in 2015 with contributions from Travis Orbin (Darkest Hour) and Mark Zonder (ex-Fates Warning) on drums.

Tanvir later rejoined as the live drummer. In 2019, their second album “One Day Closer to Yesterday” was released, followed by their critically acclaimed third album “Memories & Intuition” in 2021, which featured renowned drummers, Thomas Lang, Atma Anur, Mark Zonder, and Leo Margarit. Praised by numerous prominent progressive, hard rock, and heavy metal outlets such as PROG, Revolver, Decibel, Metal Asylum, and Progressive Music Planet, the band’s distinctive sound, propelled by Farhad Hossain’s dynamic vocals and lead guitar work, Jose Mora’s melodious bass lines, and Tyler Kim’s nuanced guitar embellishments, has earned them accolades, awards, and widespread recognition.
