Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Born out of the forward-thinking inclinations of guitarist/vocalist Josh Kay in late 2017, Alizarin is on a mission to explore unconventional rock music. In addition to Kay, the group consists of Jon Damon on drums, Terran Fernandez on bass guitar, and Avelino Ramirez on keyboard. Alizarin is based in Los Angeles, CA and endeavors to create compelling, dramatic music that defies rock expectations.

“The Last Semblance” is a work of cinematic progressive metal, centered around brooding melodies and wrapped in epic compositions. Unlike their strictly instrumental debut record, this sophomore release features prominent vocals throughout. Rich harmonies and baritone resonance from vocalist Kay’s voice add a new dimension to the music, allowing the band’s sound to expand to truly uncharted territory.

Josh Kay comments: “We are extremely excited and proud to present our new album ‘The Last Semblance’, a record intended to refresh the ears and break a lot of progressive music expectations. We took our brand of cinematic metal that we began on our debut record and expanded upon it in every single way. Rich and dramatic compositions, unorthodox chord progressions, lush vocals and harmonies, and compelling melodies abound on this new release. We wanted to stand out from our peers and offer something that will be immediately memorable and captivating, yet will continue to reveal new layers of depth upon every listen. It’s an honor to premiere this new record with Sonic Perspectives.”

“The Last Semblance” covers a wide spectrum of sonic landscapes and emphasizes the melodic journey over deliberate technique. The compositions on the record focus on a balance of each instrument, with less of an emphasis on the domination of guitar solos and a greater exploration of what each musician is capable of. The album draws influence from such groups as Porcupine Tree, Haken, Alice in Chains, Opeth, Portishead, and many more. The results are a sound that is challenging to define, pensive, and often at the crossroads of melody and dissonance.
