Shumaun - 'A Planetary Shift' (Chris DeChiara drum playthrough)

Οι Shumaun δημιουργήθηκαν από τον Farhad Hossain (ex-Iris Divine) αρχικά ως solo project. Γρήγορα όμως μετεξελίχθηκαν σε κανονικό συγκρότημα. Prog metal μπάντα, η οποία μας παρουσιάζεται κάπως έτσι:

«Hard rock for people who love the sounds of intricate rhythm sections, progressive inspired guitars, colorful synths and melodic vocals.»

Το 2015 κυκλοφόρησε το ομότιτλο ντεμπούτο της. Μετά από τρία χρόνια ο δίσκος "One Day Closer to Yesterday" με τον τρίτο να "βγαίνει" στα μέσα του περασμένου Σεπτέμβρη υπό τον τίτλο "Memories & Intuition". Στο album συμμετέχουν πέντε (session) drummers. Μεταξύ αυτών και ο Mark Zonder (σε δύο τραγούδια)!

Στην παρούσα ανάρτηση θα παρακολουθήσουμε βίντεο με τον Chris DeChiara να αποδίδει μετα τύμπανά του την μπαλάντα "A Planetary Shift"...

Ο δίσκος των Shumaun "Memories & Intuition"
Bio: «Shumaun initially started as a solo project by Farhad Hossain (ex singer / guitarist / keyboardist of Iris Divine). After recording a few demos, he decided to recruit a few friends to help build the project into a full-fledged collaborative band. Through the course of recording their self-titled debut album, Shumaun went through a period of tribulation while securing a drummer.

Original drummer Tanvir Tomal (ex Iris Divine) had to leave for professional obligations in the middle of the recording sessions and was later replaced with Waqar Khan (Entity Paradigm), who is also well known for his work with the platinum-selling Ali Azmat of the EMI recording artist Junoon (one of South Asia's most successful rock bands).

Waqar remained with the band long enough to record a few tracks on the debut record as well as appear live for some of the earlier shows. Travis Orbin (Darkest Hour, Periphery), Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord) recorded the remaining drums on the debut record that was released in the fall of 2015.

Tanvir has since returned to the band as the live drummer. 2019 saw the band releasing their sophomore album "One Day Closer to Yesterday." The album was once again mixed by Brett Caldas-Lima at Tower Studio in France. The album was rawer and heavier, but the melodies and vocals were never compromised.

It includes the bombastic prog metal single “Go.” 2021 sees Shumaun releasing their third album “Memories & Intuition,” which features the amazing drumming of legends such as Thomas Lang (Peter Gabriel, Paul Gilbert), Atma Anur (Jason Becker, Tony Macalpine), Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord), and Leo Margarit (Pain of Salvation).

Shumaun once again tapped Brett Caldas-Lima and Tower Studio for mixing and mastering. The album is their most melodic to date and consists of their single "Memories of Water." The Shumaun sound is shaped by the soaring vocals and lead guitar work of Farhad Hossain, the pounding melodic bass lines of Jose Mora and the subtle guitar nuances of Tyler Kim.»
