Pandemonaeon CD Release Show
Proclaimed by: Pandemonaeon
Proclaimed from: Oakland, California
Oakland based Folk Metal Band Pandemonaeon performs in celebration of their third album, Dangerous Beauty, on Saturday, 12/04, at Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Ave, Alameda, CA 94501. Doors open at 7:30pm, & tickets are available at the door, or pre-sale at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/136058. Cover charge is $15.
The 13-song CD features Middle-Eastern tinged metal/rock ranging from the hard-hitting Eater of Sorrow and Lover’s Pardon to the darkly haunting Hunter and the epic Chalice & Blades. Fronted by Celtic vocalist Sharon Knight, Pandemonaeon blends their driving rock sound with the delicate beauty of folk instruments such as violin, oud, saz, mandocello, flute, and percussion. Their sound has been described as "gothic tribal folk metal, " and "dark tribal fusion with powerful vocals and metal accents."
Joining Sharon and Winter are multi-instrumentalists Tim Rayborn (from Canconier) on harmony vocals, oud, saz, and dumbek; and Gari Hegedus (from Stellamara) on violin and mandocello; Paul Nordin on extreme vocals, Tina “Bean” Blaine (D’Cuckoo, Rhythmix) on percussion, Caith Threefires on bass, and Mark Abbott (Box Set) on drums.
Pandemonaeon creates soundscapes both modern and timeless by combining Middle-Eastern, Scandinavian, and Celtic folk influences with modern rock stylings. At times haunting and stark, at times driving and passionate, the result is deeply evocative. Like the dark underworld of Faery that influences them, one senses that beneath the seductive beauty of their music is a fearsome witch come to slay you with poisoned tongue. More simply put, as one music fan describes them, Pandemonaeon is "music for bellydancers in combat boots." The band's passion for dramatic outfits and black boots will be another feature of the evening with their "Black Boot Brigade" costume contest.
