Biography

This is shared profile
1. Pareidolia is alternative band from Latvia. It was formed in late 2009. The original founders of Pareidolia are guitarist Eugene and vocalist Kessie.

First two songs were recorded in autumn 2010. Not long after that, the band held its first performance at the Cosplay Con 3 in Riga.

Until summer of 2011, Pareidolia managed to participate in such different events. But some members of band disbanded soon after that. Band was reformed in autumn 2011. They started working on new songs, and recorded single “Stolen Life”.

Style of music is vitiating from alternative rock, to hardcore.



2. Pareidolia is music - a collection of strings, horns, guitars, and computers coming together to create a ‘feeling’ more than a song. Even the “band” seems passive compared to the music itself: the musicians and visual accompaniment are substituted frequently to keep the focus on the music itself.

Pareidolia’s first album, “Glow”, features an entire story through the eyes of an anonymous narrator; “lyrics” to the story (though all them have no vocal tracks) are printed in the CD booklet for the listener to interpret. The lyrics simply allow the listener to connect with the material on a different level than the music could alone, and also leave room for the listener to sing their own tune.

Described more as a ‘soundtrack to life’ than an ambiance or experimental record, it is Pareidolia’s unique outlook on how music should be made and heard truly sets them apart.

    By late 2014 singer Daniel Gildenlöw along with songwriter Randy Fitzsimmons will start a progressive metal outfit by the name of Pareidolia. You can now add it to the wiki if you want to. Greetings.
