The Parallex Method Is A Hoot


Debut record gets Autumn release

Emerging modern instrumental progsters release their enticing debut ‘The Owl’, through all stores on Friday 11th September.

Danny Beardsley (Guitars), Dave Wright (Drums) and Daniel Hayes (Bass) began their journey towards prog-rock majesty back in 2011 during their tenure in the hard rock band ‘Isolysis’. Unknowingly, this helped the trio lay steady foundations last year for their reunion under their new moniker ‘The Parallax Method’.

Collectively, the Derbyshire three-piece have already amassed nearly thirty years of collective experience, touring the most illustrious rock venues nationwide, as well as grabbing appearances at some of the most prestigious festivals including Download Festival, YNOT Festival, Hammerfest, Hard Rock Hell, Macmillan Fest and the HRH Road Trip Festival in Ibiza. Their previous musical endeavours have also garnered them support from the likes of Scuzz TV, Classic Rock Magazine, Prog Magazine, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Team Rock Radio and Planet Rock.

Pooling from a diverse spread of inspiration, but united by a combined love of modern prog acts such as Tesseract, Karnivool and Periphery, it was all but inevitable that the threesome would start crafting music with this style in mind. However, it would be inaccurate to tag ‘The Parallax Method’ as just a mere Prog band. The band express an instrumental sound that fuses prominent elements of classic rock merged with a genuine interest for song-writing surprises and refreshing melodic overtones.

Conceptually, The Parallax Method lean on the themes of space and a perpetual battle between the owl and the squid to convey their unique sub-genre of modern prog. Space signifies the vast and epic nature of each track. The owl, wise and powerful, manifests itself in the music in its’ confident and strategic build ups. The squid, sneaky and sly, embodies itself in the ever-present surprising twists and turns. And the battle between them often ends in a violent stalemate which serves to betray the band’s humble standard tuning.

The Parallax Method now look to warp the minds of the general public with their debut EP ‘The Owl’, which is unleashed everywhere this September. Stay in tune with the band’s movements at and don’t miss the trio at this year’s Bloodstock Festival and other notable festivals throughout the Summer.
