Pareidolon biography
Pareidolon (par-eye-doll-on) was formed in September 2015 by bassist/guitarist/songwriter/producer/bandleader Lachlan TOCHER for a one-off graduation showcase recital in music college, featuring six other classmates/friends - Ashley PEARCE and Branden GREEN on guitars, Anna BACKUS on keys, Brittany KELLER and Jonathan KWAK on vocals, and Aybars SAVAT on drums. The group used the free time in between final exams to record the material in the studio with all volunteer participants and a little over a year later their debut album "Aporķa" was released. They draw their influences from classic prog bands like Camel, Marillion and Genesis as well as newer acts such as Steven Wilson, Anathema, Riverside and more. Despite the temporary situation that led to their formation, work on the second album is already underway and all band members are expected to return.

Pareidolon Crossover Prog

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

4 stars This group took me by surprise.

Appearing out of Canada in late 2016, Pareidolon unleashed their debut album on Bandcamp in January of 2107. It immediately catches my attention with it's complex but tight compositions, which use a wide range of musical colors.

From the opening dissonant chord in "Abducted!" which turns into a powerful rocker, into the airy moodiness of "The Tunnel", and all the way through to the heavy epic, "Behind The Glass", Pareidolon successfully uses their dual male and female vocalists and their exceptional instrumentalists (all graduates of Selkirk College's Contemporary Music and Technology program) to produce a masterful blend of progressive styles, with a sound of their own and a nod to the past.

I hear nods to classics like Camel and the like, as well as hints of later Opeth and Haken.

This might be one to look for in the list of top albums of the year.

Thanks to evolver for the artist addition.
