PaRaLLaXe biography
PaRaLLaXe history starts in 2000 when the four musicians Béa Amani (bass), Nicolas Barzacchini(drums), Alex Andrini (Guitars) and Matthieu Huck (keyboards) meet each other . They soon began rehearsals and some pieces like Y2K or In extremis were born. After Nicolas's departure in March 2001, the band welcomes Bruno Felloneau (ex-STYLL) on the drums.


From then PaRaLLaXe begin their process of creation and dedicate themselves to the elaboration of a six-track demo. The four musicians share the same vision of music, and naturally direct their compositions to an instrumental and progressive style.
The first scenes take place at the same time as it does in various places in Bordeaux : Arema, Forum Music, L'Estran. In October 2003 and for the first time, the band played on a parisian stage, L'Alternat sharing their performance with the groups Conscience, Innerchaos and The theOutburst.


From that time, PaRaLLaXe has alternated composition and performance. The audience always gives them a lot of support. In Mai 2004, they were invited at the Eclipse festival and played with ANATHEMA as guests. In 2005, while they were recording their first album, they were performing at Barbey in Bordeaux (first part of Epica)


The first album recording ended in early 2006. It has an explicit concept : the link between Music and Image. The album title is "Soundtrack" and it contains 4 pieces which call up film music or video games music. The opus are more developped and are still instrumental. Some pieces use a symphonic orchestra.

3 stars Second album of Parallaxe from 2007 named Soundtrack is in same direction as previous one, same instrumental progressive metal meets jazz fusion parts, the result is ok, the musicianship is great, but again something is lacking in overall sound. Complicated passages, with twists and turns, good druming, top notch guitar playing, and that's it. The album is divided in 3 parts, opening track being first, and then to long tracks, the second Sacre being hte best, 20 minutes of pure bliss, sometimes thay are great in arrangements, sometimes are only ok. This is as good as their first opus, no better no worse. 3 stars again, maybe 3.5 in places. Both albums worth to be investigated , being in same cathegory as LTE or Planet X, but I prefere these two bands more then Parallaxe.

3 stars Parallaxe from France is a progressive jazz fusion metal band with 2 albums released so far. This band as many from that period and after embrace this style of music after the groundbreaking succes of LTE 1 and 2. Even thy had a style of their own Parallaxe are style quite influnce by bands from this realm. First album issued in 2003 self titled is a good example of complex and complicated pieces, all 6 tracks are good for sure, but overall something is missing, is to much wankary for my taste. The album is all instrumental, the musicians for sure know to handle the instruments very well, but is not enough. Excellent is the guitar parts, Alex Andrini manage to create some spectacular moments, remind me of LTE or other guitarists from this type of music. So, all in all a fairly decent album, with good compositions, but is not a masterpice, at least for my ears. 3 stars

Review by Pumpkin King

5 stars To make a successful instrumental album, it will need to have great musicianship throughout. Soundtrack is one of the best and most complex progressive albums I have ever heard, and it certainly qualifies as a masterpiece. And yes, this group is good enough to be mentioned with the super group known as Liquid Tension Experiment. It is a fantastic effort by the entire band.

There are just so many good things about this album. Throughout the album you will hear many complex and interesting melodies, and sudden transitions into either guitar, keyboard, or bass solos (or a combination between the three). And it will slow down once in a while with Orchestral melodies similar to Symphony X's The Odyssey. Not one member stands out alone, because each player plays in sync with the other (which is very similar to most of Dream Theater's instrumental sections). This is just awesome from start to finish.

I suggest anyone who is a fan of Liquid Tension Experiment, Dream Theater, Shadow Gallery, or Symphony X to check out this album. Trust me, you will be impressed.

4 stars After the two grounbreaking releases by LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT many rock/metal bands have chosen the same path of the instrumental prog metal category...PARALLAXE could be considered as a band that belongs in the same wave as their very good eponymous debut is heavily influenced by the works of LTE...But this time some things go far away from that...

The album starts with the excellent ''Acousmatique'' which opens with some keyboard electronic music and heavy guitars after that,it continues with tremendous bass lines by the middle of the track and finishes with a jazz inpired section...What a great start!''Paradoxe'' is an instrumental rather speed track which comes as a cross between DREAM THEATER and technical FATES WARNING!''In Extremis'' is a very original track,mellow for most of its time,with some themes that bring movie soundtracks to mind...Very nice...''Y2K'' is the most LTE influenced track,a very good one,which easily could be part of a LTE album...''BWV Fantaise'' comes next,it goes in the same vein as ''Y2K'' but this time the band shows his classical music admiration with the superb ending section!And last but not least ''Indian'',the epic of the album,which contains all the above mentioned ingredients,heavy influences by LTE's complexity,jazz sections,pure metal,effects,soundtrack-like themes and symphonic passages!

I was really surprised with this album as PARALLAXE are an unknown bans for me...But I assure that you will have to deal with some stunning yet half-original musicianship here...I'll spread their name undoubtfully,you should too...Check them' out...This guys gain 4 stars from me!

Review by O.d.d

5 stars "Soundtrack" is the greatest progressive instrumental album which i ever heard since LTE and Planet X (Moonbabies)...

This album contains 4 titles (Freak Circus, Sacre, Game Over & Origin), with 2 long pieces Sacre (19:48) and Orgine (21:30) (separated in several parts) with an orchestration like Symphony X and touch of musics inspired by films. It is clean, beautiful, technical and melodic.

A great great thanks to this group who deserves to enter the circle of the big !!
