Ion Dissonance biography
ION DISSONANCE was formed in 2001 in Montreal,Quebec by Antoine Lussier (guitars) and Sebastien Chaput (guitars),and play an interesting blend of progressive metal,math metal and metalcore.The line-up was soon completed with the addition of JF Richard (drums) ,Sebastien Painchaud (bass) and Gabriel McCaughry (vocals).
The band then recorded and released a promotional demo called ".357" in 2002 and shortly underwent a line-up change when bassist Sebastien Painchaud was replaced by Miguel Valade.Heavy touring as a support act soon followed.
ION DISSONANCE released their first full-length LP "Breathing is Irrelevant" in 2003 and continued to tour well into 2004.Another line-up change followed,with Miguel Valade being replaced by current bassist Xavier St-Laurent.They began recording their second album "Solace",which was released in 2005.
2006 saw vocalist Gabriel McCaughry leave the band for various reasons and he was replaced by Kevin McCaughey of the band SHAOLIN.
Often compared to bands like THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and MESHUGGAH,ION DISSONANCE are known for their technical riffs which are played one over another, groove-like drum patterns and a heavy atmosphere.
Highly recommended to all fans of heavy,extreme and complex progressive metal.

Review by shentile

5 stars Brilliant prog-math/grind album. Brutality technicality and extreme dissonance as the title suggests. Solace is the coupe de gras of Ion Dissonance material. Just listen to the first two tracks and you will get a good idea of the album. Relentless and devastating.

Minus the Herd
Ion Dissonance Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by shentile

4 stars VERRRRRRY different style of metal than their previous two albums. On Minus The Heard Ion Dissonance gave up the math/grind aspect and made more of a brutal metalcore album. I for one was very shocked and slightly disappointed but as far as metalcore albums go it is very well done. So 4 stars. A change of pace but still just as good in another genre.

Review by shentile

4 stars Bruuuuuutal band. Not necessarily what most would consider prog. But regardless they play a very technical style of math/grind with heavy metalcore mixed in. If you appreciate extreme metal then at least give this a shot. For fans of Dillinger Escape Plan.

Review by Moatilliatta
Prog Reviewer

2 stars Ion Dissonance is another one of those technical, relentless metal/core bands. Like the rest of them, these guys can play, but they can't write. I can't get past one of these songs without the desire to switch records. It's obnoxious, tiresome music. There is not one riff, phrase, vocal line (it's a bunch of yelling as is typical of the genre's lower tier) that sticks with me. I love pedantic music; I can even love heavy music. This however is not something I can get into, and I don't see how many other people can enjoy this. The technicality is the only aspect that gets any consideration in their writing. That is not nearly enough to make a good record. For the time being, I'll give it two stars, because it is better than most standard metal and hardcore acts.
