Entity Paradigm biography
Pakistani act ENTITY PARADIGM, also known as EP, originally started out as two separate bands. As it happened, the band leaders for each was involved as actors in a TV series too, and it was when the director of that show suggested they should write a song as a joint effort for this TV show matters were set in motion. In 2002 they entered a nationwide band contest, and when it nded in 2003 they became runners-up, were signed to the Pepsi label and issued their first full length album Irtiqa. The album became immensely popular, and album and singles alike entered charts in both Pakistan and India. Four years later the band decided to call it a day however, as several members wanted to be involved in other projects at that point.

But onlytwo years later Entity Paradigm returned. A few line-up alterations took place before settling for a second go as a succesfull rock band, but by 2010 these aspects were catered for and they started to work on their second album. A single, Shor Macha, was issued as a teaser for the forthcoming disc. The album itself is still in production as of September 2011.

Review by Marty McFly

3 stars Prog from that part of the world, Pakistan. is a very rare thing. Even I'm not from a small Prog country (Czech Republic has few dozens of Prog bands), I will never experience what it is to be from big P. country (like USA/UK). I have quite a soft spot for these little bands that are trying and have to work against uneven odds.

If only the were doing it a little bit differently. This album has its Prog moments, mostly represented by "oriental" sound, that kind of arabic influences, that are so foreign for Europeans such as myself. That is good, intertwining into songs usually works, because almost nobody does that, so it's still fresh and new. The closest comparison would be Orphaned Land (even they are from the "opposing" side country).

However, what I despise most on "Irtiqa" are nu-metal vocals (with a little bit of hip-hop style, complete with scratching the record) that are featured especially on first few tracks. Also, expect a little bit of metal shredding.

Together, all these elements somehow works though.


Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
