Corelia biography
CORELIA are a progressive metal band from San Diego, California, founded by Chris DOWER (guitars) and Clayton PRATT (drums). A few months after the band's formation, Adrian ALPERSTEIN (bass) joined and the line-up was completed in early 2010 with the addition of Ryan DEVLIN (vocals) and Ryan BORRELL (guitars). While completing their line-up, the band released several demos online, which eventually led to the released of their debut EP "Nostalgia" in September 2011.

The band names DREAM THEATER, OPETH and SIKTH among their influences; their style borrows from aspects of 'traditional' progressive metal, such as PAIN OF SALVATION and FATES WARNING which combine with more modern trends in melodic American metalcore.

Corelia Progressive Metal

Review by Starhammer
Prog Reviewer

3 stars One for the future...

It's quite common for newly formed bands to release fully instrumental demos, then vocals are later added if and when they become available. For me this can be a frustrating experience as songs which I had initially enjoyed, (such as Another Won by Dream Theater, or more recently, Cipher by Red Seas Fire) either get ruined by lacklustre lyrics, or the singing itself detracts from the musical intricacies. In this respect Corelia are a breath of fresh air as Ryan Devlin's Gildenlow-esque vocals take their compositions to a whole 'nother level.

They cite Dream Theater and djent pioneers SikTh amongst their influences, and whilst both are easily recognisable from the style of Nostalgia, I personally think Corelia's overall sound is more akin to the likes of BTBAM. The instrumentation is complex but with plenty of breathing space and buckets of catchy riffs, it remains accessible.

The Verdict: Don't think for a minute that just because I consider this to be 'non-essential', that it's not worth checking out! One of my favourite EP releases of 2011.

Thanks to bonnek for the artist addition.
