Teramaze was originally formed during lead guitarist/producer Dean Well’s teenage years. The band put out a couple albums in the early years, but it wasn’t until the release of “Anhedonia” in 2012 that Wells felt the modern version of Teramaze actually began. That third album was met with critical acclaim, as was the follow up of 2014’s “Esoteric Symbolism”, which saw the quartet making a bolder statement and taking no prisoners to flex their musical muscle even further.
Now they have arrived with their cinematic “Her Halo”. Even as the skeletal design of “Her Halo” is glued together by the verse-chorus-verse format, the record possesses a concept. The narrative is wrapped around the subject matter of the ups and downs of dealing with fame, being persona non grata, love triangles, and the thin line between passion and friendship; issues which we all can relate to. Combine those themes around anthem riddled tunes and it's a recipe for a fleshly executed record with a wide appeal, giving “Her Halo” massive potential to reach a broader base of fans; metal heads, straight out proggers who might otherwise like their heavy ear candy in moderation, AOR and melodic rock junkies that want to hear more out of the songs, and of course, the faithful ProgPower crowd, where the blood runs thick amongst that scene.
