OUR MUSIC

PROGRESSIVE METAL

Welcome to your station. In our music you will find all the frequent elements from progressive metal: compass changes, different types of amalgams, drum patterns, improvisations, progressive appearance of instruments, complex bass lines, etc. Our roots could be in Rush, but we are very influenced by Dream Theater, Symphony X and Queensrÿche.

OUR FIRST RELEASE

"The Standing Man, 1st Chapter" is our debut album, released in March 2019, which consists of ten songs arranged according to "the story of an ordinary man who cannot stand the life he leads". The story of any of us, perhaps you are one of the last men/women standing, like David "Dave" Miller. Listen all the songs (the story) here.

THE ALBUM

THE FIRST CHAPTER

"The Standing Man, 1st Chapter" is the first part from a trilogy about a man who will try to leave the matrix and rise to another astral plane. But first, he must fight against the dark shadows that intervene in ordinary life. At the end of the road (as we hope), the protagonist would reach a higher state of consciousness.

"Be careful, Dave. Don't provoke the owners of the system, and don't try to cut the threads of their puppets."

THE TRILOGY

 
“THE STORY OF DAVE MILLER”

Living in a cosmopolitan and competitive metropolis, Dave Miller is a successful whole man; looks healthy: goes to the gym, does sports and has a good income. He’s 30 years old, and works at an office as Sales Department Coordinator, in a transnational corporation in which he has already been expecting seven years for a promotion.

Money isn’t needed, he comes from a wealthy family. However, he prefers not to bother. As he says, “I can get odds and ends by myself”.

Everything seems to be doing well; the young professional on the rise whose success it’s plainly visible, as well as the fact he is strong, clever and good-looking like a few.

But there is a problem, Dave is not at ease.

He has been all that his family wanted; he has been able to be first-class, stylish and civilized; an obedient and model man who follows his father’s footsteps; the great business man of Sally. He looks as the winner should look like, with the looks and the temper of Wall Street men. He dresses fashionable: one-half charisma, one-half metrosexual.

But Dave is not at ease.

If ignorance brings happiness, intelligence along may be synonym of sadness. This isn’t a myth. Dave begins to analyze the hidden meaning of his perfect behavior, as well as the search of success to the eyes of other ones and begins to realize that all what’s worn-out in his character has been for working in the perfect citizen that all look for him. He looks around and sees other ones seeking unceasingly the same thing:


They have gotten to look alike as much among themselves that they no longer stand out like individual and only beings, but like entities that share a same DNA; same fingerprints, and a same way of talking, walking and dressing; basic clones assembled in a same factory of prototypes.

Dave begins to realize he hasn’t had his own way, hasn’t held an opinion and hasn’t raised his hand to say: “I’m different and I look for something else for my life”. Dave has remained silent; therefore, he has been structured and built at will of those who have the power in his system.

Dave will begin to reflect; to look affected by the reality that will fall over him; it’s a burden that he no longer wants. Or he leaves everything now, or he won’t be free from his soul that begins to feel trapped in a circle of pressures and orders that don’t answer to his likings. Dave isn’t free, knows it. And he will have to fight the system that overwhelms him if wants to take control; but it’s a cruel system, because “only losers flee away from their rules”.

That world that puts on everything at his feet is unforgiving when is refused, for which Dave won’t be able to bend his hands once he starts to get his own way. He will have fight to the end, although breaking what he accepted as “do the right thing”; that one so corrupted verbosity of rectitude and excellence.

Nobody escapes easy from them. They alive! Despite being far away and believing being out of danger, Dave will begin to be chased by the shades that handle the threads of his world. But this terryfing tension, you will bear it recently in the second chapter and third of this story.

HISTORY

The band won third place in the national contest to participate in the famous German festival, just behind Tulkas and Jet Jaguar. More than 50 Mexican bands participated that year.

All started when Gerardo put an add on the Internet: “I’m looking for musicians for a progressive rock/metal band”. The add was followed by a link which led into one of his instrumental creations, called Aktinos. Andre (who was looking for job in Mexico) became very interested in the add; he had had experiences singing heavy metal classics in garage bands and high school.

Demo
2016

Gerardo and Andre met in person after a phone call. Ger led Andre to a sound test consisted in karaoking a song by Dream Theater. The result was very satisfactory, Andres was tenor, and reached almost four octaves in addition to presenting himself as a creative writer, so he could take charge of the lyrics and all voices, including its melodies. So, Gerardo would take over the composition and arrangements of every instrument of all the songs.

First Announcement
2016

As they live in different cities, they continued working at a distance through social networks. Ger began to compose the music, and Andre to write a story that would later fit into the lyrics. More than a band, ThyS is the creation by a duo who just -like Steven Spielberg and John Williams– have written and composed a story with music -or music with a story- to give their future fans an artistic piece that will go further beyond music and the literature.
