Album review: ‘The Only Thing’ by perseide.

PERSEIDE was born from four childhood friends who decided to form a rock band in 2001, as they were just teenagers. Ten years later, they were crossing the frontiers to share their music widely.

After two EP’s released, a signing to Orange Rock label, hundreds of gigs across France, Europe and even in the USA, with bands like Soilwork, Betraying The Martyrs, Cancer Bats, We Butter The Bread With Butter, Protest The Hero… The story is still being written today.

In 2018, they decided to go into the studio again to record their debut album, which is going to be released early 2020. This album is going to be called: ‘The only thing’ and is a perfect mixup from heavy rock, all the way to danceable tunes. A perfect recepy for fans of the heavier genres, but also for fans of the softer rock genres there’s plenty of great time worked into this album.

The album starts off with a nice guitar piece and when the drums fall in, you reckognize imediately that it’s going to be a bit of an heavier album.

It will also be undoubtly that you’re not going to be able to sit still and the great balance between straight forward music and breakdowns are the cause of this. Add a great piece of guitar work in it and you have the perfect recepy for an opening track of your album.

Throughout the entire album, you shall notice that not all songs have had the same influences. That you will notice when track two starts playing. A totally new singing-line will make you spontaneously start headbanging again, thanks to a great balance between rock vocals and an alternative rap sound.

‘The Only Thing’ tells you a story that shall take you with him through it and the mix of different instruments and influences make this album complete and therefor verry attractive cause it will be able to speak to a broader public and that alone is something that makes the maker a true artist.
