Progressive metal trio Gyre are slated to release their new album Shared Visions next week. The band have a knack for crafting captivating prog without devolving into overly-technical showboating, instead opting for melody and memorable riffing. Shared Visions was produced by Kevin Antreassian, The Dillinger Escape Plan’s rhythm guitarist during their final years. Get a taste of the album below with one of the standout tracks, “Come to Carry On.”
“The song originated from a groovy, percussive riff Juan [Soaz, guitar] created and grew naturally from there,” vocalist/bassist Ian McCartney tells Decibel. “Lyrically the song is about holding on to ambitions and letting them guide you. It’s an unapologetic plea to keep moving and not let yourself sit idle while becoming stagnant in heart, body and mind.”
Gyre will release Shared Visions on June 15.
