Following up with 2017’s EP release “Back Again”, Canadian melodic proggers The Slyde return with their first full length effort titled “Awakening”. The band (formerly known as just Slyde) will drop ten tracks of the intricate, contrapuntal prog rock they’ve honed over the last decade, on May 18 2018.
In true prog fashion, The Slyde stays true to their mission statement with their quirky arrangements, aggressive edge, and ominous lyrics. The result is a thought provoking, high-octane album for fans of Rush, Dream Theater, Haken, Coheed and Cambria, and Megadeth. Driven by Nathan Da Silva’s elegant vocals, Sarah Westbrook’s powering keyboard skills, and the powerful rhythm section of Alberto Campuzano and Brendan Soares, the band are to catch the ears of any technically minded melodic prog rock fan.
The Slyde has played over 170 shows on the Eastern Canadian circuit, sharing the stage with such bands as Protest The Hero, Down With Webster, Pain of Salvation, Fuck The Facts, Dana Fuchs, and Timber Timbre among others, and have made appearances at Ottawa Bluesfest, Canadian Music Week, IndieWeek, and Wacken Metal Battle Canada.
