Review: Paragon Theorem - Bound By Gravity

Bound By Gravity is a hard rock band from Hartford, Connecticut, USA headed by vocalist Brian Moore. Brian is flanked by lifelong friends Josh Ingraham on the drums and Steve Delesdernier on lead guitar. Filling out the ranks are Dan Field on rhythm guitar and Eric Rosier on bass. Together they use driving riffs, melodic vocals, and soulfully crafted solos to create edgy yet melodic rock that stands the test of time. Their mission is to bring rock and roll back to the forefront of the music scene.

Bound By Gravity is comprised of 11 incredible tracks where they use genres, such as Rock, and Metal. The album opens with groovy composition called Singularity which, in my opinion, is a great choice for the album opener. Starting with the energetic guitars, it brings vibes of rock bands of the past century. The composition is followed by The Bottom - upbeat tune where the band uses such effects as harmonical backing vocals, which make this song much more interesting. The third track, titled just as the album - Bound By Gravity - starts with electric guitar and additionally with drums: this song literally makes us feel the whole mood of the album. Catchy melodies and short but powerful chorus will definitely stay in head for a long time. The 5th song on the record, Combustion, impressed me with its dynamics and the telephone effect in the beginning: this simple trick made this song much more personal and listeners can literally imagine that the singer talks right to them. A.P.B., which is one of my favorites from the album, is an easily memorable song: it starts with rock and bass guitars and then developes in upbeat track which will make you even sing along. Charade, the 8th song on the tracklist, is the one that will definitely make listeners move because of its dynamics. Starting with drums, this song brings me real vibes with the guitar grooves. The acoustically touched in the beginning song Butanna, as well as Marvel, surprises listeners with the contrast of acoustic and rock parts. Reflective and meaningful acoustic ballads The Heist, There and Wanted are the ones that help you to dive deep in thoughts after a hard day, but There is my absolute favorite from the record, because this song is more sensetive and touching in comparison to others.

To sum up, everything in Bound By Gravity comes together in a stream of consciousness style. This is unforgettable journey into the mix of rock music and meaningful lines in one piece.
