“There's limitless potential in a band this talented, if you ask me. They sound to my ears like a Jon Anderson-less Yes, covering Cynic's unreleased material (if any) while secretly worshipping the likes of Dream Theater.“ – musicemissions.com
One of the key members of the “djent metal” community are back!. “Irradiance” is the fifth release from this instrumental band. Djent metal is a relatively new sub-genre of progressive metal characterized by a certain type of palm muted guitar tone. Often attributed to Meshuggah, djent bands like Animals As Leaders, Scale The Summit, and Behold The Arctopus have a hardcore following of musicians and fans of progressive metal. Canvas Solaris is firmly ensconced in this field.
The band has evolved dramatically from their beginnings as a death metal/mathcore band. Over time the band has assimilated progressive rock into their sound, balancing hyper-technical passages with dreamy, textured soundscapes.
The band is always interested in presenting their work with interesting graphics. They are honored to have noted low brow artist Mars-1 provide the cover art. Once again the album was produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried and Me) and mastered by Alan Douches.
