EchoSoul is a Progressive Metal Band from Indiana, formed in 2019, formerly Apparition, made up of a collaboration of known and newer artists founded by guitarist and songwriter Guy Hinton.
The great part of this project was the wide range of musicians chosen to collaborate with to bring the fully rounded sound you’ll hear on the debut release. The album consists of 7 songs and has some ranging from 4 minutes all the way to an epic 11 minutes with longest called “The Hangman”. The great part of this album is the variety. Majority of vocals were performed by Rob Lundgren but Tim “Ripper”Owens sings two killer tracks in a VERY Metal fashion....
The first single “Melody of Misery” is the softest part of the debut album, catchy, and memorable, while Songs like “Alchemist” and “The Hangman” take the listener on a ride through solid chugging and fast and alternate picking, mixed with plenty of scale runs, harmonies and complex type riffing that draw you in. Every song at its core always seems to have a melodic or catchy chorus and some memorable take aways leaving you humming them later in the day. It’s definitely a strong debut. Whether you're a Power Metal fan or into Thrash, there is something for everyone. A perfect fusion of Power and Prog Metal!! The chemistry of the musicians worked so much that they are already looking forward and looking at recording again as well as live shows this summer. A band worth keeping track of.
