Topic: A TORN MIND (Prog Rock/Metal) - DEBUT EP OUT NOW
Posted By: Titan
Subject: A TORN MIND (Prog Rock/Metal) - DEBUT EP OUT NOW
Date Posted: 12 Jul 2010 at 12:27pm

Scottish prog rock band A TORN MIND have announced the release of their debut EP 'Barriers'. Self-recorded and produced, the EP serves as a striking introduction to their brand of modern, melodic rock.

A Torn Mind's sound is fresh and powerful, with a strong contemporary progressive edge and the five tracks that make up 'Barriers' weave their way through an array of powerful riffs and expansive, off-kilter song structures combined with bold harmony vocals. The quartet display a musical maturity beyond their years, delivering a diverse and dynamic debut effort that draws influence from acts including Dream Theater, The Mars Volta, Karnivool and Thrice.

On the task of self-recording and mixing the EP, singer/guitarist Grant Kilpatrick states; "Producing the EP ourselves is something that happened quite naturally. As we began thinking about recording our first release, everyone was happy to just give it a bash and dive head first into the project. It was very much a team effort!" Despite the task of overseeing their EP's creation at every stage, Grant says that he feels it was worth the effort; "It was a pretty intense process, with most of the tracking and mixing being done at night or at weekends in our spare time, but it has been rewarding and we've gained a lot from the whole process."

'Barriers' is available digitally from most major download stores including iTunes, as well as physically, direct from the A Torn Mind online merch store - -
