“Groovy, technical & melodic, yet hard-hitting as a fist to the face at the same time.”
This would be a good way to describe the music of Dutch progressive metal band Transient State. The band’s sound is comprised of the songwriting & guitar playing of Bram Heijs and Jeoffrey Warmerdam’s diverse vocal approach. Added to these elements are the rhythmic sensibilities of Nico de Wit on drums and the added guitar wizardry of Matthijs Vliegenthart to create a complex yet engaging sound.
Check out this video to hear what the band is all about:
Their music, characterized by heavy down-tuned guitar riffs, complex grooves, and catchy choruses, is molded into compact and action packed songs that can please both the lovers of heavy metal as well as those that like their intensity with a challenge. The band is inspired by progressive metal acts such as Periphery, Monuments, Humanity’s Last Breath & Textures.
Transient State inked a deal with Layered Reality Productions this weekend and both parties are very excited about this indeed! As the label is ever expanding and looking for musical talent in the progressive musical hemisphere, both the band and label deemed this to be a perfect fit!
Last year the band launched their debut-album “Rearranged” to critical acclaim and they performed a slew of gigs in 2017 with the opening of the Complexity festival as one of the highlights showcasing a technically proficient & energetic show to the masses.
The band is now working on new material which will be released by Layered Reality Productions in the future.
