Relative Awareness is a Prog/Math Modern Metal project fronted and founded by Jelle Hamstra, who is known for his earlier drumwork in Insidiae, Dimaeon & Despondency as well as his current bands Synovectomy & Alice Day. This project is Jelle’s outlet for his Progressive and Technical heavy ideas that he could not fit in other bands up to this point.
Jelle has written a full concept-album worth of music that will be featuring a rough metallic edge as well as amn intricate proggy side that should not be taken lightly. Besides his Drumwork, Jelle will also take on guitar and vocal duties on this album. He is aided by Janneke Smids on Synths (Ex-Insidiae, Ex-Alice Day) and Jean-Luc Nealon on Bass. (Ex-Insidiae) The project will be expanded with more musicians as the writing and recording proces develops itself.
