San Diego based rock trio QUOR are back with a deluxe release that includes their debut Ep, 'We Are Going To Be Awesome' as well as their latest recording, 'Human Paradigm'. Brian Corn – Guitar & Vocals, Doug Smith- Bass & VocalsJohn Michael Cordes- Percussion. The vocals, guitars, and percussive elements combine effectively to emphasize a contrast between intricate melody and distorted screams of raw energy and emotion. Brian Corn's distinctive vocals, the hard rock stylings over a heavy metal base, and a supremely unhealthy dose of vitriol make this the perfect album to bang your head to. The songs on both 'Human Paradigm' and 'We Are Going To Be Awesome constantly shift, morph and transform themselves, sometimes raging with fury, sometimes settling into relaxed interludes that still boil with a dark menace.
Highlights include: " Silence And The Spark", "Human Paradigm", the song was recorded in one weekend at Swagger Studios in Los Angeles, CA with engineer Dan Whittemore. "Guardian", "The Fragile Break" and the melodic, "Paradise". The deluxe set is just amazing. Complex, driving, and unlike anything else out there. I was captivated with this recording as soon as I popped it in and pressed play and have been coming back to it again and again. 'Human Paradigm' is not for the faint of heart or someone just looking to ease back on the tunes. It is a deep thought-provoking recording. It is definitely something that needs multiple listens to fully absorb it's gravity but definitely worth the time. - Highly Recommended
