Symbyosis

The French band Symbyosis was initially conceived as a solo instrumental project by guitarist Franck Kobolt, under the title Chrysalid. Eventually he was persuaded to record, with the two releases Fluid and Crisis being largely the efforts of Kobolt (playing most of the instruments and programming the drums as well) and vocalist Corrosive Bob, with a few additional studio musicians helping out.

The French band Symbyosis was initially conceived as a solo instrumental project by guitarist Franck Kobolt, under the title Chrysalid. Eventually he was persuaded to record, with the two releases Fluid and Crisis being largely the efforts of Kobolt (playing most of the instruments and programming the drums as well) and vocalist Corrosive Bob, with a few additional studio musicians helping out. Crisis is an adventurous and impressive work, one of the few albums that can truly be labelled progressive death, as it combines the traditional progressive melodies (particularly the Dream Theater-styled keyboard work) with the harsh black/death vocals of Bob and the crunchy technical guitars of Kobolt. The musicianship and arrangements here are varied and in top form -- there's really no one else attempting this kind of sound. Crisis is a highly recommended technical prog/death album.

Since Crisis' release, Bob and Kobolt have been joined by three new members to form a stable lineup. Work is currently underway on a new album. « hide
