Quo Vadis (CAN)

The year 2004 brings a new chapter to the history of QUO VADIS. The long awaited follow-up "Defiant Imagination" to the albums Day Into Night (2000)and Forever... (1996) demonstrates mature songwriting by a band constantly pushing the limits. Just as with the release of previous albums, both ofwhich have been critically acclaimed , nominated as "Best new Canadian Talent" by the 2001 Canadian Music Network Awards, QUO VADIS refused tosimply clone the sounds and ideas that brought previous efforts their recognition.

The year 2004 brings a new chapter to the history of QUO VADIS. The long awaited follow-up "Defiant Imagination" to the albums Day Into Night (2000)and Forever... (1996) demonstrates mature songwriting by a band constantly pushing the limits. Just as with the release of previous albums, both ofwhich have been critically acclaimed , nominated as "Best new Canadian Talent" by the 2001 Canadian Music Network Awards, QUO VADIS refused tosimply clone the sounds and ideas that brought previous efforts their recognition. Instead their new offering, like it's predecessors, is an evolution, a stepforward and a challenge to the status quo. Musically, the album will impress both the fans of Death and Prog metal.The band manages to balance odd time signatures and tempo changes with anexceptional sense of melody and power - an equilibrium achievable only by the combination of Frydrychowicz and Bercier's playing styles. DiGiorgio'sfretless meanderings compliment the rhythm section with counter melodies not heard since DEATH's Individual Thought Patterns. Imposing vocals, solos,as well as the tasteful use of piano, cellos and choirs complete the offering for an unforgettable experience. This uncompromising attitude has pushed QUO VADIS to part ways with long time members, Arie Itman and Remy Beauchamp, and to enlist a full timevocalist Stephane Par, as well as Steve DiGiorgio, Roxanne Constantin and William Seghers to complete the album lineup. Mixed and mastered atMorrisound Studios in Tampa Florida by Jim Morris this album will be unlike any other release of 2004. LIVE PERFORMANCES With a new live lineup QUO VADIS has criss-crossed the eastern and central Canada in the 5 months prior to the November album release, playing soldout shows and covering close to 10,000 km. The band had the honor of headlining such events as Night One of Trois Rivieres Metalfest IV alongside suchlegends as Cryptopsy (Night Two) with direct support from Misery Index as well as headlining the Rouyn Open Air in July.
