Broken Bonds is a melodic combination of progressive metal and electronic influences. It was started as a passion project of Seattle-born guitarist and composer Josh Brown, who’s been fortunate enough to collaborate with artists Thread the Sky and Event Horizon.
The atmospheres and textures invoke the vastness of the universe while the lyrics reflect power struggles and the path to self-acceptance. The contrasting elements paint a picture of how adversity and mortality bring us closer together.
“Gravity” is the first release by Broken Bonds, an independent progressive metal project that was started by guitarist Josh Brown. The album represents the culmination of over a year of work, with all of the instrumental composition and recording being done by Brown. The song “Cognitive Dissonance” features vocals and lyrics by local Pierce County, WA vocalist Stephan Dominguez. It has a style firmly planted in progressive metal, but crosses over predominantly with electronic music. “Gravity” can be downloaded from most online streaming and music services.
