Gemini Syndrom: Meticulously crafted song after song….

Gemini Syndrom - IDK

LA alternative metal band Gemini Syndrome have just released their new track and music video for IDK today via Another Century.

«IDK plays with the double entendre, I decay and IDK (I don’t know) to illustrate the Voltaire quote, The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing», states Gemini Syndrome vocalist Aaron Nordstromabout the newest release.

Gemini Syndrome drummer Brian Steele Medina adds, «IDK opens the door to the idea that we have to be willing to discard our old ideas and identity to give space for new ideas to grow and allow a more evolved identity to flourish. The last thing we want to do is to get stuck in old patterns of thought and behavior. This is an essential principal as we progress through the various degrees of the initiatory traditions».

Gemini Syndrom spent the better part of 2018-2019 writing the final installment of their long planned three album trilogy. They retreated to drummer Brian Steele Medina’s Las Vegas home studio, where they meticulously crafted song after song, relentlessly reworking and rearranging the musical arrangements until they were fully satisfied. After an exhaustive writing process, Gemini Syndrom relocated to Good Sounds Studio in Tempe AZ, where producer Matt Good would help realize the collection of songs.

Medina recalls, «We absolutely loved working with Matt and he completely understood where we wanted to take this album creatively and what it was going to take to bring the third chapter of this trilogy to light. Our actual collective blood, sweat and tears went into its creation».

 IDK follows the release of Reintegration and is the band’s first new music since the release of their sophomore album Memento Mori (2016), which hit #1 on Billboard Heatseakers Chart and spawned five singles: Eternity, Anonymous, Alive Inside, Sorry Not Sorry, and Remember We Die.

Gemini Syndrome releases the music video for their single Reintegration r via Another Century and the music video is directed by Brian Cox (Bring Me The Horizon, The Used, Starset).

«Our video for Reintegration tells the story of an initiate’s journey as he travels through the various stages of initiation», states Gemini Syndrome vocalist Aaron Nordstrom about the video. «We follow him as he walks away from his past in an effort to find himself by facing and overcoming various trials and tribulations, until he ultimately ascends to the highest version of himself».

Brian Steele Medina, Gemini Syndrome’s drummer, adds, «We worked with director Brian Cox again, who is a good friend and a visionary artist, who also happens to be stuck in UK due to quarantine restrictions. These unique times forced us to get creative. Between shooting the live band shots in the US, animations done in Portugal, rendered in Russia, and edited in UK, this ended up being a worldwide collaboration».

«The video for Reintegration allowed me to re-connect with my inner layers, distortions and glitches, reestablishing my continued search of artistic clarity», states director Brian Cox. 2020 has been a force to allow us to think outside of the box. Directed all the way from my studio in England, band performance shot on location in the US, animations created in Portugal… this video truly is a worldwide collaboration».

 Gemini Syndrome is Aaron Nordstrom (vocals, keyboards), Brian Steele Medina (drums, programming), Alessandro AP Paveri (bass), Meegs Rascon (guitar), and Nicholas Paul Arnold (touring guitar).

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6715 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
