Trope: Combining odd-time signature polyrhythms and heavy guitars…..

Trope - Eleutheromania

Trope is an alternative rock band with progressive elements located in Hollywood, LA. The last day of March the band and Beats Mee Records will relase Trope`s hotly anticipated debut album Eleutheromania.

‘Eleutheromania features tracks combining odd-time signature polyrhythms, heavy guitars and delicate to angst-ridden vocals, fronted by vocalist Diana Studenberg who gives the band their recognizable sound. Trope have concocted an intoxicating and distinct style that fuses both progressive rock and alternative rock genres in a quite unique way.

 Trope caught the attention of music industry veterans Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) who engineered the album, David Bottrill (Peter Gabriel, Tool) who mixed and creative consulted, and Ted Jensen (Halestorm, Stone Temple Pilots) who put the finishing touches on the record by mastering.

 Diana Studenberg discloses «My love for music has always been like a life vest for me in a sea of uncertainty. I think most, if not all, people have tumultuous scenarios in their life that impact them at different levels based on so many factors. And some people have more or varying tools on how to deal with those things. My tool is artistic expression and it’s driven me to want to create something long lasting that I could be proud of».

 Trope have released singles Lambs, a cover of the Tears for Fears classic, Shout, and Pareidolia. They’ve performed at LA’s Whisky A Go Go, The Viper Room, and the Hollywood Improv and played the main stages twice at Summerfest in Wisconsin. They were invited on an 18-date European tour across 7 countries, including 11 dates in the UK alone with Kings X, which has been postponed, and were invited to open up for The Cult in Reno, Nevada, among other high profile shows.

 Eleutheromania is an album of contrasts: at once polyrhythmic and bombastic, while maintaining lush melodies. This is a band that puts music first. The album has both a 90s alternative rock influence and also a progressive influence that explores new ground. The constant time-signature changes are seamless, really pointing to the musical and song writing proficiency of the band who focus more on groove and feel than math but have done the math all the same. Trope are currently managed by World Entertainment Inc who manage Kings X, Dave Lombardo, Morbid Angel and others.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5848 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.
