Today Permafrost have found a band that offers acoustic folk prog with a twist from German band Deafening Opera. The band define their music as, «handmade acoustic prog influenced by folk and jazz».
Deafening Opera were formed in Munich in 2005 by lead singer Adrian Daleore, guitarists Moritz Kunkel and Thomas Moser, and bassist Christian Eckstein, and joined by Konrad Gonschorek on drums and Tilman Espert on the keyboards, who was replaced by Gérald Marie in 2009.
They have released their first album in 2009, Synesteria, which was showing the progressive metal side of the band. Then the band moved to a progressive rock style with their EP 25,000 miles in 2011.
The big riffs in their music contrast some delicate melody parts and the different types of tone voices make this band even more interesting for a progressive rock listener. We can hear a definitive influence from some hard rock bands of the past, also Faith No More and Echolyn.
