Playgrounded: Construct a brooding world of dark magnificence.

Playgrounded - The Death Of Death

On their new album The Death Of Death, Playgrounded analyses and take apart their surroundings, reducing reality to its smallest components, subsequently converting them into sound to create a new platform – a representation of reality from which they build their artistic vision. Much of the old town district of Chania was developed around its harbor, which was built by the Venetians during the 14th century. Seven hundred years later Playgrounded was formed in Chania, Greece in 2007,

In essence The Death Of Death is dialectical, a study of unity in opposition. A disclosure of contradictory aspects of reality, an expression of their mutual relationship. From these contradictions the band manages to construct a brooding world of dark magnificence.

The Death Of Death has the appeal of a film score that slowly starts to haunt you as the movie progresses. The more you listen to it, the more its sublime beauty becomes apparent.

Playgrounded is a heavy prog band based in Rotterdam, NL and Athens, GR. Alternative metal and contemporary electronic elements form a genre defying sound that has been compared to artists as diverse as Deftones and Massive Attack, Karnivool, The Ocean and Moderat.

The 2017 release of Playgrounded`s first full length album In Time With Gravity united representatives of the rock press throughout Europe in critical acclaim. The tour that followed in major Dutch and Greek cities culminated in an invitation for the band to close the Nine Inch Nails show in Amsterdam’s AFAS Live arena. They have also shared the stage with artists such as Anathema and Riverside.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6832 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.
