Hanlon’s Razor was founded when songwriters Frank Maarsen and Louis De Roo decided to start recording the songs they had written over their many years of playing music together.
With the sole intent of documenting their songs, they set out writing, playing, recording and producing. A journey of creativity and discovery, with a wealth of songs and ideas developing in the process.
The two originally met forming the songwriting duo of Netherlands-based prog band, Terranian. Through their lengthy career, Terranian never recorded more than some seminal demo’s before disbanding in 2018. In 2021 Frank Maarsen and Louis De Roo decided they cared about their songs too much to leave them unrecorded, and used the Covid lockdown to start recording their songs in Louis’ home studio. The first six songs out of this effort form the first album: Paradigm. That album contains six songs and all with vocals..
1. Wake (6:14)
2. Paradigm (8:02)
3. Fringe (4:12)
4. Beautiful Fail (6:01)
5. End Of The Line (4:49)
6. Two Shades (11:15)
Total Time 40:33
