The US progressive power metal band Mindmaze just released a lyric video for ‘One More Moment’, the second single from their new album “Resolve”. The album will be released on April 28th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.

Over the span of 68 minutes of melodic and powerful music ripe with recurring themes, the band takes the listener on a whirlwind journey through the scope of human emotion in hopes they will be able to project their own experiences into these intensely personal lyrics inspired by an amalgam of real-life events.

“Resolve” reprises the band’s ever-present influences from bands like Queensryche, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden, Savatage, and a mixture of contemporary power metal and melodic rock hooks and songwriting while moving the band further into progressive and theatrical territory with more atypical song structures used to best serve the concept of the album.

mindmaze_2015Check out a lyric video for ‘Dreamwalker’ by MindMaze below. This version of “Dreamwalker” feat. Urban Breed and is available on the brand new “Dreamwalker” EP that you can get straight from the band.

The band recently reported the following: ‘It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that we have parted ways with drummer Kalin Schweizerhof. This has come as a result of some personal differences and we’ve been gradually growing apart for awhile now. We wish Kalin the best of luck with his future endeavors. Don’t worry, though! This will certainly not be the end of MindMaze. We have a lot of exciting things still coming up and we’d like to thank Mark Bennett (Beyond Eden), Chris Haren (A Sound of Thunder) and Nick Saulsbury for stepping up to the plate to cover our upcoming gigs.’ Continue reading »

mindmaze_single_logoMindMaze are a promising band like no other. In a time when female-fronted metal is at an all-time high in popularity and also at an all-time high for imitators and copy-cats, this Pennsylvania-based group has strived to create a sound and identity all their own. The band’s debut album “Mask of Lies” was released in February 2013 and the band impressively sold 100% of the first pressing in just 14 months, including shipping copies to 35 different US states as well as 18 countries worldwide. The band accomplished all of this independently through hard work and a strong DIY work ethic.“Back from the Edge” is MindMaze’s sophomore effort which is released late October, through Inner Wound Recordings featuring Symphony X’s Mike LePond on bass and guest appearances by members of Stratovarius, LORD, Pharoah, and more.

An interview with Sarah (vocals) and Jeff (guitars) follows below.
