German Pascual

GERMÁN PASCUAL released his solo album – A New Beginning –  in October 2012, guest musicians include Martin Hall (Forged Wings) and Carl-Johan “CJ” Grimmark (Narnia, Fires Of Babylon, Rob Rock) and bassists Per Schelander (Pain of Salvation, Ex-Royal Hunt) and Raphael Dafras (Almah, Seven Horizons)

German Pascual was born in Uruguay, spent his childhood in Brazil, and has lived in Stockholm, Sweden, since his early teens. GERMÁN was named as “the best metal voice 2009” by “The Gates of Metal”.

Starting music as a drummer in a thrash band at 15, he was invited to join the band rehearsing next door as a vocalist when they overheard him screaming through the walls … the band next door was Minds Eye …

In 2008 Narnia needed a singer, and through a friend German made contact with Narnia guitarist C.J Grimmark. The album “Course of a Generation” by Narnia was launched in late 2009. Feeling blessed to have found this great band and being part of Narnia, German was stunned when the band decided to end all activity a year and two farewell gigs later.

German then recorded an album with Divinefire as Co-Vocalist of former Narnia singer Christian Liljegren and recorded some guest vocals on the Golden Resurrection album Glory To My King and on the metal opera project Soulspell album The Labyrinth Of Truths (both released 2010). Officially German is still considered a band member of Divinefire I guess.

German Pascual is also known for his work with the less fortunate, homeless and drug addicts and others in Stockholm’s Stadsmission.

Progressive Metal

Label: Nightmare Records

For fans of: Dream Theater, Circus Maximus and Devin Townsend

Progressive metal through the years has become an interesting genre. You have those bands who have essentially become Dream Theater worship and then you have those bands who are actually progressive, pushing new ideas such as Devin Townsend, Ihsahn and Sigh just to name a few. UK prog metal band Aeon Zen as much as they try, is of the former as they incorporate many of the features of Dream Theater such as tempo changes, contrasts between heavy and light with excellent musicianship. While they do attempt to change things up and make things different, their most recent album “Enigma,” evidently shows the long list of their influences.

“Enigma” kickstarts with an instrumental, which essentially sounds like the a-typical Dream Theater clone of subtle…
