"PARADOX - A powerful Alternative Rock/Grunge Outfit hailing from Cork, Ireland whose music has gathered rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic for its unique diverse blend of melodic vocals, driven by cutting edge riffs."
Paradox are an Alternative Rock/Grunge Outfit from Cork, Ireland.
Formed in 1996 by brothers Pete Mac and Mike Mac the early Paradox sound was heavily influenced by the Grunge Era of the 90's. The band shaped much of their music around many vocal harmonies layered on top of power chord riffs. After playing the local circuit, recording many demos and fine tuning their sound Paradox headed to the US and secured a record deal with an independent label based in Los Angeles, California. Pete and Mike flew out to LA for 2 weeks and recorded their debut album 'Circle of Growth' in December 2000. They both played all instruments on the album as well as producing the album themselves. Paradox continued to tour all over Ireland and the US with many different bass players jumping in for the bands live shows. When they returned from the US the second time they parted ways with their label and decided that the only way to go is DIY.
Paradox returned to the studio in January 2003 and recorded 6 new songs that were initially to be released as an EP. Among these tracks was the song 'Lame and Languid' which portrayed a completely new sound for Paradox. In January 2004 Paradox returned yet again to the same studio and recorded another 6 songs including tracks 'Downward Spiral' and 'Pretend Friend'. These 12 songs became 'Sacred' the album. 'Sacred' was a major progression from the bands debut album 'Circle of Growth', veering away from their previous Punk Rock/Grunge sound to a more Melodic Alternative Sound that the band has been thriving to achieve since their creation. Pete and Mike Mac yet again played all instruments on the album. 'Sacred' proved to be a DIY success receiving rave reviews online from fans to online fanzines and radio stations.  ...more...
