AZIOLA CRY: the ironic divide full-length from Chicago instrumental progressive metal trio out now through Sensory Records and streaming in its entirety!

  Van Muylem    3 april 2021

AZIOLA CRY has performed with Behold… The Arctopus, Don Caballero, Tiles, Far Corner, and many others, while appearing at progressive rock festivals including M.A.R.S. Fest. The band released their debut album, Ellipsis, in 2005, followed by Ghost Conversations in 2007, after which they went wholly dormant, until now.

With Mike Milaniak on guitar, Jason Blake on Warr guitar, and Tommy Murray on drums, AZIOLA CRY closes a nearly fourteen-year gap between records in 2021 with their third album, The Ironic Divide. Boasting their heaviest and most intricate work yet, the forty-eight-minute album features four songs which tell the story of one person’s final descent. There are two types of people in this world. There are those who do good for others and make a positive contribution to society in some way. Then, there are those who do evil and hurt fellow humans. There is no rationale behind their behavior. They are cowards. This is their story.

AZIOLA CRY’s The Ironic Divide was recorded by Jim Siwek at Ultralownoise Studio and Transient Sound, mixed by Steven Gillis at Transient Sound, mastered by Ted Jansen at Sterling Sound (Alice In Chains, Lamb Of God, Gijora), and completed with artwork and design by Micka Klauck.
