Music is a special form of communication, which can translate the exact feelings emotions from the componist to the listeners. Music is the only kind of language, that can describe emotions exactly…without any words. Music is connecting.
This is what the music from german guitarist and composer Rory Rhoads is all about. Simple words can’t describe complex feelings like depression, the pain of a loss or a breakup after a toxic relationship. His music has a strong autobiographical touch and is trying to make such complex topics understandable to the attentive listener, even if they have never get in touch with those things. The goal is to connect everybody and support the mutual understanding for everybodys situation.
Genre wise, the songs always got a strong progressive core, with influences from classical music, jazz, really hard, fast and heavy metal stuff and if you ask…yes it can djent! His main influences are Ozzy Osbourne, Dream Theater, Devin Townsend, Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, Periphery, Guns N Roses, Meat Loaf, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and Rory Gallagher…to name just a few.
The first LP „Welcome to Neverland“ was released at 31th Octobre 2019. Actual he’s working on some instrumental stuff and the next album called: „The Mirror“.
