Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius Release HYSTERIA Single & Music Video From Upcoming Album

Electric Violinist & Singer Joe Deninzon Amplifies Muse’s Passionate Song

HYSTERIA is a Wagnerian/Queen-esque cover of Muse’s 2003 hit. The song is going to be on the upcoming Stratospheerius album, GUILTY OF INNOCENCE, out September 29 on Melodic Revolution Records, the leading North American progressive rock record label.

The Video was Directed by musician Dave Milone (of Radio 4), the video for HYSTERIA features a dramatic performance of the band punctuated with explosions. Deninzon says the explosions represent “Someone who has had enough! Feeling hopeless frustration with the current state of the world, breaking out of a bad relationship, or someone held back from their dreams and ambitions, a prisoner in their mind or in a literal sense…or both!”

Joe is a huge Muse and Queen fan, and pays tribute to both bands in their version of this song, “The original was so perfect that we wanted to reimagine the song entirely!” The single features singer Melanie Mitrano, the first time Stratospheerius has ever had an operatic soprano guesting on any of their recordings.

Fusing influences by artists as diverse as Tool, Tom Morello, Jean-Luc Ponty, and Jack Bruce, Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius are contenders for being the biggest deal in prog that you’ve never heard! Writes Cleveland.com’s Peter Chakerian, “He may not be a ‘household name’ (yet) but he’s kind of a big deal.” Adds Progressive Rock Central’s Angel Romero, the group “combines solid songwriting and tradition with extraordinary electric violin work and the sounds of the future.”

Special guests on GUILTY OF INNOCENCE include guitarist Alex Skolnick (Testament, TSO), keyboardist Rave Tesar (Renaissance), and vocalist/guitarist Randy McStine (The Fringe, Stu Hamm).

Je te laisse ce monde – Live // Featured Video of the Week // Lazuli

LAZULI “JE TE LAISSE CE MONDE” at NOTP Loreley Festival 2012 extracted of the DVD “Live @ l’abeille rôde”

Lazuli, a band from the south of France, was formed in 1998. Somewhere between progressive rock and electro-world, poetry and travel, the remarkable music of Lazuli is a clever mixture of different musical styles visiting new territories with a rather unusual instrumentation: marimba, French Horn, percussions, drum, guitars, vocals… But also and especially a unique instrument created by Claude Leonetti: the Léode*. For Lazuli’s musicians, songs are canvases on which they mix colors to paint their own world. The floating voice, playing with words, sings out ‘man’ in all of his facets. Lazuli brings atypical notes of originality to France’s musical scene and now carries them across it’s borders… On stage, Lazuli uplifts and bewitches…

– Claude LEONETTI: Léode Chœurs
– Gédéric BYAR: Guitare
