The Gabriel Construct Unite Prog Rock And Metal Star Cast With "Interior City"

Maryland solo artist Gabriel Riccio, founded of The Gabriel Construct, has managed to unite a hefty lineup of progressive rock/metal greats for his brand new concept album "Interior City". The album features respected names Travis Orbin (Darkest Hour, ex-Periphery, Of Legends) on drums, Thomas Murphy (ex-Periphery) on bass, David Stivelman (ex-Debbie Does Dallas) on guitar, Soren Larson on saxophone, and Sophia Uddin on violin.

Taylor Larson (Periphery, Life on Repeat, Conditions, Of Legends, Sky Eats Airplane) mixed and mastered the release, while Riccio himself wrote, recorded and produced. The album is theme-rich, commenting on our collective dogmas and programming, and the negative aspects of our "no respect" society for the individual. If that sounds a bit lofty for your typical music listening, then get ready for the music itself, which is a virtual hurricane of chaos, dissonance, atmosphere, and haunting melodies. If you're not an advic listener of either progressive rock, metal, art rock, jazz, or experimental music, you'll probably feel overwhelmed pretty quickly. However, if you are a fan of artists like the Mars Volta, Porcupine Tree, Devin Townsend, or Periphery, the stage should be set for a new favorite.
