Alchemists is a new Swiss progressive metal band comprised of guitarist Marc Chevalley (ex-Make Me A Donut), bassist Yoann Maillard (Path Of Desolation), drummer Thomas Giroud and vocalist Julen Ibarrola (Ex-Buried Skies). Their unique and powerful style incorporates musical influences from death metal, progressive metal and hardcore like a jam session between members of Periphery, Meshuggah and Northlane. The songs are complex and aggressive, yet they’re also replete with strong hooks and grabbing melodies.
The band’s debut album “Chapter One: Love” was produced by Martin Gronnier (The Dali Thundering Concept), mastered by Pierrick Noël (Kadinja, Klone) and is set for release on March 27th via Tenacity Music.
Even though, Alchemists aren’t exactly formed by young and starting musicians, they definitely show a tremendous ambition to make an impact on the music with their powerful, technical yet captivating metal sound, so don’t them fly under your radar.
