Symphonic/progressive rock trio DON CANYON are set to release their new single on May 2nd, a re-arrangement of the well known classical composition by Karl Jenkins, entitled ‘Palladio’, with a rock concept.
The band are hosting a live chat session on their official YouTube channel prior to and on the release date of the track. You can tune in at this location. The track will be available to buy on Amazon and Apple Music and for streaming on all mainstream platforms such as Spotify, iTunes, Deezer etc.
Drummer Panos composed the strings and recorded the drums. His brother Themis, who is just 16 years old, recorded all the rhythm and lead guitars. The song was recorded and mixed by producer Chris Charalambides at SoundScape Studios in Cyprus.
Panos states “The track, as it is a classical song, emulates sections on both guitar and violin, while we also added our own compositional ideas to make it more powerful and interesting. It has a lot of interesting sections that encourage the listener to keep listening and express different feelings, such as in a movie soundtrack. The track has both an empowerment and aggressiveness to it but also a sense of hope and positivity. This is something that characterizes the band’s musicality in relation to the message that we want to share in our upcoming songs with a strong lyrical content, which will refer to social problems in our world.”
Check out the last video ‘Requiem for a Dream’:
DON CANYON was formed in Cyprus in 2018 by Panos, who has a background in classical violin, with his brother Themis, where they self-recorded, filmed and edited their first instrumental track to air on YouTube. The track is from the well-known movie “Requiem For a Dream” – Panos had initial idea to do a rock version of the track with his brother. As Cyprus is a small island with no large rock audience, the band’s focus is to spread their blend of rock music with classical tones to listeners in Europe and America. Guitarist Yegor has recently joined the brothers and the band are searching for a vocalist, with plans for starting to play live shows.
DON CANYON is:
Panos Papadopoulos – Drums, Violin
Themis Papadopoulos – Rhythm & Lead Guitar
Yegor Aquarius – Rhythm & Lead Guitar
