Heavily influenced by prog god fathers like Yes, Rush and Genesis, in combination with hard hitting thrash vocals and drums, Paradigm truly explore the limitless potential found in modern melodic prog metal.
Paradigm represent something new and different, where Vorbid candidly challenge genres and cross borders into new sonic territories.
Proving, yet again, how uncompromising and confident Vorbid are when it comes to music and artistic freedom.
Vorbid is a young, raw, and incredibly energetic metal band from Arendal, Norway.
The band stunned both fans and critics with their unique take on progressive metal infused with elements from thrash and melodic death metal.
The band was founded in 2013 while the members were still in their teens, and has since had rapid and intense growth into a band with their own unique style of metal where Vorbid combine the riffs and the intensity from the thrash genre with the techniques and melodies from the progressive rock genre.
Vorbid have won multiple contests, like 4th place in GBOB world finale (Global Battle of the Bands), Massive destruction, Rytmisk Fabrikk and the Norwegian finals in the Wacken Metal Battle as well as Bloodstock’s Metal 2 the Masses.
Both of the band’s previous releases, a self-titled EP from 2016, and their debut album Mind from 2018, received amazing reviews and got extensive media coverage. Landing them tours with Norwegian underground heavy weights such as Aura Noir, Obliteration and Einherjer.
In 2022 the Vorbid have returned with even more technically challenging and intriguing music, stepping up the game and proving themselves worthy of a place at the prog metal table.
