Cypriot symphonic/progressive rock trio DON CANYON recently released their debut single ‘Dynasty’.
The track is a progressive energetic hard rock tune which refers to bullying and to the current broken generation. The band felt it an important message to share, coming from personal experience. The song refers to a child who was bullied throughout his childhood and who realised how cruel people can become. ‘Dynasty’ refers to the hate he received from his surroundings and the current generation which often has an apathetic attitude towards this phenomenon, or this dynasty as the song is called.
The philosophy behind the song is also that many of the younger generation and the ones following are so absorbed by technology turning them into “zombies”, which can lead to more serious social problems and a lot of hate. The positive message is about empowerment for anyone who is currently being bullied and urges those people to get up on their feet and get their life back on track. The current generation is the one who can start to make positive changes.
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
