In The Cellar – Parasona
PARASONA: the combination of latin words “Parabellum” (prepare for war) and “Potensona” (powerful music).
A passionate alternative rock band from Toronto, Canada. Parasona works to share their creativity with the world with powerful guitar, big drums and unique vocals that will provoke you to feel again. Influenced by all types of music and art, Parasona loves keeping an open mind. The band blends 90’s sounds with a modern day rock vibe. They have been compared to Smashing Pumpkins, Our Lady Peace, Green Day and Billy Talent. The band consists of Adam Lancia (Vocals, Guitar) and Joshua Golias (Drums, Beard).
Parasona’s debut single “FALL DOWN” was produced by Arnold Lanni (Our Lady Peace, Simple Plan, Finger Eleven). The band is currently in the studio recording their 2016 full length album. Accepted to The Artist Entrepreneur program, Canadian music/ management label Coalition Music helped progress the band immensely. Thats where they performed in front of renown producer Arnold Lanni. Arnold took a keen liking to Adam’s unique voice and the pair started working right away on their debut single “Fall Down”. Parasona travelled down to California where the single was recorded. Working together with Arnold Lanni, Parasona’s song writing and overall vision has evolved. A great song has to resonate and connect with a listener and make the listener feel ‘something’. The listener has to be ‘affected’ in some way and that is what Parasona strives for in their instrumentals and especially in the unique vocals.
As an audio engineering graduate of Trebas Institute, Josh recorded, mixed and mastered Parasona’s self titled EP in 2014 and their follow up “Ep II” in 2015. The band has self distributed and shipped CDs to fans all over the Americas, Europe, New Zealand, Philippines, Indonesia and Japan.
“They are rock music’s alternative cousin. The band and Adam’s voice is quirky yet still melodic. There is something very unique and special that will resonate with the listener.” – Arnold Lanni (record producer), 2015.
