The Skinny: Rhine are a Seattle, WA-based progressive death metal quarter - consisting of Gabriel Tachell (guitar/vocals), Alex Smolin (guitar), Carlos Delgado (drums, not the former Toronto Blue Jays baseball player), and James Porter (bass) - who are set to release their 10-track album, An Outsider, on February 5, 2016. Today, as a special Christmas gift ahead of the album's release, we're pleased to offer an exclusive stream of the song "Paralyzed" - listen above.
Commented vocalist/guitarist Gabe Tachell about the song: "The single 'Paralyzed' is all about tension and release. The theme is about personal experiences with sleep paralysis. This song gives people a well rounded Rhine experience, showing both the dissonant and heavy as well as the light and pretty side of the music. It’s a very dynamic song that features a completely improvised solo plus a clean section that turns from sweet sounding finger picking into rock ‘n roll then back into an epic metal ending with a monotonous slow outro that represents the idea of being stuck in paralysis."
