About the band ::

Paradox are an Alternative Rock/ Grunge outfit from Cork, Ireland. Formed in 1996 by brothers Pete Mac and Mike Mac the early Paradox sound was heavily influenced by the Grunge Era of the 90's.The band has shaped and evolved their sound over the years while still maintaining their Alternative Rock sound. Paradox have released 4 studio albums to date. Their debut album 'Circle of Growth' was recorded in Los Angeles in 2000 and released on a US label. Their second album 'Sacred' was recorded and released in 2004, 'Corporate Pollution' was released in 2011 and their latest album 'Chapters' released in January 2015. Singer and songwriter Pete Mac also recorded and released a solo album in 2009 in Berlin, Germany.
'Corporate Pollution' marked a further evolution in the Paradox sound and received the most attention from any of the bands releases. From the opening track 'Corporate Pollution' with it's churning guitar riffs and political sneers the track seems to somewhat set the tone for the rest of the album. One reviewer noted that the album had 'so many influences it's hard to list them all, the music is solid, timeless and to the point'.
Another review from Loud-Stuff.com added - 'Maybe the ultimate compliment you can pay to this album is that you could listen to it between Nirvana's In Utero and Alice in Chains Dirt and it's every bit as good'.
'Mr. Bureaucracy' was chosen to be the first single with it's fast pulsing riffs and melodic vocal refrains. The band also shot a music video for 'Mr. Bureaucracy' in 2012 which was nominated for best song at the Berlin Music Video Awards, Dublin International short film and music awards the Portobello Film Festival London in 2013.
In 2012 the 'Corporate Pollution' track 'Repress Excess' was used on the soundtrack for Canadian horror movie 'Truth' which screened at the Cannes Film Festival and won the Canada International Film Festival's Royal Reel Award.
Paradox have toured both Europe and the US as well as playing support to the likes of Therapy?, Kerbdog and Shonen Knife in 2013. 2014 saw Paradox back in the studio recording their 4th album to date at Wavefield Recording Studios in Bantry, West Cork with multi tasking musician and engineer Brian Casey on the desk.
Titled 'Chapters' the 14 track album combines a variety of new sounds some of which have not yet been heard on any previous Paradox album. 'Chapters' is due for release early 2015.

"Instant success... Not a band to be compared to anyone"
Instant success is the only term I can use to describe the destiny of the Irish band, Paradox. With tracks like "Lame and Languid" and "Infinite" these guys are sure to grace the scene with a pumped up version of the modern Alternative/Rock sound. As I listened I found new reasons to listen again. Obviously Paradox is dedicated to their craft. The mix is great and the power is incredible with a perfect combination of acoustic and electric to please nearly every taste. As Rock goes I always try to compare one sound to another, but Paradox is not a band to be compared to anyone. Pete's vocals are impeccable, beautifully accented by the rest of the band. Lots of great guitar accents and solid beats put Paradox on the top of my "next best list" and make for one killer rock band. Driven by melody and pure adrenaline, these guys are a commanding force in the new music arena. I really enjoyed reviewing this band and, all in all, I can't find a reason to give Paradox less than 5 stars. I fully recommend listening to their style and adding them to your CD collection.
