"While French Canada has acquired a reptutation as the spawning ground for out-rock groups such as Godspeed You Black Emperor!, the region also has an impressive progressive rock tradition. Miriodor...operate in a distinctly European Rock In Opposition vein, and their wide-ranging soundtracks for the mind feature frequent key changes and constantly mutating melodies, rhythms and moods. What makes the band so impressive is the graceful, almost effortless way they execute all their complex moves, with scarcely a trace of irony or self-cleverness." - Alternative Press.
Miriodor have been making adventurous, memorable and truly entertaining instrumental rock music for 25 years, performing on guitars, keyboards, violin, saxophones, bass and drums. As Goldmine said, "Occupying a realm somewhat between the chamber rock of Univers Zero and the spry fusion of vintage Jean-Luc Ponty, with hints of Van Der Graaf Generator and Soft Machine along the way, Miriodor mostly just sounds like Miriodor...unique and forward looking." Featuring guest performances by accordionist/keyboardist Lars Hollmer (of Samla Mammas Manna), Parade is the band's sixth album and is their most impressive and inspired album yet!
In addition to Miriodor's new studio work, this album includes a second disc which features the band's complete, now legendary performance at NEARFest 2002, which was seen by a sold-out audience of 1,850 and which caused Sea Of Tranquility to comment, "Miriodor proved that complex music can still have melody and finesse. Miriodor was without a doubt one of the highlights of the festival..." This CD is the band's first ever live release." [Cuneiform website]
