After opening for Fleshgod Apocalypse's venue in Naples during their "King Tour", the band entered the Kick Recording Studio to record the debut album "Catharsis" with producer Marco Mastrobuono from December 2016 to January 2017, featuring Marco Mastrobuono (Hour of Penance, Buffalo Grillz), Massimiliano Pagliuso (Novembre), Francesco Ferrini (Fleshgod Apocalypse), Elisabetta Marchetti (Riti Occulti), Riccardo Studer (Stormlord).
The band's name, "Párodos", comes from classics, especially from greek tragedy where the term "parodo" stands for both a side-entrance, and the first song sung by the chorus after its entrance from the side wings (parodoi). The concept behind our music is to introduce the listener into a journey through human tragedy, where everyone is the actor yet a spectator, and to guide him through a purification process that leads to Catharsis, which is the title of our album.
"Catharsis" is dedicated in its entirety to Luigi, cousin, friend, brother whose departure after a long suffering deeply changed our lives and dramatically influenced our music. Therefore, the record resembles the structure of a greek tragedy, from Prologue to Exodus, dealing with sorrow to capture its essence and to recover hope.
