* * * * * Pride And Ego Down – Cloud Moving Mind * * * * *
[ Pride And Ego Down ] ~ We started Pride And Ego Down as a two-piece a few years ago. Tried different things, played a few shows in and around our hometown but always struggled with our sound and the direction in which we were heading. When we started, neither one of us was able to play his instrument really well but with the years we grew more confident and felt more comfortable with the songwriting-process.
When we finally decided to get serious and record a real EP, we decided that it would be necessary for the band to add a base player. We asked a friend of us, he joined the band, we played a show together and from then on we were a three-piece. Soon we began recording in the studio of a friend of ours and out came “Cloud Moving Mind”.
With time and the experiences we made with the “scene” (or whatever you want to call it) we grew pretty tired of the bands and people around us. Noone seemed to really want to work for his music, everyone was rather interested in school, job, university… you name it. So a main goal of us has become to escape this lame world we have been stuck in for so long. We hope that “Cloud Moving Mind” is the beginning of us getting out there, play shows and meet people who actually care for the whole thing. We are ready to put everything on the line and work as hard as we can. We are looking forward to what lies ahead.

[ Cloud Moving Mind ] is an amazing blend of post-metal, screamo and post-hardcore mix. Given the mass releases and artists we have in this particular genre sometimes it gets a little tricky, but rest assure [ Pride And Ego Down ] is definitely not one of the generic screamo band. Take [ Counterworld ] for instance… While the concept of this piece seems to be obvious clear forefront vocals racing along firm and rigid guitars, crescendos, bold and striking voc’s automatically falls in the back-end as an additional third atmospheric layers. Stunning release, I just wish the duration of this EP was longer than it is.
