Calgary rock band, Lucid Scream has only been together for shortly over a year. When listening to their self titled EP, it sounds like they’ve been together for years. Eric Paulin, Shaddy Elsaghir, Chris LoNigro, Zach Mansfield and Tyler Murzyn have definitely made some pretty rad music.
If I had to describe their sound, I’d use the word “timeless”. It sounds like they’ve really captured the routes of classic rock and metal, but they’ve put their own modern sound to it. They have the epic guitar riffs and insane bass and drum that just pull you in from the first few seconds. The vocals are both hardcore and strong.
Some of my favourite songs off their EP is “Black Widow” (both the original and acoustic versions) and “The Evil”. I feel that these songs best represent the entire package that this band has.
I’m an aspiring entertainment journalist from Fredericton, New Brunswick, and a 2017 graduate from St. Thomas University with majors in Journalism and Psychology.
Aside from psychology, my passion has always been for music and storytelling. It is my dream to be in the industry, and music journalism seems to be the perfect fit. Along with a bit of photography dabbling, I think I’m pretty well on on my way.
When I’m not working, I’m listening to music, finding new artists to love, playing Dungeons and Dragons, or playing with my cats.
