The main creative driving force behind the PYJAMA PLANET EMPIRE (MARK PYJAMA) is
back with his Solo Project PYJAMA PLANET – THE PRELUDE is the first single from his
upcoming album MADJENTA and sets the tone for things to come as a heavy progressive
symphonic metal composition.
I am just going to jump right in here, I had no idea what to expect when I heard the name
Pyjama Planet. I have seen the name float around on social media before, but honestly as a
more “traditional” metalhead so to speak, the name threw me off a bit, and I never took an
interest. That being said, every time I saw the name coming up somewhere it always stuckin
the back of my mind, it was like a little strange gift that I buried away in my subconscious and probably never would have opened until I agreed to review their new song The Prelude from the up and coming album Madjenta.
Boy, was I glad I finally decided to open that strange little gift, cause it turned into a strange and wonderful journey of storytelling, visuals, and comical aspects as well. That is the first thing that captures your attention during the music video, the story behind Madjenta, and then as the music starts you are transported to progressive, symphonic, djent metal like whirlpool of guitars piano and instrumental prowess that is absolutely outstanding.
The fact that there are no vocals, is not even a factor, in fact I believe adding vocals would have ruined the song and there would have been no chance for the listener to get lost in the
instrumental side of it, which is the essence of the song.
Pity I missed the performance at Winterfest, but I am glad that I have opened my world to
Pyjama Planet and the warrior hero Madjenta.
The Prelude will release 02 October 2020 on all major streaming platforms, do not miss this
