Consider Source’s Announced Fall Tour and Opeth’s Cover Video


Middle Eastern sci-fi fusion progressive rockers Consider the Source announced their “Maxx Power Tour” drop and released a cover video for Opeth’s “Death Whispered a Lullaby.”

Maxx Power Tower

Consider the Source is a sci-fi fusion trio blending progressive rock and improvised jazz, steeped in Indian and Middle Eastern styles. Their last electric album, You are literally a metaphor, reached the peak of their fifteen-year musical journey. Featuring the same fury and dazzling virtuosity of their previous work, Metaphor is also a portrait of three musicians reaching new levels of maturity.

The “Maxx Power Tour” will be their return to all-electric performance as they performed a hybrid acoustic electric tour with their “Hybrid Vol. 1: Like a Mule”. Bluesy swing from “When You’ve Loved and Lost Like Frankie Has” to the ethereal electro synths of “Sketches From a Blind Man”, they continue to infuse minimalist pop, progressive metal and freewheeling improvisation into their omnivorous musicality.

three of The Metaphore nine songs are Eastern European traditions. Bassist John Ferrara’s new Taurus bass pedals and guitarist Gabriel Marin’s new custom Vigier double neck guitar add new dimensions to the band’s already diverse sound.

As for their new cover music video, Opeth is one of the few groups that influenced the three of Consider the Source individually during our teenage years and later collectively as a group.

They write extended compositions that are emotionally dark and brilliantly link extremely heavy sections with soft acoustic passages. Their top-notch production, tight beats and catchy melodies have become something we look for in our own original music. We wanted to cover one of their songs for a long time but we couldn’t choose a single favorite. We hope you enjoy our rendition of “Death Whispered A Lullaby” with some of our favorite riffs added to the end of “Closure” and “Deliverance.”
