Portuguese prog metal act Phase Transition unleash brand new track and video!


Phase Transition was born in Porto, Portugal. It is composed by the drummer Fernando Maia, the guitarist Luís Dias, Zé Pereira on the bass, and Sofia Beco, on violin and vocals.


The band combines influences ranging from classical music to technical progressive metal, as a result of the eclectic backgrounds of the members.

They started at university, in the middle of their studies for exams, with Dream Theater covers. While trying to pass their courses, they managed to release their first EP called "Relatively Speaking", in 2020. Since then, they are playing in several venues like HardClub and festivals such as Comendatio Music fest.


After an exciting start telling their cosmological tales at some of the largest Iberian stages, earning the attention of the metal media giant Prog Magazine, Phase Transition decided to kick down reality’s door by delivering Your Guide, an earth-shattering anthem with a message of hope.


The lyrics are part in Portuguese and part in English. The Portuguese part expresses the sorrow and pain that was felt by the subject, which affirms this is the time to move on and leave all these feelings and their cause in the past. The chorus emphasizes this message of hope to inspire and guide the change, justifying the title of the music, Your Guide.


A revolution in the band’s sound, mixing a modern production style with a symphonic, larger-than-life, catchy yet groovy approach to Prog metal. A perfect fit for any Prog playlist.
