Vie Jester are a progressive hard rock trio from Pasadena. They recorded debut EP Cognisense at Revolution 9 Studios in Hollywood with Danny Balistocky behind the mixing desk. Going for a big sound a la Tool and Muse they laid down three tracks. They aim high, mixing elements of math rock and straight up metal.
Focusing on dynamics and well-served in harmonics Cognisense packs a punch. Add top shelf lyrical diversity, ranging from politics to the long-standing hard rock fascination for esoterics and this trio should outgrow the underground pretty damn fast.
