Decibel Magazine is now playing “Come To Carry On,” the newest single from New Jersey-based progressive metal outfit GYRE and their Shared Visions debut album, which sees release next week. Produced by The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Kevin Antreassian, Shared Visions is an explosive and dynamic album that transcends simplistic genre categorization.
GYRE discloses of the new “Come To Carry On” single, “The song originated from a groovy, percussive riff Juan created and grew naturally from there. Lyrically the song is about holding on to ambitions and letting them guide you. It’s an unapologetic plea to keep moving and not let yourself sit idle while becoming stagnant in heart, body and mind.”
The write-up by Decibel Magazine offers of the song, “The band have a knack for crafting captivating prog without devolving into overly-technical showboating, instead opting for melody and memorable riffing.”

Following three well-received EP’s, nearly two years of sculpting, chiseling, and capturing ideas went into GYRE‘s Shared Visions. Returning to a three-piece as the band was founded, the members’ chemistry is at an all-time high, the current lineup having created more music together in less time than ever before. With a certain ease, a fever dream, the members have pushed to become one seamless entity in the delivery of their songcraft. With fifty minutes of multi-textured explosive music, GYRE‘s Juan Soaz recorded and produced Shared Visions, after which the band once again worked with Kevin Antreassian of The Dillinger Escape Plan at his Backroom Studios to mix and master the album.
Formed following the departure of metallic hardcore outfit Junta, GYRE draws from multiple sources of inspiration in creating their music. With a surge of heavy metal in the vein of Mastodon and Mutoid Man, going head-to-head with the progressive tendencies of Lazer/Wulf, Russian Circles and the rock of Baroness, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Muse, there lies traces of electronic, world, and folk music that are in constant motion just under the surface. Although outside influences are abundant, the main ingredient in their creations is an understanding of what each individual song is calling for; it’s about listening to what feels right and making good decisions that serve the song. It’s been quite the journey to get to this point of clarity, but the equation is simple — a shared vision amongst friends.
