Polarization is an instrumental trio that creates a unique mix of hard-grooving heavy metal and atmospheric electronica. Within the span of one song they will hit the listener with pounding, adrenaline fueled, syncopated rhythms and then play hauntingly beautiful melodic passages that send shivers down the spine. Polarization is a perfect fit for fans of bands like Animals as Leaders, Meshuggah, Cloudkicker, and Spastic Ink.
The band was started by Prashant Mathias (guitars) while attending Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California. He went there, all the way from his home in India, to not only take his playing to new heights, but to find other musicians that shared his vision. Sebastian Holm (bass) and Tom Asvold (drums), both from Sweden, were those musicians. Together, they formed a bond that is quickly becoming an unstoppable force in the world of instrumental heavy metal music. Polarization is planning their debut release for the summer of 2011 and is lining up dates across the west coast for tours in late March-April, June, July-September and more.
