Biografia

Paramaecium é uma banda de death/doom metal formada em 1991. Fazem uso de instrumentação como flautas, violoncelos e violinos em alguns álbuns. Paramaecium é uma das poucas bandas de doom metal que focam em letras de temática e conceitos cristãos. De acordo com o site doom-metal.com, “o que separa Paramaecium das outras bandas da cena doom metal é o fato de eles serem a única banda cristã de doom/death metal a alcançar o topo do gênero.”

Em 1993, Paramaecium lançou seu álbum de estréia, Exhumed of the Earth, o qual se tornou um marco do gênero death/doom. A banda consistia em Andrew Tompkins nos vocais e baixo, Jason De Ron na guitarra e Jayson Sherlock na bateria. A música era inspirada nas bandas Cathedral , e anteriormente, My Dying Bride e Anathema. A banda incorporou sons de flauta e violino, assim como uma soprano ao lado do que era comumente oferecido musicalmente pelo death e pelo doom metal.

Paramaecium adicionou o guitarrista base Chris Burton em 1995 e lançou seu segundo álbum, Within the Ancient Forest, o qual era acompanhado por um romance fantástico com o mesmo nome, escrito por Tompkins. O álbum era mais diverso e técnico, envolvendo vocais femininos, cravo, piano, flauta e violoncelo. O terceiro álbum, A Time To Mourn, foi lançado em 1999 e marcou a saída de todos os antigos membros da banda, exceto Tompkins.

    Seriously, why do we need to call it "christian metal"... You don't call any other band "atheist metal"

    "stupid tag...must be those stoopidiest Religulous fanatics, music is art, peole still don´t get it" You're way incoherent, man. How do you even justify your statement by saying "music is art"? Religious music is no more or less artistic than nonreligious music. Christian Metal is an appropriate tag for the band. Sorry that the radio situation doesn't work out, I'm sure there are other ways of finding similar bands.

    opps... sorry. 94 I meant. Heard them in 94 for the first time.

    yeah... i really admire this band. their exhumed of the earth album back in 96 was the first doom metal song i had ever heard of its kind. I was all into the fastest shit imaginable, but this band showed me that slow and groovy is just as affective. I then heard my dying bride and then i heard stoner metal. anyway... Paramecium (though i know they didn't really start any of those styles) were a great gateway band to that side of metal for me. Also... them being not preachy at all... I liked that a lot about them being a Christian band. And of course... the one and only Jason Sherlock... one of my favorite metal drummers of all time. Man... he really did it all. His new bands sound really kick ass.

    All of their music is amazing, but I think that Within the Ancient Forest might be their best

    @Arnonrg: Just wondering, why is that amazing? I'm sure that a band of Christians or non-Christians are both capable of playing good and/or original metal music. I agree with you about this band being great though.

    It's amazing how a Christian band can be as good and original genre as other Metal bands
