The Reasoning - Check out this great band

One of my favorite bands at the moment are The Reasoning a Cardiff-based six-piece rock band, formed by Matthew Cohen in 2005. The band’s line-up of experienced musicians features the vocal talents of Dylan Thompson and Gareth Jones, alongside Rachel Cohen, who was voted Best Female Vocalist by the UK’s Classic Rock Society for an unprecedented four consecutive years.

Following the recruitment of drummer Vinden Wylde, the band’s accomplished debut album Awakening was released in 2006 and has garnered worldwide critical acclaim. Mixed by Dave Meegan (U2, Marillion), boasting eight well-crafted tracks and a guest appearance from Marillion’s Steve Rothery, the album is instantly appealing, highly accessible and musically invigorating, and has been enthusiastically received by fans and media alike.

Guitar virtuoso Owain Roberts was welcomed into the fold in early 2008…and The Reasoning’s highly anticipated second album – Dark Angel – has now been released. Demonstrating the band’s exceptional songwriting abilities and skilled musicianship to the full, each track takes the listener on an exciting and wholly unforgettable musical journey. Mixed by John Mitchell (of It Bites and Kino notoriety).

With widespread influences drawn from the rock, metal, folk and pop genres, The Reasoning’s music is a dynamic confluence of the classic and the contemporary. Combining dual guitars and three outstanding lead vocalists, their unique and exquisite sound embraces breathtakingly powerful rhythm, spine-tingling harmony and irresistibly captivating melody, transgressing many conventional musical boundaries.
