is the new band of Parris Scaglione, singer, musician and composer born in Milan, Italy.After a career that began in 1986 and which saw him founder of bands such as Bonecrusher, Middle Ages and Waywarson, in 2013 Parris, tired of having to depend on other musicians, decided to get back in the game and created his solo project named Parris Hyde. From the beginning it was clear the intention to create a character more than just a musician, starting from the name Parris Hyde , an evident reference to the Dr. Jeckill and Mr. Hyde double personality. The music also followed the same direction and the first songs were provocative and disturbing, as well as the image was shocking and horror.Based on these premises, the first 4-track EP "I killed my wife with a knife" was recorded in 2014, mainly made to start spreading the name on specialized press and webzine. On the occasion of the Christmas holidays, the single "Metal Bells" was released, a metal version of Jingle Bells, with twisted lyrics.In 2015 while Parris was working on the first full length, he was encouraged by the musicians with whom he was occasionally meeting for jam sessions to turn his project into a real band. Thus was born the first Parris Hyde line-up, composed, in addition to the same, by Roby Kant on guitar, Max Dean on bass and Karl Teskio on drums.In June 2016, the first album "Mors Tua, Vita Mea" was released via the record label "Free Mood Promotion". The album despite a debt of classic Metal, already denoted an originality and variety of contents, as highlighted by the specialized press . In support of the album, two official videos were made : "Life on the Line" and "2nd2no1". At the same time, an intense live activity began, with shows with a strong theatrical content.At the beginning of 2017 Paul Crow took over from guitar.The following year, in May 2018, the EP "Undercover I" was released, containing in addition to an unreleased song, unusual covers such as "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga and "Living next door to Alice" by SmokieIn the same year the ambitious short movie “Mors tua, Vita Mea” was made, a real cinematic trailer whose soundtrack, composed by Parris Hyde, does not consist of a classic Heavy Metal song but rather an orchestral and symphonic piece.A series of changes in the lineup led to the current situation in which the band is made up of Parris Hyde, on vocals and guitar, Roby Kant on bass and Karl Teskio on drums.In the following years the band committed to the composition and recording of the songs that will make up the new albumContinuing a tradition of Christmas songs, for Christmas 2020 the unreleased single "Santa Wears No Mask" is released, an ironic criticism of the situation generated by the Covid-19 pandemicThe second album "Unlock your freedom", finally sees the light in March 2022, released by the record label "Missleader Records": already from the fantastic cover, created by the graphic studio "Saber Core", this is clearly the album of maturity for Parris Hyde: the songs become more particular and structured: a sort of intelligent Metal both in musical and lyrical contents, with references to both modern and classic and with veiled references to Hard Rock.
