Hi, my name is Shant. I write and play delicious proggy music for the prog metal project Semantic Saturation. I work with a different set of musicians on every album.

Semantic Saturation is a progressive rock/progressive metal band/project founded by Canadian guitarist Shant Hagopian. The debut album Solipsistic is featuring world class musicians and prog gurus; drummer Virgil Donati, bassist Ric Fierabracci, with guests; keyboardist Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater) and vocalist Andy Kuntz from Vanden Plas. Solipsistic was released physically and digitally on January 21, 2013. The album is available for sale in both formats on the Semantic Saturation site and on other online stores like Amazon, iTunes and others.

Perceiving and recognizing faces where none exists is a phenomenon that happens in the human brain. Sometimes it even leads humans to believe in supernatural beings, today pareidolia affects and distorts our perception of reality that makes us go great extents to proof to others that we do not have any weaknesses in our own realities. The phenomenon mostly affects those with strong beliefs. The face on Mars is just a rock casting a shadow that looks like a face, but I can’t tell you that because your pareidolic illusions are colluding your mind.

The carousel is a series of all the events that occur in our lives, the ride we get on is the path we take in life, it may look fun when we're just watching it spin, but once you take the ride, you realize you don't get off until you're dead. It's the ride for life and death. Get the Carousel of Death T-shirt at our online store https://shop.semanticsaturation.com

The mirrors are our alternate realities, our profiles on social network platforms, which are destroying our true identity and confusing us with a reflection of our false realities. These mirrors confuse us with places we want to be, people we want to become, desires we want to fulfill. The reflection in the mirror looks clear to ourselves, but they look distorted and confusing from others point of view, because our aspirations are not always viewed equally by everyone.

This is the only song with vocals from Solipsistic album, featuring Andy Kuntz of Vanden Plas on vocals. This song is about everything we all do in our daily lives, why do we do them, and what would happen if every single one of us just stop for a moment and reflect on our realities. After all, we're only here for a while.

Time is a nothing but a measure created my mankind. It doesn't exist yet it governs our lives. Once you stop thinking of time as a linear dimension, the illusion is lifted and pieces of the puzzle come together.
