Optical Faze is a brazilian modern metal band that started in 2000 and is formed by Mateus Araújo (vocals/guitars), Jorge Rabelo (guitars), Pedro Gabriel (keyboards/synths), Renato de Souza (drums) and Vicente Júnior (bass).
Already in 2001, the group was playing in big festivals such as the Porão do Rock (the band was considered by the official Porão do Rock magazine the revelation of 2001). They released their first CD in 2004, simply titled "I", which was received with praise by brazilian and international press.
In 2006, the band decided to record a new EP titled Riots in the Iris Sea. With a rawer, more organic approach to the band’s style, the album had a limited edition and is now only available on the Internet.
After years of playing in Brasilia and throughout Brazil, Optical Faze celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 with the release of the single Black Hole Iris, with two tracks released exclusively in digital format. The two tracks were widely praised and made room for more grandiose plans.
Throughout 2011, the band wrote the material for their first full-length album in eight years, that was recorded through January 2012 at Surplus Sound studio, Los Angeles, USA.
The album, titled The Pendulum Burns, was produced and mixed by renowned musician and producer RHYS FULBER (Fear Factory, Paradise Lost, Front Line Assembly), was mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Cynic, Sepultura) and has guest appearances by guitarist Jed Simon (Strapping Young Lad) and singer Leah Randi (Conjure One). It also contains original artwork by Michal Karcz (VNV Nation, Conjure One)
