Portrait of a Nightmare (PoaN) is an Industrial Hard Rock/Metal band based out of Orange County, California, USA. Their music blends electronic and danceable beats with the heaviness of harder music. Portrait of a Nightmare consists of two writing members, but the band performs as a four to five-piece live. Pascal Simpkins is the vocalist and lyricist of the group. Tass Szanto is their live guitarist performing guitars and bass and programming for recordings. PoaN has an unreleased album produced, mixed, and mastered by Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch, Gojira, DevilDriver). They also have an unreleased music video for the song ‘Reach Inside’ directed and produced by Matt Mahurin (Disturbed, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, U2). The band’s live shows are known to be powerful, high-energy, and captivating, earning them critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base that continues to grow. While the hard rock and metal audience is anxiously waiting for the release of the new album, PoaN is developing the stage show to include programmed lights, special effects, costumes, acting, and various methods of audience engagement for the ultimate thrill for the audience. ‘Overdrive’ is a high-octane mix of heavy metal riffs, screamo angst, and industrial energy, yet it carries a positive and encouraging message. Pascal delivers an intense performance as he sings of taking accountability and overcoming depression & stress to find happiness.
