Heonia [Metal, France]Heonia is a melodic metal band from the Lille region in France, whose style has been influenced by prog, heavy, and death metal... The band was born in January 2006 when Thomas and Marieke met, and shared a common desire to write original pieces. Once the line-up was complete, and after several concerts, Heonia release their first self-produced 4-track EP Simulacra in November 2008 -- which has received very encouraging praises. The band then gave many concerts in their home region. In July 2009, Heonia decided to start recording their first album. This album called Winsome Scar includes 11 titles reflecting the band's spirit, and is due to be released in Sept. 2010.
After 2 years of fastidiously trying to compose together by sending one another our soundfiles, we finally adopted Guitar Pro and soon found it to be an indispensable tool for us to exchange our ideas for riffs and tunes.
It is very handy to work on a playback, play certain parts in loops, check and correct our tunes' rhythmic and harmonic consistency. It truly helped us get ready to go into studio for our Winsome Scar album.
Guitar Pro is definitely the tool that we could not do without!
