The year 2004 brings a new chapter to the history of QUO VADIS. The long awaited follow-up "Defiant Imagination" to the albums Day Into Night (2000) and "Forever..." (1996) demonstrates mature songwriting by a band constantly pushing the limits. Just as with the release of previous albums, both of which have been critically acclaimed - nominated as "Best new Canadian Talent" by the 2001 Canadian Music Network Awards, QUO VADIS refused to simply clone the sounds and ideas that brought previous efforts their recognition. Instead their new offering, like it's predecessors, is an evolution, a step forward and a challenge to the status quo. 

Musically, the album will impress both the fans of Death and Prog metal. 
The band manages to balance odd time signatures and tempo changes with an exceptional sense of melody and power - an equilibrium achievable only by the combination of Frydrychowicz and Bercier's playing styles. DiGiorgio's fretless meanderings compliment the rhythm section with counter melodies not heard since DEATH's Individual Thought Patterns. Imposing vocals, solos, as well as the tasteful use of piano, cellos and choirs complete the offering for an unforgettable experience.

This uncompromising attitude has pushed QUO VADIS to part ways with long time members, Arie Itman and Remy Beauchamp, and to enlist a full time vocalist Stephane Paré as well as Steve DiGiorgio, Roxanne Constantin and William Seghers to complete the album lineup. Mixed and mastered at Morrisound Studios in Tampa Florida by Jim Morris this album will be unlike any other release of 2004.


With a new live lineup QUO VADIS has criss-crossed the eastern and central Canada in the 5 months prior to the November album release, playing sold out shows and covering close to 10,000 km. The band had the honor of headlining such events as Night One of Trois Rivieres Metalfest IV alongside such legends as Cryptopsy (Night Two) with direct support from Misery Index as well as headlining the Rouyn Open Air in July.
