PARASONA: the combination of latin words "Parabellum" (prepare for war) and "Potensona" (powerful music).
A passionate pop rock band from Toronto, Canada. Parasona works to share their creativity with the world that will provoke you to feel again. The band consists of Adam Lancia (Vocals, Guitar) and Joshua Golias (Drums, Beard).
Parasona have released their energetic pop rock singles "Revel in the Night" & "Scars You Left Behind" which were co-written and produced by Steve Molella of the band Finger Eleven. Available everywhere now!
"Revel is an upbeat rock anthem about two people emotionally scarred from past relationships coming together in the randomness of the night. They fulfill each other's desires and needs without a care for what will happen tomorrow, just being free in the moment."
"With Scars we wanted a song that talked about the addiction of not being able to let go of someone. Being taken advantage of because of being complacent and letting any love you had left to give slowly drain away. Both are songs that on the surface you can listen and have a good time but also has a deeper meaning of toxic relationships." - Adam
Accepted to The Artist Entrepreneur program, Canadian music/ management label Coalition Music helped progress the band immensely. Thats where they performed in front of renown producer Arnold Lanni. Arnold took a keen liking to Adam's voice and the pair started working right away on their debut single "Fall Down". Parasona travelled down to California where the single was recorded. Working together with Arnold Lanni, Parasona’s song writing and overall vision has evolved which led to working with Steve Molella from Finger Eleven. The band's newest singles have been featured across southern Ontario's rock radio stations including 102.1 The Edge with Alan Cross.
Parasona's debut full length album "BAD SEED" is now available! The album embodies the rollercoaster that love plays on our hearts, minds and souls. It also shows the struggle to grow as a person and come out the other side as more than just a bad seed. The album's debut single "FALL DOWN" was produced by Arnold Lanni (Our Lady Peace, Simple Plan, Finger Eleven).
As an audio engineering graduate of Trebas Institute, Josh engineered Parasona's debut album "BAD SEED" while Adam wrote, composed, produced and arranged the tracks. Josh has also recorded, mixed and mastered Parasona's self titled EP in 2014 and their follow up "Ep II" in 2015. The band has self distributed and shipped their EP's to fans all over the Americas, Europe, New Zealand, Philippines, Indonesia and Japan.
Influenced by all types of music and art, Parasona loves keeping an open mind. The band blends a modern day rock vibe and have been compared to a more rock version of Maroon 5. A great song has to resonate and connect with a listener and make the listener feel ‘something’. The listener has to be ‘affected’ in some way and that is what Parasona strives for.
"They are rock music's alternative cousin. The band and Adam's voice is fun yet still melodic. There is something very unique and special that will resonate with the listener." - Arnold Lanni (record producer)

The name Lancia stems from the Italian word Lanciare ( to launch, throw, cast, start ) and the image of the arrow has always represented this name.
An Arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means its going to launch you into something great. The key is to keep doing and never give up. Go for what you believe in. Work hard and get yourself out there to the world.
Stay focused and keep aiming.
