he result- 20 songs and a 14 song album called, ‘A Matter of Perspective’
PereirA was masterminded on the 1st Of July 2011. A mix of ideas and styles like nu metal, Progressive , alternative, acid jazz, alternative, ethnic, down tempo, brutal metal, dub step, rap core, symphonic etc., makes this album worth listening to. His two finger tapping techniques on bass, similar to John Myung of Dream Theater, power guitar and a combination of vocal frequencies makes this a fest, to make you frantic.
Conrad’s childhood lacked any means of comfort but was richly compensated with the family’s huge love for music. Growing up with musicians, he first broke out, on hearing Rob Halford sing. At an early age of ten till today’s PereirA, he has been very active with a number of bands.
PereirA is a new awakening, a discovery, an invention, a dream come true, the combining of heart Soul and mind, blood sweat tears and hard work.

Perspective is a mix of Emotions , a recipe borrowed and made from life”. Conrad’s Music comes from the heart. He wants to keep on composing as long as he can. He’s has finally found a way to do something he loves. “It ain’t been easy” he says “but It’s been worthwhile.”
