See below, a short youtube preview trailer for Etymlogy, which is the forthcoming album from Burnt Belief, i.e. myself and guitarist Jon Durant.
This is the third album I have worked on with Jon, (...not including his marvellous work on Astarta/Edwin, which is yet to see the light of day). To me, the new album is a big development of our earlier sound and I really feel we have improved our past work and also brought out the best in each other, which is really what I hope for in any collaboration.
Jon and I decided to move on from the previous combinations of either electronics plus live percussion, or just percussion, in order to have a more full on (….and perhaps more overtly "rock") sound with the addition of drums, so joining us across the course of the album's 11 tracks are three very different drummers; firstly an old friend of mine in the shape of Dean McCormick, secondly Vinny Sabatino, who also drummed on some of Jon's previous solo material (well worth hearing!) and lastly a very sensitive performance from Jose Duque on "Rivulet" perhaps the album's most delicate tune.
We were searching also for an additional soloist to join us and found a truly great "voice" in the shape of violinist Steve Bingham who added just the right levels of sophistication and atmosphere.
Hard to choose which slices to serve up as a taster, but hopefully the trailer below shows the breadth of sounds and moods across the album….due October 21st, pre-order now at burning shed by clicking here
Bye for now,
