Metal Blade to release Trioscapes (BTBAM) album

Monday, March 12, 2012 8:54 AM PT


Official press release:

Trioscapes started in the summer of 2011 when bassist Dan Briggs (Between the Buried and Me) contacted Walter Fancourt (tenor saxophone/flute) and Matt Lynch (drums) about working up a rendition of the Mahavishnu Orchestra classic "Celestial Terrestrial Commuters." The group also messed around with a few original ideas with the intent of playing a one-off live show.

However, after rehearsing the material and playing the show, the group decided the music was so demanding and fun to perform that there should be more of a future for the project. A few more songs were written near the end of the summer and a full length album was recorded the first week of October with Jamie King in Winston-Salem, NC. Trioscapes combines elements of 70s fusion with progressive rock, dark syncopated grooves, a flare for the psychedelic, and an unabashed love for both quirky Zappa-ish melodies and thunderous abrasive trade-off lines.

Trioscapes currently has one show confirmed for this May to celebrate the release of the CD on Metal Blade Records. The 12" LP is also available via Dan Briggs's own Hogweed & Fugue Records. Both will be available for purchase at this show. More shows are currently being confirmed.

Separate Realities will be available May 8th in North America and May 7th in Europe.

Sounds like a description of Candiria, but with added elements of gayness

The pretentious levels of this would make Silent Circus-era BTBAM shake their heads in disgrace.

This is just a few decades late of being a sequel to this song: http://www.youtube.com/wat ch?v=WBWxX3713gc&feature=f vst

This is one of the funniest songs I have ever heard.

honestly didn't think the members of BTBAM could get any more pretentious and nerdy. Knew they'd pull through though.
