Trioscapes started in the summer of 2011 when Dan Briggs(Between the Buried and Me) contacted Walter Fancourt (Casual Curious, Brand New Life) and Matt Lynch (Eyris) about working up a rendition of the Mahavishnu Orchestra classic “Celestial Terrestrial Commuters” and messing around with a few original ideas with the intent of playing a one-off show. “Blast Off,” the first song released a few months back impressed both the media and the fans and the expectation of the promised debut album raised to boiling high. Released on 08th May, 2012, by Metal Blade Records, “Separate Realities” will blow your head off.
The album was recorded in the first week of October with Jamie King in Winston-Salem, NC. Six tracks, one of them over 11 minutes, while the shortest one is almost 5 minutes long. This is intense and groovy Jazz merged with full force Metal. Extremely breathing, pounding, pumping, alive as generally the improvised Jazz albums are, but intense as only a Metal album could get.
Many Oriental aromas, grooves are incorporated in this cutting edge Metal/Jazz mixture, make the music more mystic and mysterious, giving to it a special, charming flavor, make this tracks extremely fresh and groovy.
Hard not to enjoy this! Maybe this is too “spiritual” for ordinary Metal fans, eventually too heavy for traditional Jazz listeners, but extremely tasty for open-minded music lovers and listeners, this is a hell of a trip to take and each and every single moment is bloody exciting!
