The swedish Progressive-Metal band Burst have managed to impress me a great deal with their newest effort "Lazarus Bird". In tradition of "modern" progressive Bands like Isis, Becoming The Archetype or The Ocean these Swedes have composed a truly epic album that combines so many different styles - making it very difficult to classify their music... -
We´ve got some Modern Metal,Post Hardcore, Death Metal,Doom, Progressive Metal, even some Free Jazz passages.
One might think: "oh hell no, not another over-ambitious group that´s trying to grab the listeners attention by combining weird musical genres...."
It turns out to be very different with these guys. Allthough, the extra-long songs, contain many breaks and eccentric passages, the album never loses coherence. Lazarus Bird is complex aswell as groovy and people who enjoy the bands I´ve mentioned above will surely love this record too.
So go and buy this album when it´s out!
