Intense and intricate jazz-rock, with some Zeuhl, avant-garde, fusion, and symphonic moments, including great saxophone soloing and percussion work.
Birds and Buildings
Bantam to Behemoth
Released in: USA
"Birds and Buildings is a project by multi-instrumentalist Dan Britton (Cerebus Effect, Deluge Grander) and the debut album Bantam To Behemoth mixes high-energy complex progressive rock with jazz-fusion music.
The music is mostly instrumental and to my ears leans more towards the fusion side of things. I noticed that playing comes more from the soul rather than being one of a technical nature. From the frenzied beginnings of Birds Flying Into Buildings, you know you're in for a musical adventure of epic proportions This song has a wild yet beautifful saxophone part. This is also my favorite along with "Tunguska" on the album. I would go on to say that both songs shows the band's signature sound in many ways.
Dan was kind enough to send me this but he wasn't sure I would like it. Well Dan, I do like it... very much so! I've been exploring music for a while now and it pleases me when such a amazing album comes across my path. I would recommend fans of the adventurous side of progressive rock, especially King Crimson, Anglagard, and Magma, to get the debut album "Bantam to Behemoth" by Birds And Buildings ASAP!"-Ron Fuchs, Prognaut
