[schema type=”review” name=”Burntfield – Hereafter” author=”Sabine van Gameren” pubdate=”2018-05-31″ ]Burntfield is a Finnish founded, now based in Netherlands, formation that makes Progressive Rock. We reviewed some work of them before and now we have the debut album in our hands. “Hereafter” is available now.
Burntfield has an album that seems quite calm at first but has a lot of passionate energy in it when you listen to the album a bit deeper. Give the album a couple more spins to get the full experience is our tip. That was you will discover the joy of the instruments brought together, we are suckers for some kantele, and the purpose of it is well served. Sometimes a slight hint to Imogen Heap crossed our mind, but in the album you mainly feel like you are listening to a story of Burntfield. The guys are slowly building their tensions and never going completely crazy but keep it all controlled. At the end of the song and the start of the next you often feel like simply turning the page, it suits together yet it is something new you will hear.
Some longer tracks like “What Remains” give some space for going back and forth but once again the modesty of it all is the strength of the album.
“Hereafter” is a release you want to listen to. And then we mean, actually listen. Not just background music, but listen with care. A fine release from these guys!
