Steam Theory is pleased to announce the January 19th release date for Asunder, its most ambitious recording to date. Composed, performed and recorded by Jason Denkevitz, the album combines Orchestral, Progressive Rock, Metal, and Jazz Fusion musical styles. Available as a double cd digipak from Cdbaby.com, Asunder is also available as a digital release from Bandcamp, Cdbaby.com, iTunes, Amazon-Mp3, Spotify, Rhapsody, Google Music Store, and other online music services beginning January 19th, 2015.
The album represents a different direction from 2012's Helios Rider album, with a focus on larger arrangements incorporating heavy use of orchestral instrumentation, often in lieu of traditional keyboard parts. Attempting to fuse several genres together, the goal was to maintain a priority on strong themes and melodies. Employing heavily syncopated drumming, electric and acoustic guitars, fretted and fretless bass, rhodes keyboard and orchestral string and horn arrangements, the album includes 13 songs totaling over 85 minutes of music.
" As a whole, the album is a great collection of prog that features some other excellent tangents, altogether well played and put together." - 4/5 stars - Kelvin W. ProgArchives.com Review.
"Very refreshing to hear great new music like this" "Brilliant stuff here..." - Stuffer White, Host of Light Without Heat (http://lightwithoutheat.info/)
