Bang Ur... Video!! youtu.be/gBv6fqprMg4
"This is a band that uses some very progressive structures and extremely talented musicians to create a really innovative and interesting sound." ( Matt Baggins at Two Guys Metal Reviews twoguysmetalreviews.blogspot.com/2012/12/byzant-at-sunset.html?spref=fb
"If you have ever looked for anything novel, it’s right in the contents of this EP. The blend of dubstep born bass drops, elevator music, and all things Mike Patton intrigues the senses and demands replay after replay to hear something new each time. Furthermore, Bang Ur Head offers great execution from all of the instrumental counterparts and, despite the initial sense of chaos, it really comes out to be a cohesive work." (Desiree Brown for Sound And Motion Magazine soundandmotionmagazine.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/ep-review-byant-at-sunset-bang-ur-head/
An American guitarist, an Italian saxophonist and a singer/keyboard player from East Europe joint their forces to bring to the surface this project. They never met face-to-face, this project was build up through the wire - on the internet. A true story to tell to your grandsons!
The three members of this project are living on different continents, they never been in the same room, not even in the same country ever, but they are playing together. This is an exclusively "via internet" (on-line) collaborative-creative project. One proof of the positive effect and impact of Globalization and technology over humanity. Although they never had the opportunity and pleasure to playing together in the rehearsal room, this music sounds very alive, very fresh, raw and impossible to fit into any genre.
With hundreds of different roots back to classic music, Rock, Punk, Hardcore, Metal, Blues, Jazz, electronic music, and drawing inspiration from thousands of different bands and the flavors of world music, Byzant At Sunset break down walls and boundaries. This is a great blend of class and crass, fragrant aromas and putrid stench, rainbows and razor-blades.
An extended play (or EP) is a musical recording that contains more music than a single, but is too short to qualify as a full studio album or LP.
This is the second EP by Byzant At Sunset, a double EP actually, but this is really-really an ultra-mega-super extended play while the band delivered 9 original tracks (more then 44 minutes) and 10 plus 1 (hidden bonus) remixes - which are pounding more then 46 minutes.
Totally 95 minutes of music, it's definitively hell of an extended play!!
Words are meaningless, turn up your loudspeakers and play the music!!

FL Byzant - saxophone.
RP Byzant - guitars, keys, programming, mixing and mastering.

RP Byzant would like to thanks to: First and foremost I want to give thanks to the amazing talent, the liberating freedom, and the tolerant friendship that my other trans-global Byzant collaborators have given to me. Without them I would never have been inspired and driven so intensely to create this music, and certainly would never had worked so hard and joyously on it. Great thanks go to my wife, Ami, who ha always pushed me and encouraged me to create what I hear in my soul, not what the world is telling me to create. Thanks to all of my family and friends that have encouraged me to be myself, regardless of what any norm is. And of course, huge thanks to the forces that drive me to make music, breathe, and to create positivity in the universe.
AB Byzant would like to thanks to: FL Byzant; RP Byzant; MG Byzant; my partner, support, inspiration and soul-mate Carmen; my son David; Alex Tass; my family and close friends who always supported and encouraged me to do the things I do.
Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
