Burial in the Sky is a project made by the multi-instrumentalists duo, and longtime friends, Will Okronglis and James Tomedi in 2013. Since the formation the duo has released two EP’s with different drummers accompanying them and joining them on Persistence of Thought we have none other than world class drummer Samus Paulicelli (Decrepit Birth, ex-Abigail Wiliams). A very nice addition I have to say.
Persistence of Thought is what I would call Tech Metal done right as it’s intelligent, got both melodic sides to it but also raw and brutal segments that when you blend it together with great song-writing it becomes just something more than music. It becomes your transition into a whole other dimension and it’s just beautiful.
It is hard to pick just one song as my favorite song, since this is an experience meant to be experienced as a whole. I do find one thing easy though, to tell you to pick up this album. Today. Preferably yesterday.
