We were on the ball in reporting this a few months ago, but if you missed it, there’s a newsflash: Burnt By the Sun has reunited to record one final album! Apparently, after Dave Witte and Mike Olender heard some of the material that Jon Adubato and Ted Patterson had been recording after they left, they were simply compelled to rejoin with them and make one last record together. Witte has been having great success playing drums for the incredible Municipal Waste during the last few years, and it’s not like he really needed to go back to BBTS. So, with that in mind, I’m predicting that this is some of BBTS’s most incredible material to date. Right now, this world needs more BBTS, and I’m hoping that their final album, Heart of Darkness, will help earn and solidify the prestigious place in the history of hardcore and metal that they rightly deserve.

Burnt by the Sun ascend from their own smoldering ashes; new demo posted!

Can any of us really believe that it has already been 5 years since our friends in Burnt By The Sun presented us with some new music? If you’re not aware of the last several years of breakup rumors and lengthy member searches, forget about it; there’s no need to be sad, because as far as you’ll ever know, all is well in the realm of BBTS. The band is back, revitalized and more determined than ever; and they just posted a new demo called “F-UNIT” online from their forthcoming album Heart Of Darkness!

Although they has been pretty quiet for the half a decade, audibly the band really hasn’t lost any steam. In fact, it would even be hard to say that the rest of the metal scene has caught up with Burnt By The Sun at all during the last few years. I’m still spinning Soundtrack to the Personal Revolution  and The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good quite often, and in all honestly, they sound more progressive (and awesome!) than 90% of the metal that’s been released since they dropped their last album. Personally, I can’t wait for the new release any sooner. The new track reunites us with with the BBTS we all remember and love exactly where we left off – feeling scared for our lives.
