Behind the Sun
Artist/Band: Behind the Sun
Behind the Sun are five musicians writing and performing heavy rock music. The band was formed on the edges of the vast Negev desert in the south of Israel. The music and lyrics on this disc speak of their personal trials and tribulations living in this heavenly but harsh land. This self titled debut album contains: heavy, electric, tube driven riffing, blended with progressive styles and sensibilities and their own skeptical, cynical, but in the end positive philosophy as written word and amplified sound.
The album contains 12 original works by the band, recorded over 2008 and released in 2009. The musicians: Gad Erez on vocals, Aaron Lieber on guitar, Dan Henry Levy on bass and Saar Gur on drums, were joined on this album by their producer Shai Yallin on keyboards and Assaf Kopelnikov on guitar. In addition, new BTS guitarist Yoram Allouche guests on the last track, "strong wind".
The music and the musicians themselves are influenced and inspired by 70s progressive rock, 90s grunge and modern heavy music including such diverse touchstones as The Who, Opeth, The Grateful Dead, King Crimson, Mastodon, Tool, Zeppelin, Alice in Chains, John Coltrane and Faith No More.
The lyrics were written by guitarist Aaron Lieber and vocalist Gad Erez and deal with, among other things, the breakdown of society, loss, decay, personal relationships gone down the tubes, corrupt leadership, world terrorism, first hand experience of the horrors of war, the sanctity of life, and anthropomorphic one night stands deep in the desert.
