Based in Northern Colorado, Earth Burnt Black is an amalgam of sound, never content to repeat itself. They shun the current trends and the "more-metal-than-thou" attitude associated with a lot of growing metal bands. They don't attempt to be the darkest, the fastest or the most extreme. They don't rely on an image, or anti-image to show who they are, instead preferring to let their music explain w...ho they are. The easiest way to classify they is simply to call them heavy.
Lacking easy classification hasn't stopped them from gaining fans and building a reputation as a tight and explosive live act. Whether opening or headlining, with a month of preparation or 48 hours, Earth Burnt Black lives on stage and holds back nothing. In 2011 they will release A HARROWING CATHARSIS, their debut album, a genre defying concept album that will drop jaws and get people talking even more. (Earth Burnt Black spent 2009 and early 2010 performing, touring and releasing material as Last Tragedy, they have won the respect of fans, bands from all over the country and are a recognized of the Colorado music scene, having played with dozens of CO's finest.)
"On their latest CD "Harrowing Catharsis", Colorado band Earth Burnt Black cracks open your chest plate with an iron fist of sludgecore lunacy in epic proportions. The mountainous rumble transcends into scorched rhythms, dynamic song structures and haunting bass lines as the tormented death growl and calming clean vocal seemlessly play off each other as if in a battle between good and evil. As intended, this album is to be listened to in it's entirety and the band wants each listener to take away something different from this atmospheric, devastating, and thought-provoking 54-minute concept album. Check this one out for sure!"
