Fire and the Wheel: Wheelbarrow de la Muerte
Fire and the Wheel is a band from Washington, D.C. who released on May their first self-titled album. Starting as a recording band, they had in mind to record a concept album inspired by Pink Floyd’s The Wall.
When listening to the LP you’ll notice that every song segues seamlessly into the next, musical melodies and themes recur here and there, and the arrangements feature prominent keyboards, horns, and vocal harmonies. The lyrics tell the true story of a friendship strained by pride and a mind afflicted by illness; neither ended well. (from the press-release)
When first playing the album, there is no words to exactly describe it, still, there wasn’t nothing that was telling us to stop playing it. Actually their intention might have been exactly don’t let listeners go.
The album is edited as digital download, c.d. and a special vynil edition.
