Jason Bittner's Burning Human to release album

If you've been following Jason Bittner´s monthly Drum Diary in Rhythm you will be aware of his side-project band, the pleasantly titled Burning Human. We can now confirm that the band´s new album, Resurrection Through Fire will be released on 20 April via E1 Music.

Resurrection Through Fire will feature an intense ten tracks of underground death metal. The album was tracked at The Recording Company in New York with Tim Lynch and Rick Sullivan and was produced and mixed by famed metal guitarist James Murphy (Obituary, Death, Testament, Disincarnate) at Florida´s SafeHouse Productions Studios. Resurrection through Fire´s artwork was designed by renowned metal artist Bjoern Goosses (Amon Amarth, Job for a Cowboy, Leng Tch'e, Zyklon).

On the album, Bittner comments, “After 10 years lying in a dormant state, I am quite excited about that fact that Burning Human is finally going to release Resurrection Through Fire with a proper label, and will back it with live dates [in the US]! This band really never got a proper chance way back in the day, due mostly in part to my constant search for a "touring band." Fast forward to 2009, and obviously my "touring band" desires are well taken care of with Shadows Fall, and since we won´t be busy until later this year, I now have some time to really dedicate myself to Burning Human. I'm extremely happy with this record. I'm really proud of the music and the performances and I hope the people out there will enjoy it as well!"
