about

This is the first new music released by Baliset since 2009's A Time For Rust.

It is a prelude to a longer concept album due out in 2014.

The three songs show Baliset’s growth and development as songwriters over the last few years. Opening track “Moon And River” is a dense rock song with distinct movements which calls to mind 70’s prog rock.

Countering the bombast of the opening track, “Ever A Relentless Tide” is a moody acoustic ballad which is built with subtle mellotron choirs, ambient drums, and Morricone-esque guitars.

Rounding out the EP is “Colour” which is a folk-influenced Zeppelin-like rocker set to a stomping drum beat with grooving bass lines, soaring vocals, and blistering guitar work.

Baliset will be donating $2 from each of the first 500 copies sold to Manes and Motions, a non-profit therapeutic riding center in Middletown, CT started by Jerri Massi, Greg's mother.

Manes and Motions is a program designed to help people of all ages from children with learning disabilities to war veterans suffering from PTSD. Please help us with our goal of donating $1000 to help the program grow.
