Back in the fall,


(by way of North Carolina)

vocalist Ben Burden

had me slide on over

to Classick Studios

to listen to a project

he had recently finished

called The Concrete Maze.

On first listen

with professional speakers,

I remember the project

arriving and departing

faster than I wanted,

with plenty of dense content

packed into an impressive

eighteen minute EP.

The production

from Benjamin Agresti

(who produced it all)

provides a stunning

backdrop for Burden

to run wild vocally,

switching it up

on every track.

To top it all off,

now that it is available

to the masses,

it comes complete

with a labyrinthine website,

which does nothing

but enhance the feeling

of being lost

while embracing

this unique release.
