Screaming Bones releases “And It’ll All Be Good”

“And It’ll All Be Good” is the most recent release of Mike’s project Screaming Bones, taking the listener even further into the rabbit hole of psychedelic soundscapes, sweet hypnotic flute tones and heavy guitar riffs.

The album has been developed throughout the year and has now been released on all the major streaming services as well as Screaming Bones’ Bandcamp site https://screamingbones.bandcamp.com/music

The album is the result of endless sound experiments, digging into the very nature of sound creation, sound enrichment and sound sculpturing. The album features classic guitar-dominated tracks such as”‘Ghost Ride” or “Leave me alone”.

But it also takes guitar sounds to a different level when sounds are repeated endlessly while being warped and twisted in crazy delay lines and dystopic reverbs as can be heard in tracks like “Dragonfly” or “Hive Song”.

While most of the sounds are created using a guitar or bass, some of the sonic canvasses borrow equipment from Mike’s side project “Bones:Dreaming”. Tracks like “Raindrops” or “Early Morning Brain Chaos” throw warped sound waves into the mix, some random, some in an orderly fashion, competing with Mike’s guitars.

The tracks on “And It’ll All Be Good” don’t have a common theme. However, each of their musical seeds has been born in a dream-like state and some of them have grown to sonic monsters that had to be tamed to create repeating patterns and themes that take the listener onto a musical journey they have not taken before.

‘“And It’ll All Be Good” is not an album to listen to in the background. It demands your time and your concentration, it asks for your brain and your soul to listen to it. The tracks on it want to be discovered, they want to be absorbed, they want to grow into the listener’s ears. The music on this album is a hidden gem, a flower, a tree that grows a bit more every time you listen to it. What seems like random chaos at first becomes a warped melody of an unreal beauty.

Screaming Bones’ music exists to fill your headspace. It will take you on an endless journey if you are willing to let yourself immerse into the music. The music will touch something deep inside you when you listen to it and let it unfold.
