Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio album by Sanguine Hum. "The Weight of the World" sees Sanguine Hum expand their musical horizons on all fronts with a seven-track collection of diverse compositions - technically challenging and exciting yet always melodic and direct. Songs such as "From the Ground Up" and "System for Solution" pursue the Porcupine Tree meets Radiohead approach of the debut record "Diving Bell" with powerful yet intricate riffs propelling the songwriting that continues to make ever more inventive use of surprising twists and turns in the arrangement. Surprises are to be found as well in the instrumentation as the band open up the sound and more explicitly reference a love of electronica and the music of artists such as Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin, best heard in the song "Day of Release" as synthetic percussion and rumbling synths give way to chiming acoustic guitar and a soaring vocal melody. Perhaps even more exciting for a band that perhaps held some of their Prog influences in check on their debut album, is the 15-minute title track that manages the task of combining effective and emotional songwriting with thrilling musical developments that push the band to the limit. "The Weight of the World" breaks new ground for a band at the forefront of truly "progressive" music. This special limited edition set Sanguine Hums new album also includes a DVD (Region Free / NTSC), "The Making of The Weight of the World" which follows Sanguine Hum as they prepare the ambitious follow-up to their acclaimed debut album, "Diving Bell". Filmed on location at Oxford's Evolution studios, this fascinating and revealing film delves into the complex processes that lay behind the construction of the bands challenging music. The documentary also captures Sanguine Hum's first recording session with new drummer Andrew Booker (from No Man). For fans of the band, this DVD is an essential glimpse into the world of modern progressive music making.
