UK band Blueneck bring their trademark sense of melancholy mood
and melody to a new instrumental project called "Epilogue", due for
worldwide release on Denovali records in October 2012. Typically
known for the distinctive haunting vocals of mainman Duncan
Attwood, "Epilogue" takes a deliberately different approach. Inspired
by Attwood's recently commissioned solo work on soundtracks for
independent films, not to mention the influence of inspirational
composers and soundscapers such as Brian Eno Air, John Carpenter and Clint Mansell, this Brian Eno, Air, John Carpenter and Clint Mansell, this
vocal-free release is the soundtrack to an (as yet) imaginary film. Epilogue" follows a trio of critically-acclaimed
full length albums (2006's Scars of the Midwest; 2009's The Fallen Host ; 2011's Repetitions).
Attwood says "Epilogue" is intended as both the start and end of a number of distinct creative periods. It's a bookend to our three previous full-length vocal albums, a statement of intent on our parallel soundtrack work, and a means of clearing our collective minds before we started work on our new recording. It's our intention that the Blueneck you hear in the future will be markedly different to what you hear on this release". The band are currently working on the release of their fourth full-length vocal album, as yet untitled, due for release on Denovali in 2013.
