Gilmore Trail

June 2nd, 2015 / Comments Off on Gilmore Trail / by Mog/

Gilmore Trail Profile

Gilmore Trail is a 4-piece instrumental rock band based in Sheffield, UK, consisting of Sam Ainger on drums, David Ivall and Danny Mills on guitar and Joe Richards on bass. The band is named after a trail in Alaska – a route recommended for best experiencing the Northern Lights. Their music has a post-rock edge, with a mix of influences including Sigur Ros, Oceansize, Explosions in the Sky, God is an Astronaut, This Will Destroy You, and Pink Floyd.

They recorded their first EP – “Circle of Least Confusion” – in October 2011 at 2Fly Studios in Sheffield, where the debut albums by The Arctic Monkeys and 65daysofstatic were also recorded. This lead to repeated airplay on BBC Radio Sheffield, a feature in Exposed Magazine’s In Session section, and they were also featured in the “Breaking Bands” section of the Soundnet digital jukeboxes installed around the UK.

Their debut album – “Sailing Stones” – was also recorded at 2Fly Studios. It expands on the themes and groundwork laid by the first EP, whilst furthering their sonic reach. Gilmore Trail songs are long and fluid, at times crashing over the barrier like waves on the shore, at others rolling gently over the Peak District hills. The softer sections have the crowd drifting off into a pleasant trance, before the frantic, heavy interludes crush those dreams and summon images of swirling blizzards and stormy nights. It’s perfectly balanced, brilliantly executed and very impressive.” __[ Exposed Magazine ].

Hidden By The Leaves [ REVIEW ] By Merchants Of Air

01. Internal Alchemy or Neidan – is an array of esoteric doctrines and physical, mental, and spiritual practices that Taoist initiates use to prolong life and create an immortal spiritual body that would survive after death. Internal alchemy combines theories derived from external alchemy (Waidan), correlative cosmology, the emblems of the Yijing and medical theory with techniques of Daoist meditation, daoyin gymnastics, and sexual hygiene. Fundamental treatises on Neidan were created by Wei Boyang – famous Taoist of II century, who has reached immortality, according to legends.

02. Utopia – is a work of fiction and political philosophy by Thomas More (1478–1535) published in 1516 in Latin. The book is a frame narrative primarily depicting a fictional island society and its religious, social and political customs. Title of this book has come to mean something ideal, but fantastic & impossible to reach, a dream. Now it is a nominal term for the entire genre.

03. Also Sprach Zarathustra – is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885 and published between 1883 and 1891. Much of the work deals with ideas such as the “eternal recurrence of the same”, the parable on the “death of God”, and the “prophecy” of the Übermensch, which were first introduced in his work “The Gay Science”.

04. Hidden By The Leaves or Hagakure – is a practical and spiritual guide for a warrior, drawn from a collection of commentaries by the samurai Yamamoto Tsunetomo. The book records Tsunetomo’s views on bushido, the warrior code of the samurai. Hagakure is sometimes said to assert that bushido is really the “Way of Dying” or living as though one was already dead, and that a samurai must be willing to die at any moment in order to be true to his lord. His saying “the way of the warrior is death” was a summation of the willingness to sacrifice that bushido codified.

05. Bardo Thodol – is the fundamental work of Buddhism literature, which many of us know as the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Contains a detailed description of the state-stages (bardo), through which, according to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, passes human consciousness since the process of physical death and before the next incarnation in a new form. For each stage are given specific recommendations. This book associated with certain tantric practitioners of the Nyingma Tibetan Buddhism school.

Afformance Profile

Afformance started jamming on original ideas in 2005. Next year found them playing in Greek stages around the country gaining very enthusiastic reviews from press and fans. It didn’t took long until their first appearance on international stage, in Switzerland to be exact, when they were invited to perform at the 2nd Golden Mt Zion Festival. After a small pause and sporadic shows, they tour Greece with the Italian band The Mantra Above The Spottless Melt Moon and Dear Serotonin (now- Calf), and later the same year they release their debut full length titled “A Glimpse To The Days That Pass”.

The 500 hand-painted CDs didn’t took long to sold out. A cassette edition crafted with exactly the same spirit came out a couple years later. 2010 finds them with new bassist, and very present on the stages once again, including a support gig at Grails’ show in Athens and a short tour in Greece and Turkey with Nechayevschina. After some line up changes and one small break, they hit the stage again on September 2012, opening for Maybeshewill getting raving reviews, and shortly after they get commissioned to write original score music for the dance theater performance “The Place”, which was also released on 12″ vinyl.

A tour-CD edition was also released for their European tour on April-May 2013 that took them to the stage of the genre-classic Dunk! festival in Belgium, where they appear next to pg Lost, iLikeTrains, Maserati, Toundra, Kokomo, Dorena (with which they also play in Greece after the tour), Labirinto, Syndrome and many more. In November of the same year they digitally release “Affection” which serves as a compilation of older unreleased tracks and new remixes by friends and the band themselves. In mid-2014 they start recording the album that was meant to become “Through Walls”. An album with some songs that were present through the band’s history for over 5 years now and have been trialed on stage and matured with the band themselves. It is finally released on June 1st 2015 on CD and digital formats through Catch The Soap Productions, just like all their previous works.
