Burntfield are a progressive alternative rock band, whose music is discreetly spiced with a taste of AOR and hard rock elements. Reliance on strong melodies and powerful harmonies form the basis of their versatile songwriting. By mixing vintage and modern they create unique musical atmospheres.
Burntfield was founded in 2012 by guitarist-singer Juho Myllylä in Helsinki. After a few line-up changes, the band have now found a new home in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.
In 2013, Burntfield’s debut EP Organic Waves was released, followed by the single release Let It Die Away in 2014 and the EP Cold Heat in 2015. 2016 saw a tour of the Netherlands and furthermore the release of the single and music video My Grief. 2017 was spent working patiently on their debut album, Hereafter, which was released in May 2018 on Progressive Gears Records, embraced with positive reviews by the press and the radio alike.
It is a song that instantly reminds me of Anathema: melancholic and sensitive. Vocals of Juho are really very akin of those of Vinny Cavanagh. — The result is a beautiful yet polished product that will surely appeal to fans of Anathema. — A professional band that obviously aims for chart success.
