BaK biography
BaK is a music entity comprised of two people in the vein of composers (think Andrew Lloyd WEBBER meets LED ZEPPELIN / QUEEN / BLACK SABBATH). A melting pot of music styles, BAK is orchestral rock infused with eastern scales, Arabic melodies and metal attitude. A grand and theatrical image is the way BAK's music presents itself.

All music and lyrics are comprised of original works written, composed and arranged by Beau and Kit (plus, Beau plays guitar/bass/bağlama; and Kit plays drums/percussion and keyboards/piano). Composition takes place in Sydney Australia. Recording involves the assistance of a fairly large and selected crew of session musicians including members of Symphony Orchestra's (strings; brass; woodwind), Opera/Choir, local ethnic musicians (middle Eastern/Indian), professional session musicians, singers and many more. Therefore at present BAK is a studio based project, although they have grand ambitions of performing their music in front of a live audience - "The way we see ourselves live however is with lots of the above people on stage (20 - 100+) - with full staging and lighting - a Rock spectacular".

BAK released its 10 tracks debut album "Sculpture" in April 2010, which caught on pretty quickly in the Progressive Metal community. The album features clear tendencies towards the eastern sounding soundscapes, which is why many fans have drawn a clear comparison to the Israeli progressive metal ORPHANED LAND.

Recommended to fans of eclectic Progressive Rock Metal with a pinch of mystery added to it. Who know, maybe the mystery behind the band's identity will make their music feel even more intriguing?

BaK Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Rune2000
Special Collaborator Prog Metal Team

4 stars BaK is what you get when you try to combine Middle Eastern and orchestral sounds together with arrangements of a traditional metal band. I've actually never been a big fan of this combination with the two Orphaned Land albums being my prime connection with the style. But unlike the Middle Eastern bands who incorporate sounds of the traditional metal into their style, BaK is (from what I can tell) actually an Australian act who does the reverse of just that. Whether this is something that would appeal more to the western audience is of course debatable but I personally found it a bit easier to get into the groove of this release.

Another interesting fact is that I've been listening to this album for almost three month now and I'm still discovering new details in it's sound that I was completely oblivious to in the early days. Some small snippet here and there is one thing but when I completely managed to ignore the underlying keyboard arrangements is quite weird. Just like the best film scores are the ones that conveniently place themselves in the background in order to make the audience concentrate their attention on the movie in front of them, there is clearly an intention behind this layering technique that BaK so adequately have demonstrated.

If I had to mention anything that I found less appealing then it would be the lack of a total dedication of the band to their style. Yes, the instruments are all in place and sound appropriate enough, but somehow I still can't get past the feeling that the whole oriental sound is merely a gimmick from the collective. I might of course be proven wrong after BaK starts releasing one studio album after the other where they enhance their sound even more. Other than that I really can't think of any other criticism regarding this release, making it easily one of the most ambitious debuts of the decade! Having said that I just realized that I know practically nothing about this mysterious Australian act so, for all I know, it could be comprised of a supergroup formation featuring members from many established bands. But that's just my bitter speculation considering the high quality of the music and production of this release!

BaK have certainly sculptured an excellent debut that the band can be proud of for years to come. If anything, I would be amazed if the collective can recreate the same quality on their future releases, but that is left to be seen. As for now, I highly recommend Sculpture to fans of eclectic metal music or anyone who is tired of the regular metal scene and is looking for new engaging music to sink their teeth into!
