When Mason guitarist Grant Burns approached me to do his publicity photos for his new solo album, I of course agreed and put it to Grant… “How about we release a vinyl seven inch single through Rue Morgue Records as well?”
After a hushed meeting in the confines of the Reverence Hotel, where Grant’s immediate future was discussed, plotted and planned – and over a couple of drinks and a shake of the hands – Grant Burns was now part of the Rue Morgue Records Label. And boy are we proud of that!
A little about Grant…
Technical guitar work and acrobatic fretboard work utilising an array of techniques, Grant Burn’s proficiency with tapping, legato hybrid picking, sweep and alternate picking has lead Grant to land gigs alongside greats such as Opeth, Children of Bodom, Annihilator, Mayhem, Hate Eternal.
With national and international tours and 8 releases with Mason, Vespers Descent, Darkenium and Watercolour Ghosts, Grant is set to release his first solo album Chaos in Design.
Chaos in Design is a progressive journey driven by precisely executed rhythm guitars and intertwined with fusion laden lead guitars summoning masterful melodies and intricate guitar work. Drawing from fusion and metal influences such as Brett Garsed, Alex Akolnick, Alex Hutchings, and James Murphy, Burns creates a modern guitar style to deliver a unique progressive musical journey.
Grant will be releasing his seven inch single Chaos In Design through Rue Morgue Records with an exclusive B side not available anywhere else. This promises to be a very special release. Look for more info very, very soon!
