"Burnin' Thousands - What's Destined Shall BE CD"

"Burnin' Thousands newest release "What's Destined Shall Be," is a dark and brooding post hardcore/rock album. The instrumental bridges of the songs
are the best parts, with some sinister, melodic guitar riffs that play off against a deep bass line, as well as some of the hard and driving guitar work more typical of a straight-up rock album. This duality is seen best in the first song, "A Second Long," (One of the best tracks on the album) where
the melodies are both emotive and aggressive, thanks especially to the smooth time changes in the drumming, which allow the two styles to really blend into one another.

What sets this band
apart from similar artists though is their technical skill: they may have a sound very similar to other bands, but they can play it better than many of these others can. Overall, if you're into the whole post hardcore/rock sound
I would definitely recommend you check this out..." - AbsolutePunk.net

"Burnin' Thousands - What's Destined Shall Be CD"

Ever since Wayne and Garth said the infamous words in “Wayne’s World”—“I’m in Delaware”—most haven’t had any sort of interest to venture to the state who makes its living by being a state on the way to New York City. Well Delaware’s Burnin’ Thousands has something to say about all those stereotypes. Kicking down the door with a melodic post-hardcore sound and a singer who can croon among the best in the biz, “What’s Destined Shall Be” just might be destined to bring the masses to Delaware if but to just see a band. Zero Velocity Records was correct in pumping up this band and putting them on their accomplished roster. After all they’ve already had plenty of hardcore exposure while working with hardcore’s king of publicity and showcases, Rick ta Life in his band Comin’ Correct. Of course they also toured with hardcore legends Earth Crisis, Agnostic Front, Murphy’s Law, Skarhead, and Hatebreed. The guitars just wail on their debut for Zero Velocity and are matched with the nasally voiced vocals that jump between screech and whining singing. Delaware’s hardcore/rock scene will never be the same.

Feeling a bit camera shy


The year is 1995. Local Delaware hardcore band My Body My Blood forms with Mark Palese on guitar, Ryan Jones on bass and Derek Mcginley on drums. The band creates a stir on the Delaware Hardcore scene, releasing two CD’s and playing numerous gigs, catering mainly to the all-ages hardcore/punk scene. In 1998, the band is featured on “A Call for Unity: Hardcore Worldwide”, a Back Ta Basics Records release.

In 1999 My Body My Blood disbanded. Mark and Ryan join up with NYC Hardcore veteran Rick Ta Life in his band Comin’ Correct. For two and a half years they tour heavily across Europe, and the Northeastern US, and release a world-wide acclaimed album on Triple Crown Record. Mark and Ryan gain the experience of billing with such acts as Agnostic Front, Hatebreed, Kittie, Skarhead, Murphy’s Law, and Earth Crisis. Throughout this experience, Mark and Ryan dream of starting their own band- something with the energy of Comin’ Correct and My Body My Blood, but with more room for melody and passion, some kind of new creation…

Burnin’ Thousands was formed in 2001 as the culmination of Mark and Ryan’s idea for a new musical direction. To make this post-hardcore creation work, Mark transferred his astonishing guitar talent to vocals. The duo brought in Dave Feldhouse to play guitar and My Body My Blood alum Derek on drums. With their focus on writing inventive new songs, and perfecting their live act, the new band entered Clay Creek Studios in Newark, Delaware in 2002 with the help of producer Nick Rotundo (boysetsfire, paint it black) they record “The Last Day Of July E.P.”.

In 2004, we find Burnin’ Thousands back in the hands of producer Nick Rotundo at Clay Creek recording their debut album for Zero Velocity Records. The album is entitled “What’s Destined Shall Be”. The album is 6 brand new songs of what makes Burnin’ Thousands such a unique and uncompromising rock band. Not since post-hardcore crossovers Into Another has the world seen such a remarkable band like Burnin’ Thousands. They are the true definition of rock. Listen for yourselves….
