Originally formed in 2009 by bassist Dan Berglund (formerly e.s.t.), guitarist Johan Lindström (Per Texas Johansson), pianist Martin Hederos (Soundtrack Of Our Lives) and drummer Andreas Werliin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums), Swedish super-group TONBRUKET (‘tone workshop’) have created another masterpiece with their second outing “Dig it to the end”.
Although their eponymous debut album was a concept album as well, with “Dig it to the end” they define their unique band sound and style even further and carve out their musical niche combining instrumental prog-rock with improvisational elements. The album title “Dig it to the end” refers to the compositional and the recording process. “We went the extra mile to really carve out the songs and compositions. It was like shuffling earth to excavate the true heart, meaning and soul of each song”, explains Johan Lindström, who with six songs to his name was again the most active composer. “But then you are also free to interpret it as an invitation to really listen carefully to all songs. It is worth it”, he adds with a twinkle.
The basic tracks were laid down in Stockholm´s Atlantis Studio. From there they took the tapes to Johan Lindström´s Hammarby Studios and over a few weeks refined, edited, mixed and added to reach the ultimate result.
