Former Bury Your Dead guitarist Eric Ellis is reportedly planning to release his first full length album from federal prison sometime this fall. The album will be released under the Gevicht moniker and will be entitled "The Weight of Knowing," according to a posting on the project's YouTube channel.
Earlier this week we received an email, purporting to be from Ellis, which provided these details: Despite having been sentenced on racketeering charges, Ellis is planning public release of an entirely instrumental composition- riddled with complex odd time signatures and unconventional polyrhythms.
"This project began to take shape in my time off between Bury Your Dead tours. it went through many different forms as it evolved over the years... You (will) have the choice collection from that expanse... (for) those who can appreciate the precision and beauty of technical music, Gevicht is my legacy."
Ellis began his appeal process in June. Check out the YouTube channel for some clips here.
