Finland have been strangely absent from my 2015 reviews round-up this year. Not many have made my list, but hopefully that will soon change. In the meantime, along come a new Finnish band called Burntfield, who offer up a variety of songs on their recent EP 'Cold Heat'. Formed in 2012, this is the band's third recording; with an EP an single preceding it. As mentioned, the term 'variety' is the name of the game here. Perhaps too much so, as Burntfield may develop a case of multiple personalities before too long.

The Songs
As an opener, 'Deal With It' grinds away with an organ back-base and a slower than normal tempo. It has a pure classic rock sound, while the following 'Q&A' is something different altogether, and at 8 minutes in length is probably longer than it should be. It doesn't quite hit the mark for mine, a bit ponderous, and despite showing anger signs at the 5 minute mark, it needed to show more of that aspect rather than the labourious middle ground on display. Again, variety being the operative word, 'Under The Dome' appeals as the most unique offering. There's a bit of everything here, though at the end of the day, I'm not quite sure what to make of it. Finishing up with 'How Lucky', again the tempo is slow enough it could very well send you to sleep. However, the track is melodic, different, 70's styled prog in parts, plus it has a nice synth solo to boot, which keeps interest levels up.

In Summary
The difficultly for Burntfield is locking down to a certain style. This is too 'all over the place'. I preferred the last track 'How Lucky' over the other three tracks, and if the band place themselves into the prog bracket, things coud get interesting for them. However, the prog scene is very harsh and snobby for the most part, and I doubt they would survive too long if that was the direction they went. 'Cold Heat' suggest that at least they have a few options to choose from.
