Steve Roach, Byron Metcalf, Dashmesh Khalsa
2010 Dr. BAM's Music DBM006 (CD)
Reviewed by New Age Retailer
The essential ingredients of ancient and contemporary shamanic trance states are fully activated in this highly potent new release. Byron carved out a collection of incredible trance grooves for nearly a year, eventually bringing in the prana-infused didgeridoo of Dashmesh Khalsa on every track. Steve joined on in early January 2010 and poured his heart and soul-drenched soundworlds into the six pieces, covering a full range of ecstatic dreamtime flow: rhythm, breath and expansion. The end result is a full-blown dreamtime alchemy of all the elements. The living, breathing percussion, didgeridoo and soundworlds are unified in a single purpose: to open to the door out of the ordinary world, initiating the listener into an empowered journey of infinite possibilities for spiritual rebirth, illumination, and transcendence.

|A Warning From the Elders|
2007 Dr. BAM's Music (CD)
In this latest solo project, Byron expands his sonic explorations of the shamanic path of soul-based and heart-centered living that is the foundation of his work. This work is centered around organic trance rhythms and interlocking hybrid grooves which drive the experience forward and deeper into the shamanic realms. A WARNING FROM THE ELDERS is the first project where Byron has used his overtone singing to create harmonic drones and soundscapes. With this potent emphasis on the raw, organic sounds of wood, skin, metal, clay, stone, and the human voice, Byron makes a big step forward in his production skills and the result is a delicious blend of fierce percussion, heart-opening textural voices and overtone singing; a powerful meditation of purpose, presence and compassion.

Byron Metcalf (with Steve Roach)
2001 Dr. BAM's Music DBMCD 002 (CD)
Byron Metcalf's new solo CD, featuring Steve Roach on several tracks, is available for a limited time. Cut from a similar fabric as disc one of THE SERPENT'S LAIR. This intense tribal percussion-heavy journey is not for the faint at heart, and while the word "shamanic music" gets used freely now, this is to be considered the real deal. It's a more stripped down sound from THE SERPENT'S LAIR, with various drums and percussion, didgeridoo and soundscapes combined for a powerful result.
