The Shaman's Heart
Byron Metcalf (with Steve Roach)
2005 Dr. BAM's Music DBM003 (CD) – 2010 Digipak re-release
Reviewed by Frank MacEowen, Hypnos Forum, Wind and Wire

This is a powerful and unique rhythmic and soundworld trance experience based on the traditional structures of shamanic drumming used for altering states of awareness. The entire journey is built using a collection of buffalo drums, frame drums and rattles. Presented as a continuous, unfolding rhythmic state, starting with lone peyote rattles and evolving into mandala-like polyrhythmic bliss. Through it all is a shapeshifting undercurrent of essential soundworlds specifically provided to create support for the intrepid inner traveler. This is unlike any of the solo or collaborations from Byron and Steve.

Byron Metcalf: Buffalo drums, bear & peyote rattles, udu & clay pot, frame drums, hybrid toms, various shamanic percussion (seed pods, beads, shells, pottery & stone), spirit winds, hoasca sounds.

Steve Roach: Analog and digital soundworlds, didgeridoo, ocarinas. (Additional shamanic percussion on track 5.)

Produced, Recorded, Mixed & Mastered by Byron Metcalf at The Lair, Prescott, Arizona. Ravens and other nature sounds recorded by Byron Metcalf. Steve's parts recorded at The Raven's Nest, Tucson, Arizona.
