BURNING HUMAN, the resurrected death metal band featuring SHADOWS FALL drummer Jason Bittner, will perform at Valentine's (17 New Scotland Ave.) in Albany, New York on Saturday, July 19. Also scheduled to appear are THE FINAL SLEEP, CRIMSON MASK and RUINATION.BURNING HUMAN last year posted another newly recorded song, entitled "Chemical Experimentation", on its MySpace page. The track comes off the group's forthcoming debut album, "Resurrection through Fire", which was mixed by legendary guitarist James Murphy (OBITUARY, DEATH, TESTAMENT, DISINCARNATE, CANCER, KONKHRA). In the latter half of the 1990s, BURNING HUMAN was a deathcore/death metal four-piece from the "Capital District" region of New York (Albany, Troy, Schenectady). Ignited in 1995, BURNING HUMAN's lineup consisted of Bittner (currently in SHADOWS FALL, ex-STIGMATA, CRISIS) on drums, Jason Sunkes (currently in DEAD RABBITS, ex-STIGMATA) on guitar, Jay VanDervoort on bass, and Jonah Radaelli on vocals. Shortly after forming, BURNING HUMAN recorded and released a seven-song demo tape titled "Death is Mercy". These songs were later released on a compilation CD titled "We the People: A Compilation of Upstate NY's Hardest" with three other bands from the Troy/Albany, New York area (WAR-TIME MANNER, POLITICS OF CONTRABAND, DYING BREED). Although the band never issued a full-length album, a number of additional tracks were recorded and released on various compilation CDs, including a song called "Hazards to Humans" on a sampler titled "Capitol Punishment" in 1997. In addition, two songs "As Good As Dead" and "Tormented Mind" were featured on the "Frozen Dawn IV" compilation CD in 1998, and "Self-Inflicted Crucifixion" appeared on "United We Stand, Divided We Fall" in 1998. Video footage of Jason Bittner performing the BURNING HUMAN track "Tormented Mind" on June 22, 2007 can be viewed below.
