A quartet based out of Santa Cruz, Ca; A Burning Water was formed in the winter of 2000 and is a mixture of Indie, Post-Hardcore and Rock. Their music is a mix of intensity, melody, emotion, harmony and energy. "We can see the sky from here" is the band?s debut and a few tunes are really good like "So much you hide" and "A passing wish" while others are too non-melodic like an overdose of screamopunk. This 10 track album also contains 3 instrumental atmospheric pieces - "Introduction","The instrumental" and "Echoes in the alcove" which all features some cool swirling guitarwork. Talk about ups and downs on each and every song,it should?ve been more ups!
During 2001, before the band´s third release, the members of HIM (His Infernal Majesty) formed a new band called Daniel Lioneye. This was intended as a solo project of guitarist Linde, who took on the vocal spot and the stage name Daniel Lioneye for it. Migé Amour played bass, Ville Valo was on drums, with Hiili on keyboards, and Ike on sound effects. They released two albums, ´The King of Rock´n Roll´, in September 2001, and ´Vol. II´ in April 2010.
