The Mad Violinist ft. Chris Morgan (The Symphony Crack Orchestra) - Battle Field

We’ve all watched enough Hollywood war scenes to know the general outline: strenuous training (with a workout montage, no doubt), hopeful reflection, and then, a major rally that leads into an epic battle. DJBooth premiere Battle Field, by The Mad Violinist and Chris Morgan of The Symphony Crack Orchestra, provides the perfect soundtrack to such a scene. While this track starts smooth and serene, it accelerates gradually with a combination of marching-style percussion and emotive crescendos, and fluctuates between slow and fast tempos. The Mad Violinist throughout showcases his adept quick performance technique and hard-hitting jazz violin style. A classical head-banger? Definitely, when rapid strings collide with Chris Morgan’s beats and culminates at the end in an adrenaline-filled saga. While slow to start, the sections add up nicely to the multi-faceted ending that is sure to prove you don’t always need lyrics to connect to an artist. And who needs words in a battle field scene when you have raw emotion? The all-instrumental track is the third release from The Addiction and is yet another glimpse at what we have to look forward to when the album drops August 1.

Notes: Premiere.  All instrumental song.  The Mad Violinist and Chris Morgan (The Symphony Crack Orchestra) collaborate on the newest release from the long-delayed album, due out this August.  Info:
