Singularly gifted drummer/composer Mike Pride is prolifically active as a leader/accompanist in a wide variety of groups and genres: metal, noise, avant-garde rock, free music, and modern jazz. This May, AUM Fidelity presents two of the most profound and potent albums he has created to date. The 33-minute maximum intensity transformative epic Drummer’s Corpse was recorded within the same month as the diametrically opposed (in concept, content, and title) Birthing Days, and no pair of records better represent his multifarious artistic nature. Their simultaneous release is a major artistic statement from Mike Pride; together, they musically reflect the dichotomy of life itself. The other composition included here, “Some Will Die Animals,” is composed of a serialized tone row for double bass and a graphic score for guitar, bass drums, and tom-toms, and is dedicated to his late friend Gen Makino.

“Drummer Mike Pride has epitomized versatility for much of his highly prolific career thus far. With an almost unparalleled work ethic, great technical proficiency, and a healthy balance of the absurd and the dead serious, Pride has maintained a steady flow of compelling and innovative work.” — NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD

“There’s a lot stirring in the hidden recesses of Brooklyn, as new generations of players take the reins and throw preconceptions about genre and style to the wind. Foremost among these is percussionist Mike Pride, who’s earned his propers with heavyweight veterans and is becoming an ever more distinctive leader.” — SIGNAL TO NOISE
