If you love Angels and Airwaves, U2, Coldplay, you'll dig Bunker Soldier!

Bunker Soldier, an underground electronic music pioneer since 1994, releases his first full length cd since 1999. "The Debris Field" takes his music in a new direction as this cd is the result of 6 months of hard work at the Panhandle House Studios in Denton, Texas with producer Erik Herbst. Erik produced Bunker's EP "Triple Threat." That cd received rave reviews for its' production. "The Debris Field" is a magical audioscape and is flawless in its' production, also. Each song will grab you in with a hook and leave you eagerly anticipating with what's next around the corner. Elements of U2, Coldplay, Moby, Paul Van Dyk and of course, OMD, are found throughout the songs. Bunker Soldier is well known for his hard hitting industrial dancefloor anthems. This cd tends to walk the fine line between synthpop and powerpop. He has never hesitated mixing styles or musical genres since 1996 when he dabbled in hip hop and techno. "The Debris Field" is his best work to date, showcasing his ability to write catchy songs and showing that he is about to break through the underground once and for all.

The Purple Note Radio Network

It's a beauty! A good, solid release.
A good, solid release. On par with Triple Threat. I added Darkness Falls, Close The Door, Disappoint and the new version of Flying to the Escape From Noise Radio Show playlist. But DISAPPOINT is going into the POWER HIT ROTATION! -David Vesel - 10PM Sat. nights.

Grave Concerns E-Zine

Superbly produced and incredibly polished. A synthpop opus.
With a band name taken from an OMD song, it is not surprising that this latest offering from Bunker Soldier, aka Tim Tyran, is a synth pop opus. From roots and history as diverse as rave and industrial music comes this incredibly polished and commercial offering. The Debris Field, a name taken from the wreckage left after a plane crash, follows the tradition of its predecessors in using a wide variety of guest vocalists to great effect. The first three tracks feature Les Farrington, who adds his oddly British-sounding tones to the mix, bringing to mind the sounds of the Lightning Seeds. Hildegunn Gjedrem Surdal reprises her previous involvement with the project, adding her lustrous vocal vibes to a selection of tracks. “Drive me Home’ and “Full Circle’ are her moments of triumph on this album, at times evoking memories of Ireland’s The Corrs. As each vocalist is introduced to listener though, the sound seems to subtly shift in direction. By the time Tanya Michelle enters on the dark trip-hop
number, ‘Disappoint’ and the eastern flavours of ‘Infection’ one is almost forced to question the focus of the album and its status as a coherent product. None of the tracks are particularly poorly written or executed, in fact; on the contrary, this is superbly produced, with a well-defined commercial-friendly air to it. The changes in vocalists though are perhaps the album’s downfall. Just as one becomes comfortable with the vibe a particular singer brings, the vibe changes. For me, Tyran should choose one and stick with them, with my vote going to Tanya Michelle.

POPoNAUT - Germany

Absolutely recommended!
Behind the American project "Bunker Soldier" Tim Tyran conceals himself. It's his fourth album and he was able to use the talents of 5 different vocalists, each bringing their own style and sound. So it comes to no surprise the album contains 5 different genres: synthpop, powerpop, pianopop, industrial and trance. Tim designates it as synthpowerpop. The listener can expect live drums with piano, sequencing and typical U2 style guitar. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED!


"The Debris Field" is simply awesome!
What a great CD, especially considering it's self-released. Mature songwriting and instrumention, song variety, all-around great stuff! My only complaint (wink, wink) is that I wish it was a double CD....

11th Records

I'm really impressed!
"The Debris Field" is totally pro all the way. I'm really impressed! -Brian Hazard / 11th Records

DJ De'Ath - Leeds, U.K.

A very catchy cd that will appeal to a wide audience of music lovers.
This is an unusual release from Bunker Soldier almost two seperate recordings in one. The opening 3 tracks have a 80's wave feel. It reminds of when there was an alternative music scene in the UK and there were some intelligent pop songs, instead of the mass dullness which has been spewed out over the last decade with the occassional beacon of light.
A quite individual male vocal is accompanied by a tight drum, bass, keyboard and guitars in the vein of Then Jericho , The Fountainhead , The Adventures and Simple Minds . 'Close The Door' is a great track. From track 4 it sounds like a different CD as the female vocal and a piano is used Drive Me
Home Full Circle could be the perfect pop song, with a killer hook. Disappoint has a Collide feel to it. Infection another catchy song with lots of interesting indian loops. Track 8 could be S- Express!!
Track 9 and 10 sees a return to the first part of the CD. Overall a very catchy CD which will appeal to a wide audience of music lovers.

Legends Magazine

Very well done and definitely a keeper.
Tim Tyran is back with his fourth release, breaking down more genre-defining walls and shitting on any semblance of pigeonholing. His past releases were all radically different, going from the rap-centric hip-hopish Quite a Dilemma[1] to the heavier industrial overtones of the old Innuendo[2], Tyran’s music has blasted across styles without much ado about nothin’. This time, The Debris Field brings us a softer side to Tim’s antics, with New Order and Backlash style synthetic movements, brilliant arrangement and a more mature, older and wiser Tim Tyran than we’ve ever known.

While Tim is the sole backbone of Bunker Soldier, he brings in lots of friends to mix things up. Les Farrington, for example, is one of five vocalists that takes on the first three, and thereafter tenth, track of The Debris Field. Les’ vocals are just scratchy enough to be interesting and just soft enough to be smooth. Much here on Debris Field is ballad based, slow but moving. Mixtures of synthpop, power ballad rock and EBM new wave mix together into well layered song structures drawn together with great vocals and solid engineering. The lyrics throughout The Debris Field is a bit non-chalant really, but the smoothness of the electronics and the ease at which they seem to come about makes up for any lack of high-brow verbiage.

The opening and chorus piano of Drive Me Home is simple but excellent. I love the vocals of Drive Me Home as well – Hildegunn Gjedrem Surdal provides them here and does a great job. Reminiscent of Bel Canto as is the following Full Circle, though this one applies some stronger guitar movements and steps up the BPMs a tad.

Disappoint reminds us of Tim’s underground finesse with darker beats and rhythms, harkening back to the Triple Threat[3] or Innuendo releases with his signature guitar riffs, sliding bass and veiled vocals. Infection has a similar vibe but comes out almost trip-hop with memories of Scarlet Life coming about. The pleasant piano is back in the final track, In Rose’s Garden. Slow and subtle male vocals from Lou Marini – if I were to pick a song from The Debris Field to make a music video with it would be In Rose’s Garden – the imagery of this one is sweet yet sad and is one of the most heartfelt on the album.

The end blathering on The Debris Field is that I was very surprised by what I found here. Having been listening to Bunker Soldier since the late 90s and having seen them perform live with all the energy and frantic nature of a hummingbird on crack, to find such smoothly layered ballads and synthpop music as on The Debris Field was completely out of left field. Unexpected, but it’s very well done and definitely a keeper. - Marcus Pan

It's kind of like looking back at a mirror and seeing who you were. . .
Reminiscent of 80's new wave, the Debris Field comes together as a melding of melodies from bands like the Call, Breeding Ground, OMD, Kate Bush, Gary Numan (listen to the keyboard on track 6) and more recent Madonna. It's Bunker Soldier's most refined effort yet.

Denton Record Chronicle

Tyran's music comes out soaring! Highly danceable, upbeat.
The album's 10 tracks are more of a throwback to Tyran's roots in 80's synthesizer-based music. It's highly danceable with an upbeat mix. The title refers to the remnants of a plane crash, but his music comes out soaring! Les Farrington sounds vaguely nasal, almost British. Hildegunn Gjedrem Surdal's rich voice is layered multiple times over itself. - Mariel Tam

Infectious Unease Radio Show - Australia

I am very impressed with the music, vocals and lyrics!
I will be playing this cd on my radio show in Melbourne, Australia next week. What can I say, I am very impressed with the music, vocals and lyrics. It is a different outlook of Bunker's music and I really enjoyed it. The lyrics and vocals painted a scene and the music created that image. - Gordon Taylor 96.5 FM
