As if we needed another reason to adore Basick Records, they’ve announced today that they’ve signed instrumental prog metal band Blotted Science. If you aren’t familiar with this band, then take a peek at this short bio and get excited:
Featuring the insanely talented guitarist/evil genius Ron Jarzombek (WATCHTOWER, TERRESTRIAL EXILED, SPASTIC INK), bassist Alex Webster (CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE ETERNAL), and new arrival, drummer Hannes Grossmann (OBSCURA, TERRESTRIAL EXILED) – “The Animation of Entomology” is described as “a cross between CANNIBAL CORPSE, SPASTIC INK, and a Bugs Bunny cartoon.”
Having experimented with writing complex pieces of music to sync up with movie sequences in the past with his previous outfit SPASTIC INK, the concept has now been applied to BLOTTED SCIENCE over the course of seven songs and a total of 24 minutes of music, taking Jarzombek’s fascination with animated cartoons and creepy crawlies to a whole new level.
This band is seriously awesome. One of the songs on their new EP, “Cretaceous Chasm,” was scored to a scene from the 2005 King Kong remake. Check it out!
Tell me that doesn’t blow your mind. Go ahead.
The Animation of Entomology sees a Basick release November 28th!
