OH HEY, BLOTTED SCIENCE AGAIN. They can’t stop being awesome it seems.

If you’ve ever wondered about how this instrumental death metal SOO PAH GROOP go about writing their music, you’d best scroll on down to the video below, where guitarist Ron Jarzombek runs through their 12-tone system:

“I’ve been mentioning this ’12-Tones In Fragmented Rows’ system in interviews and it seems that even non-musicians are interested in it, so I put together this video to give listeners some insight on how it all works.  I thought it would be best to break this all down into its most basic theoretical form, and play examples of its use. I chose to post the basic guitar tracks to ‘Cretaceous Chasm’ because it is the simplest song on the EP and is the easiest to grasp theoretically. The song will also  appear first on my upcoming instructional DVD, Dissecting Bugs, where I will go in-depth with all of the 12-tone theory, and play all guitar parts on all songs from the EP. Things do get a bit complicated when melodies and solos are laid on top of the note groups,  but we’ll get to all of that good stuff on the DVD.”


Definitely not the last time we’re going to be hearing from them either; don’t forget the creepy as all living balls videos they keep releasing.

If none of that meant anything to you, then go and check out the band’s new EP The Animation Of Entomology , which is out now via EclecticElectric and Basick Records. It’s boneriffic.
