BLOTTED SCIENCE - THE MACHINATIONS OF DEMENTIA (2007)
Okay, okay... So it's not technically a "double feature", but this release is so chock-full of insane riffication that I literally had to split it into 2 parts to upload it. It's THAT meaty.
Blotted Science, much like fellow instrumental mind-fuckers Sleep Terror, play ultra-insane crypto-metal, heavy as fuck but also jazzy at times. Composed of Ron Jarzombek (Watchtower, Spastic Ink) on guitar, Charlie Zeleny (Behold...The Arctopus) on drums, and the mighty Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal) on bass, this tech-metal supergroup somehow manages to be larger than the sum of its parts. No vocals here, and none are needed. This is the epitome of "music-nerd" metal, completely baffling and impossible to comprehend.
I don't know how this disc slipped past my radar last year, but thanks to Aesop at Cosmic Hearse for bringing it to my attention. This shit seriously spun my dome.
