“Into the laboratory of prog animation”

There were many times that I believed EPs have a strong reason of existence and this because sometimes they can offer your greater moments than some full – lengths. There are hundred EPs whose prize can touch our hearts by the first listening.

Firstly, right now I am addressing to the lovers of technical – prog metal, you can call it however you wish. Of course the others whether you can stay and keep reading or not, but if you do and go to listen to this EP after it, you will not get disappointed. But you will need a lot of listening on a try to keep in mind only one riff.
I guess most of you know Ron Jarzombek, from the Gods Watchtower, who apart from this band has also created and other recordings that prove what a brilliantly musical brain he is. Listen for example, if you have not done, to the first album of Spastic Ink, full of instrumental pieces, where both the guitar and the bass parts are unbelievable.

So in the present EP “Animation Of Entomology” from another band of his, Blotted Science, you will find only instrumental songs that are being playing by three musicians. The first is Ron on guitars, Alex Webster from Cannibal Corpse on bass and Hannes Grossmann from Obscura on drums. Ron knows very well who are the
best for the other places and they have to carry the same madness and love for music with him.

To begin describing to you the songs is something really difficult and complicated and it is much easier to me to analyze you football games instead of. The main thing is that the songs are full of technique and strength derived by all the instruments and especially by the guitar. Indeed Jon has revealed that on a way to synthesize the songs he use the method of the clock on the guitar. Honestly I do not know anything about this method, but if there is someone who knows it would be great enlightening the rest
of us. Also the endeavor of picking a song that you could say it is better than the others it is even more difficult. But I could mention that there a melodic taste of sound in the four parts “I, II, III, IV” from “A Sting Operation”. These four songs have a
combination of melody, technique with beautiful alternations and speed.

Personally I really admire this EP, it is something that you do not have the chance to hear every day and definitely the inspiration of Jon is unique. Ron this is extremely good, but
please do something, find someone so that “Mathematics” will see the light of the day.

Yes, I know patience is the best ally, we will wait…
