BLOTTED SCIENCE - 'The Machinations Of Dementia'
Eclectic Electric 2007
Release date - September 18, 2007
Ron Jarzombek - guitars: The initiator of BLOTTED SCIENCE, Ron has long been hailed as one of the most singularly unique guitarists and brilliantly creative forces of the progressive vanguard. First coming to the world's attention via WATCHTOWER's seminal 1989 tech thrash masterpiece, 'Control & Resistance', Ron further stunned prog connoisseurs with his abstract 90's outfit SPASTIC INK, put his signature stamp on the acclaimed GORDIAN KNOT debut album, and has toured the US, Europe, and Japan with fellow guitarist MARTY FRIEDMAN of Megadeth fame.
Alex Webster - bass: Recognized as one of the premier bassists in extreme metal through his frenzied work with long running death metal icons CANNIBAL CORPSE, Alex was immediately up for the challenge of what would shape into BLOTTED SCIENCE when first contacted by Ron in 2005. Not only did Mr. Hammer Smashed Bass turn out to be the perfect deathtoned counterpart to Ron's patented madness, resulting in a heavily collaborative effort during the writing stages, Alex also delivers a jawdropping performance and gets to stretch musically beyond what die-hard fans have come to expect.
Charlie Zeleny - drums: The last member to join the three-pronged alliance, Charlie was well prepared to claim the vacant BLOTTED SCIENCE drum throne following the departure of both original skinsman Chris Adler (Lamb of God) and then Derek Roddy (Hate Eternal, Nile). A member of fledgling experimental tech metal triumvirate BEHOLD...... THE ARCTOPUS and drummer-of-choice for Dream Theater keyboard whiz JORDAN RUDESS, Charlie came through under the gun and brings incredible dexterity as well as a fearless no-holds-barred approach to the project.
