Felix Martin Posts New Track "Bom"

Felix Martin recently announced details regarding his upcoming 15-track full-length album, "Mechanical Nations," due out February 24th, 2017. Today Martin is revealing a brand new track, "Bom," which can be heard below.

"For this song, I wanted to see drums and guitar as one instrument, writing grooves for both instruments in a way that would make sense," says Martin. "This was the very first song I wrote using this guitar you see in the video (FM-907), which is a 9-string and a 7-string together, making it a guitar with 16-strings in one wide neck. I wanted to add that low 9-string open string (which is the lowest note I could possibly play) in a way that would sound heavy and big. I do this by slapping the guitar with my hand open."

He continues, "This song came to me after listening to a lot of industrial, prog and nu-metal music. It's influenced by the band Planet X with a bit of industrial vibe from Nine Inch Nails mostly at the middle, then a general electronic vibe in the interlude. I think Primus influenced this track too."

Martin recently announced an upcoming tour of the northeastern U.S. with Consider The Source, beginning March 8th in Pittsburgh, PA. The tour will hit a total of ten cities, coming to an end on March 19 in Bridgeport, CT.

Half of this song reminds me of the first ten seconds of Van Halen's "Mean Street," but Eddie played it on one guitar neck, not two. I don't hear any nu-metal in this at all.

Some of it is pretty cool, but a lot of it is just nonsense.
