Blotted Science Comments On Upcoming EP "The Animation Of Entomology"

Technical extreme metal instrumentalists Blotted Science, featuring guitarist/mastermind Ron Jarzombek, bassist Alex Webster, and new arrival, drummer Hannes Grossmann, are currently putting the finishing touches on their new EP, "The Animation Of Entomology," which is due out this fall via Ron Jarzombek's EclecticElectric label.

"Well, it's been a long, arduous process but we're finally seeing light at the end of tunnel," states Jarzombek. "Hannes has been done for a few months, Alex finished up his tracks in early June, and I'm now in the home stretch with my solos. I'm so psyched about what the reaction will be once fans hear and see what we're doing. If you can imagine a cross between Cannibal Corpse, Spastic Ink, and a Bugs Bunny cartoon — that's pretty much what's going on."

"The Animation Of Entomology" takes Jarzombek's fascination with animated cartoons and creepy crawlies to a whole new level. After having experimented with writing complex pieces of music to sync up with classic movie sequences for Spastic Ink on "The Wild Hare" and "The Cereal Mouse," the concept has now been applied to Blotted Science over the course of seven songs and a total of 24 minutes of music.

"I totally busted my ass syncing things up, carefully orchestrated music to film, bug movies actually, and nit-picked notes to death on this material until my fingers bleed and my brain nearly exploded," Jarzombek says. "We wanted to follow up 'Machinations' along some of the same lines of science and gore, and came up with a killer concept and some great material with yet another 12-tone system. How everything all falls into place I think is beyond incredible! Whether this is the heaviest or most technical thing I've ever done, I don't really know or care, but no other band/project is pulling off what we are doing with this EP."

"The Animation Of Entomology" track listing is as follows:

1. Ingesting Blattaria
2. Cretaceous Chasm
3. Vermicular Asphyxiation
4. A Sting Operation
I. Human Barbequed
II. Cessation Sanitation
III. Seeing Dead People
IV. Omitting Eyes

You know it's weird RM?, I just listened to "Skullgrid" the other day and thought "why the hell don't I listen to this more, this is awesome!". Underrated. Zeleny isn't even playing drums for either BS or B-TA any more, I think Colin Marston playing for Gorguts/Mick Barr caught up with the 'growing in popularlity' Krallice is probably the reason there's no new stuff.

...anyway, I've never been a big fan of Jarzombek's 12 tone system but hey beggars can't be choosers and the syncing does sound pretty cool.... what I want is the new Watchtower album to be released!!
