Basick Signs is proud to announce the signing of Italian tech-core band Damned Spring Fragrantia to its increasing international roster. Taking musical influence from the likes of Ion Dissonance, The Chariot, and The Acacia Strain and mixing it up with a hardcore swagger, DSF take technical metal and crushing grooves to a whole new level. Check out the brand new track “D.M.Z.” below.

Blotted Science is an instrumental, technical metal super group of sorts comprised of guitarist Ron Jarzombek (Watchtower, Spastic Ink), bassist Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse) and drummer Hannes Grossmann (Obscura, ex-Necrophagist). I recently had a chance to speak with Ron Jarzombek about the band’s newest EP, The Animation Of Entomology, a disc that is literally scored and written to bug movies. Hard to believe at first, but if you sync up the songs on this disc to various bug movies found on the internet the result is absolutely amazing. The EP stands on its own as well though thanks to the incredible talent of all three members. Here’s what Jarzombek had to say about this truly unique project.
