Transatlantic progressive extreme metal all-stars BLOTTED SCIENCE – featuring guitarist/mastermind Ron Jarzombek (WATCHTOWER, TERRESTRIAL EXILED, SPASTIC INK), bassist Alex Webster (CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE ETERNAL), and drummer Hannes Grossmann (OBSCURA, TERRESTRIAL EXILED) – have posted the ‘A Sting Operation’ video on the EclecticElectric YouTube channel www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvy0skCDQbA, the fourth and final clip in conjuction with their newly released “The Animation Of Entomology” EP.
Commented Ron Jarzombek: “Well, this being the last “Animation”-related video we have for you all, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone out there for the awesome feedback on the previous installments, be it with a comment on our YouTube channel, Facebook or via e-mail. We set out to do something a little different with the “The Animation Of Entomology”, i.e. scoring our own mini-soundtracks to these flicks and create a dual audio-visual experience unlike probably anything that’s out there in the metal world. I think we’ve managed that and it’s great to know so many of you got into it and dug on the whole trip. I’ve got one more “Animation”-related project in the works, my upcoming instructional DVD, “Dissecting Bugs”, where I will go in-depth with all of the 12-tone theory, and play all guitar parts on all songs from the EP. There is no tentative release date yet but it’ll be out sometime in 2012 for sure so stay tuned for that all you guitar geeks.”
The folllow-up to the band’s highly acclaimed 2007 “The Machinations Of Dementia” full-length album, “The Animation Of Entomology” was produced and mixed by Ron Jarzombek and recorded in San Antonio, Texas; Tampa, Florida; and V. Santura’s (OBSCURA, TRIPTYKON) Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany where the drums were cut. Mastering duties were once again handled by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, DESTRUCTION) at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark.
