An EP ? So what ?
Here you got my first actual try in mixing those genres : "Progressive metal, jazz, fusion." That's all.
Actually, the genre already exists but does not have any name.
And I like it for this too ! All is "to create, to discover, to innovate…"
My influences are clear, and will be clear for those who got the same as me.
Animals as Leaders, T.R.A.M
and Mestis, Chimp Spanner, Meshuggah and Devin Townsend, then e.s.t
, Manu Katché, Daniel Mille, Gilad Hekselman… to quickly quote some of them.
Actually, we ALWAYS write music in terms of what we listen.
There are no truly original ideas ever, only original combinations of preceding concepts...
As usual, I've played ALL the instruments, and a little' bit more than usual cuz I went in my cellar to find my old father's instruments that I could use here and there haha.
So, if I played and recorded drums (with my e-kit), bass, guitar, vocals and piano, I also played the Melodica, Kalimba, "canadian spoon", harmonica, spanish guitar, oud, bouzouki, flute, various percussions, metal cans, tam tam, claves...
Always more, MORE AND MORE ! Yes, that's the deal. Layering, layering, layering everywhere, but that's the desired effects ! :)
You can find the details of the guests in the download ^^
