Autocatalytica to release self titled LP
The psycho-maniacal spazzgazm of progressive-math-metal mayhem known as Autocatalytica are reinvigorating the spirit that every ‘heavy music’ connoisseur was drawn to in the first place. Staying true to some serious roots of Strapping Young Lad’s “Alien” and The Dillinger Escape Plan’s “Calculating Infinity” the Brooklyn based quartet announce the release of their upcoming LP as June 28th. Full of flying technical passages and precise stops juxtaposed with lush melodic passages, Autocatalytica layer on the sound and the talent.
“We’re seeking to bring something visceral and fearless to a scene unwittingly trapped by it's own stale tradition,” states the multi-talented front-man and producer Eric Thorfinnson. “We didn't use any drum replacement, click tracks, or grid alignment,” adds drummer Emmett Ceglia. Which uniquely veers far from the standard this day and age and adds sincerity and DIY-rooted truth in musicianship again. “We made the thing about as DIY as one can,” said Ceglia. “Hell, even the cover art is my own blood!”
