Antithetic Records has set a May 21 street date for the first-ever vinyl release of “The Machinations Of Dementia” and “The Animation Of Entomology”, the two highly acclaimed albums by experimental progressive metal all-star triumvirate BLOTTED SCIENCE, featuring guitarist/mastermind Ron Jarzombek (WATCHTOWER, SPASTIC INK), bassist Alex Webster (CANNINAL CORPSE), and drummer Hannes Grossmann (OBSCURA).
“The Machinations Of Dementia” will be issued as a limited-edition gatefold double LP, with 100 copies on clear with yellow-and-green splatter vinyl, 150 copies on bone-and-blood-swirl vinyl, and the remaining 250 copies in black. The Animation Of Entomology” will come as a single LP, including a full-color two-sided insert, with 100 copies on blood red vinyl, 150 copies on yellow-with-black-splatter vinyl, and 250 copies in black. Exclusive pre-orders for both titles can now be placed via the Antithetic Records web site.
BLOTTED SCIENCE was conceived in 2005 when Ron Jarzombek teamed up with Alex Webster and original drummer Chris Adler (LAMB OF GOD) who later had to bow out due to time constraints and was replaced by Charlie Zeleny (BEHOLD…. THE ARCTOPUS, JORDAN RUDESS) on the band’s 2007 debut release, “The Machinations Of Dementia”. Zeleny‘s seat was taken over by Hannes Grossmann on the 2011 mini-album follow-up, “The Animation Of Entomology”, a 25-minute metal soundtrack scored to creepy crawly excerpts of the movies “Slither”, “Creepshow”, “Swarmed”, and Peter Jackson‘s “King Kong”. Grossmann and Jarzombek had earlier collaborated on the one-off project TERRESTRIAL EXILED whose digital-only single “Duodecimal Levorotation” was issued in the spring of 2011.
