Tom Geldschläger: Fountainhead appears on the new single from The Fractured Dimension

The Fractured Dimension

Tom Geldschläger
The Fractured Dimension just released this new single track. I played fretted, fretless and ambient guitars (and will post a playthrough-video of it on the weekend) and mastered it. Jimmy Pitts - keys, Jerry Twyford - bass, Alex Arellano Malca - drums,Bill Bruce - guest guitar solo (middle section). If you like supercrazy technical instrumental metal, you better check this out!

From the minds that brought you Pitts Minnemann Project, as well as the debut of The Fractured Dimension "Towards the Mysterium", comes this exotic-scale-inspired romp through myriad time signatures, tempo changes, controlled chaos, and even the occasional nod to Cacophony and the Kung Fu movie soundtracks of the past. Originally a monstrous drum solo by Alex Arellano Malca (ex-Power of Omens), Gorilla Yin Yang no. 2 came into existence when Jimmy Pitts had the audacious idea to write keyboards to it and create a collaboration inspired by Frank Zappa's The Black Page no. 2. Upon completion, this song has remained unfinished for nearly four years before German guitar virtuoso Fountainhead (Xell, Purpose Effect), guitar hero Bill Bruce (ex-Shotgun Messiah, ex-Hellion, Mark Chapman Band, etc) and former Scholomance bassist Jerry Twyford got ahold of it. Now a complete track featuring an abundance of musical madness, it is presented to the most important element of the equation, the listener. Enjoy getting in touch with your inner Gorilla with this 'xen-struMENTAL' monstrosity!
