Produced and mixed by Ron Jarzombek and mastered by Danish studio whiz Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, DESTRUCTION, RAUNCHY) at Hansen Studios, 'The Machinations Of Dementia' was released to great critical acclaim on September 18, 2007 through Jarzombek's EclecticElectric label. In September 2010 the band announced that they were working on an EP, with Hannes Grossmann (OBSCURA, ex-NECROPHAGIST) replacing Charlie Zeleny on drums. An October 4, 2011 release date has since been set for the 'The Animation Of Entomology' EP. Meet the Scientists: Ron Jarzombek - guitars: The initiator of BLOTTED SCIENCE, Ron has long been hailed as one of the most unique guitarists and brilliantly creative forces of the progressive vanguard. First coming to the world's attention via WATCHTOWER's seminal 1989 tech thrash masterpiece, 'Control & Resistance', Ron further stunned prog connoisseurs with his abstract 90's outfit SPASTIC INK, put his signature stamp on the acclaimed GORDIAN KNOT debut album, and has toured the US, Europe, and Japan with fellow guitarist MARTY FRIEDMAN of Megadeth fame. Alex Webster - bass: Recognized as one of the premier bassists in extreme metal through his frenzied work with long running death metal icons CANNIBAL CORPSE, Alex was immediately up for the challenge of what would shape into BLOTTED SCIENCE when first contacted by Ron in 2005.
Not only did Mr. Hammer Smashed Bass turn out to be the perfect deathtoned counterpart to Ron's patented madness, resulting in a heavily collaborative effort during the writing stages, Alex also delivers a jawdropping performance and gets to stretch musically beyond what die-hard fans have come to expect. Hannes Grossmann - drums: Joining the BLOTTED SCIENCE line-up in 2010, Hannes takes over for Charlie Zeleny and comes with a technical death metal pedigree that's second to none. Formerly with NECROPHAGIST, this master of the skins has been stirring up a cosmogenetic maelstrom of epic proportions with Germany's much heralded OBSCURA for the past four years and is also a member of TERRESTRIAL EXILED featuring Ron Jarzombek.
