Album Notes
Ron Jarzombek - guitars: The initiator of BLOTTED SCIENCE, Ron has long been hailed as one of the most singularly 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.

Charlie Zeleny - drums: The last member to join the three-pronged alliance, Charlie was well prepared to claim the vacant BLOTTED SCIENCE drum throne following the departure of both original skinsman Chris Adler (Lamb of God) and then Derek Roddy (Hate Eternal, Nile). A member of fledgling experimental tech metal triumvirate BEHOLD...... THE ARCTOPUS and drummer-of-choice for Dream Theater keyboard whiz JORDAN RUDESS, Charlie came through under the gun and brings incredible dexterity as well as a fearless no-holds-barred approach to the project.


to write a review


Excellent Fusion...
Based on the members of this band, it sounds like what you would expect. A little bit of Cannibal Corpse, a little bit of Spastic Inc/Watchtower, and even a little hint of Atheist/Cynic fusion mixed in. It's all instrumental, which is a good thing. It leaves the listener to use their imagination as to what they would like the vocals to sound like. Overall, an excellent album.

Kang Garnic

just about everything about this release Rocks and Rolls! superb musicianship, great production (if i ever had the opportunity, id like to ask what mr. Jarzombek recorded with--Great Tone for both the riffs and leads), cool album concept. Definitely worth checking out.


great album
Blotted Science creates great music, interesting song concepts and arrangements. Well worth it.


Incredible! I found these guys through Behold...The Arctopus my space page and was blown away. Listen to these guys and be amazed.

Luc Hamel

Excellent !!!
It's a very awesome CD. I like to discover of the new musical stuff. Incredible sound.
Franchement un très bon disque. J'adore.

Glen Vokes

An album of pure frantic insanity. Technicality has been taken to the edge without sacrificing any brutality and it has dismantled my brain. Good Stuff.

Joshua Thompson

The title is the best way to describe this album. It just cannot get any better than this. These guys cannot be human to play something this good.

Lasse Myren

Hilarious AvantMetal that leans more towards ... jazz!?! .... than the normal MetalMachoMix. When you need to get the demons out of your core, this is it.

Daryl Hembrough

Killer guitar work and everyhting else too, love it.


I don't know if I have the right to rate this yet because I haven't bought the album yet. All that I've heard is the samples, and I have to say that Blotted Science is one of the most incredible bands I have ever heard!!! They have that special sound that only a few bands have. I love it!!!!!! But to me the second best part about this band is that they are instrumental. Which means, If your 13 like me, than your mom won't get ticked off about bad lyrics like Cannibal Corpse. I am SO buying this. My headphones will never leave my ears again.
