Into the Singularity and the Maw of Tomorrow

Album Notes

"Technically stunning, professionally produced, delightfully excessive, and endearingly earnest, the debut album from San Marcos's Every Other Fate is a relentless and disarming emo-math-rock mosaic. Rarely appearing to stay with one idea for longer than 30 seconds, and maintaining a furious energy for almost the whole duration of the album, "into the singularity and the maw of tomorrow" is an exhausting listen. Of course that's a good thing for your typical math-rocker (or prog-metalhead, in my case). The myriad tightly-packed ideas are not exactly luxuriously developed, but they are all really good ideas executed with refreshing confidence. Essentially a disorienting thrill ride, this album could be considered ear-candy if it weren't for the consistently thought-provoking lyrics. While at times sounding like he's reading from his diary (for all the good and bad that may entail), vocalist and presumed lyricist Brent Ferguson gets points for an expressive delivery and his intriguing concepts about insanity and technology. Gold stars go to head-spinning drum work by Brandon Daniel and nuanced-yet-adrenal production by Jason Moore. This tight local release that will give you your money's worth of thrills, and more than a little depth and honesty thrown in to wash it down."

Sam Arnold, Whoopsy Magazine, October 2005


Strapped to the gurney and rolling down the hall, Every Other Fate is the band one would hum before the electroshock treatments. As a furious and prosaic math/prog band, Every Other Fate redefines the standards of modern progressive music following the direction of such bands as The Mars Volta, Muse and Coheed and Cambria. Whoopsy Magazine calls this Austin-based quartet "…a relentless and disarming emo-math-rock mosaic.”

With the completion of their first full-length album, “Into the Singularity and the Maw of Tomorrow,” Every Other Fate has found themselves caught in a maelstrom of high-profile performances, including headlining a show at SXSW, opening at Stubbs for Kevin Martin (Candlebox) and the Hi-Watts, playing The Heart of Texas Quadruple Bypass Music Festival, and consistantly headlining in the Austin area. Their current concept album flows in movements as a narrative, telling the 1st-person story of a man struggling against technology and questing for meaning and enlightenment. “Into the Singularity...” is a wrenching, pulsating journey through emotion and insanity that leads the listener, through musically-induced psychosis, into the unknown and beyond.

Every Other Fate includes Brent Ferguson (vocals/bass), Josh Cunningham (guitar), Matt Hinterlong (guitar) and Brandon Daniel (drums). All of their projects, including their current album, are all-encompassing and include original artwork, graphics and web design.

Very nice
Sound very modern e 70'es at the same time!
Vocals remind me to Bowie or something dark/new wave

Brian Hamilton

One of my Favorites
Easily one of the best albums I have ever heard. the musicians on this album are quite superb and the singing is emotionally charged without sounding forced or faked.

Comparable to Tool's Lateralus in terms of depth and ability of the artist.

Michael Dilliott

extremely cool album
...reminded me a great deal of the Mars Volta, King Crimson applies as well. -this is one of those voices that may strike some the wrong way, but it definitely grows on you fast. i really like the way this album progressed, there wasn't a point on the disc where the music seemed to lose any "steam" so to speak. as others have said, this band is right on the money, very tight, very precise delivery and its very apparent. a very cool, very interesting piece of music, i'm glad i got this one.

Jason Carver

Simply Complex
If you dig the likes of Tool, the Mars Volta, Radiohead, System of a Down, Coheed and Cambria, etc... this cd is for YOU! This is a true fusion of styles -- from old school Prog Rock (King Crimson) to more modern metal -- and even latin flares from time to time. The odd time signatures keep it interesting while cool melodies hold it together. Takes a few spins to hear every detail, but has hardly left my cd player since.

Katie Hinshaw

Great CD!
Hard for me to describe. It is just good! Definitely worth buying!

The intensity of the music and lyrics changed my religion.
I had never heard of Every Other Fate before borrowing this album from a friend who bought it at cdbaby after sampling. This album was amazing. The lyrics are poetic and painful and the music is ever-changing, intense and beautiful. The vocals are like none other I've ever heard. The singer's sound is emotionally raw and very haunting. The story that the songs tell fits together like a narrative. I would recommend this album to anyone who wants to take a musical and lyrical journey.

A humble music lover.

I love it.
I love it. It’s the Bach like mathematical precision of this quartet that blows me away. Its how much thought went in to writing the journals to go along with the music. Not just a booklet with lyrics, but a background, a entire separate life and ordeal one can get into and experience not just the musical talent. And not just a few paragraphs like most others, but 20 pages to take you into the next dimension of not just listening to the music, but entering it, experiencing it. Worth every freaking penny.
