Titan to Tachyons features guitarist Sally Gates(ex-Orbweaver, ex-Gigan), backed by the powerhouse rhythm section of Kenny Grohowski (Secret Chiefs 3, Imperial Triumphant, Brand X) and Matt Hollenberg (Cleric, John Zorn). Inspired by surrealistic sci-fi, the collective use their full power on “Earth, And Squidless”, walking the fine line between avant-garde and full-on metallic. If 2020 is a new golden age for experimental (and experiential) metal, Titan to Tachyons stand at the forefront of this new era. Heavy, forward-thinking, and unapologetic, this is a new reality.
The song is from Cactides, releasing on 14 August via Nefarious Industries, and was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Colin Marston at Menegroth, the Thousand Caves (Dysrhythmia, Behold… The Arctopus, Cleric) in Queens, New York, in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. The closing track, “Everybody’s Dead, Dave”, features guest musician Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, Secret Chiefs 3) on bass for a structured improvisational piece. The record is completed with artwork and layout by Sally Gates with photos by Karen Jerzyk. The LP is pressed on bone white and gold vinyl with aqua blue splatter, with a full-color insert in a polybag, hand-numbered, limited to 300 copies.
