Chimp Spanner

"Chimp Spanner is an instrumental progressive metal project I've been working on for the past few years, and made its first appearance with my debut album Imperium Vorago (2004). The idea has always been to bring together all the music I love into one package, from low tuned tech metal and dark seedy fusion, to warbly 80's ambient electro and cheesy feel-good euphoria. I'm also slightly (see: dangerously) obsessed with all things sci-fi and film. My latest CD At the Dream's Edge brings all of this together to create a sound that's new, yet familiar.

I'm also slightly (see: dangerously) obsessed with all things sci-fi and film. My latest CD At the Dream's Edge brings all of this together to create a sound that's new, yet familiar. Angular and jarring, yet ambient and evocative. It's soundtrack metal, progressive retro-futurism, a polymetric space opera, music for hover-boarding championships...but most people just say it's kinda'chimpy'".

The man behind it all.

"My name is Paul Antonio Ortiz, I'm 25 and based in Essex (UK). I'm a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer - taught by my parents - and have been hopelessly passionate about music since I can remember. I primarily play extended range guitars (7 and 8 string) but I also play bass, keyboards and drums on all of my tracks. All recording, mixing and production is donefrom wherever I happen to have my setup, which is usually in my room". « hide
