Spastic Ink

Spastic Ink started out as a solo project for guitarist Ron Jarzombek of Watchtower. After being joined by Ron's brother Bobby Jarzombek on drums and bass player Pete Perez (both of Riot at the time), they released their first album, Ink Complete, in 1996. Another album, Ink Compatible, was released in 2004.

Spastic Ink started out as a solo project for guitarist Ron Jarzombek of Watchtower. After being joined by Ron's brother Bobby Jarzombek on drums and bass player Pete Perez (both of Riot at the time), they released their first album, Ink Complete, in 1996. Another album, Ink Compatible, was released in 2004.

Ink Complete specializes in very complex instrumental fusion metal by using uncommon time signatures, frequent changes of time signatures and melodies that follow no particular scale. For example, in the song A Wild Hare, musical themes follow certain happening events of the Disney movie Bambi. What makes the song very uncommon is that the guitar (and sometimes bass) frequently play the notes of spoken dialogue spoken in the movie, instead of using any of the original score. This makes the piece sound cacophonous, espacially if the listener is unaware of the connection between the song and the movie.

Work on the follow-up, Ink Compatible had been ongoing for several years, and was finally completed in early 2004. Contributing to the album are several guest musicians, including fellow Watchtower members Jason McMaster and Doug Keyzer, Sean Malone (Cynic), Jens Johansson (Stratovarius), Daniel Gildenlöw (Pain of Salvation), Marty Friedman (Megadeth), and several others. « hide
