INVOKING THE ABSTRACT – “Neocropolis” Exclusive Full Band Playthrough


Invoking the Abstract’s new instrumental prog metal album Aural Kaleidoscopes will be hitting the streets next month on September 30th, out on Unique Leader records. Until then, you’ve got this tasty full-band playthrough to tide you over (or tease you out, whichever you prefer).

Here’s some more info on the band from the press release:

Invoking the Abstract is a four piece instrumental band hailing from Columbia S. Carolina. In 2010 guitarists and founding members Tyler Ivey and Evan Garner started composing music for their new project. After the release of their extremely well taken EP in 2012, they joined forces with percussionist Ryan Meadows and bassist Joseph Carrobatta. They recently recorded their first full length album, entitled Aural Kaleidoscopes, at The Basement Recording Studios with Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist, Scale the Summit). The band prides itself on using various approaches to rhythm, phrasing and playing styles that conveys a sound that traverses genres. Their broad style, containing both soaring guitar solos and groovy mixed meters, creates a blend of catchy hooks accompanied by churning technical metal which reaches new heights of originality.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
