Fermentor, the San Diego-based instrumental metal band return with their latest full-length
album, MIND MELD.
Comprised of two life-long friends, drummer Dylan Marks (Atheist, Beekeeper) and guitarist
Adam “Wally” Wollach (Beekeeper, TrashAxis), Fermentor strip away the comforts of a
traditional band structure, relying solely on communicating through only two elements, drums and guitar.
Engineered by Ben Moore at Singing Serpent studios and recorded and mixed by Adam
Wollach; MIND MELD is a departure from the production style of Fermentor’s previous records,
opting instead for a more realistic portrayal of their explosive live energy.
Featuring eight original songs of relentlessly catchy and intricately composed music, Fermentor is setting a new standard in their genre with MIND MELD as a one-of-a-kind instrumental music experience, seamlessly transitioning between crushing brutality and thoughtful introspection.
This record not only marks the duo's triumphant return after 2020’s CONTINUANCE, but also
showcases Fermentor at the apex of their creative powers. The pair offer up an album like no
other, boldly emphasizing irresistible hooks and infectious grooves without compromising their
signature complexity and electrifying musical arrangements.
After 15 years of grinding their combined talents to a precision edge, Fermentor’s compositions have been elevated to remarkable new heights, and MIND MELD is the sonic testament to their matured abilities and unbreakable creative connection.
MIND MELD releases on December 1st, 2023 to streaming and CD.
