- The Size Of Matter -


WATCHTOWER "Three tracks from the yet to be released WatchTower CD 'Mathematics', released October 21st, 2015
(14:19 min, 3 tracks, studio recording, 2015, origin: FLAC)

01 M-Theory Overture 03:48
02 Arguments Agains Design 04:12
03 Technology Inaction 06:20

NOTES: At last some new tracks from the gods of technical thrash! And they carry on
right where they left off with "The Size Of Matter" and "Control And Resistance"... Only the
production is better and they take it far enough now that insanity really seems within one's
grasp. Alan Tecchio singing again, Ron Jarzombek on guitars, Doug Keyser on bass
and Rick Colaluca on drums. Other than the rest of the stuff I have on display here,
this is NOT for trade but can be downloaded on cdbaby. Do support this seminal
band at last, they more than deserve it, this being all but orgasmic...
