Tachy Bunker I honestly didn't think I would be into metal. This guy proved me wrong. Favorite track: I Don't Think Those Are Trees.

azab-shniggurath "This is your last chance. After hearing this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and hear whatever music you want to hear. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes." Favorite track: I Don't Think Those Are Trees.

Can This Even Be Called Music? Using three different exotic tuning systems – 13 EDO, 15 EDO, and 23 EDO (EDO stands for Equal Divisions of the Octave) – and a wide palette of musical genres, Jason makes us travel to never-before heard sonic landscapes. Favorite track: Heavy With Rain.
