Colin Marston

Colin Marston is the hardest-working metal musician in New York City, which, to paraphrase The Big Lebowski, puts him in the running for hardest-working worldwide. Marston has released music with no fewer than four (crazy complex) bands during the past year-ish: Dysrhythmia, Krallice, Behold The Arctopus, and Gorguts, who recently played Hopscotch Fest and who joined Invisible Oranges on the September 3 edition of our East Village Radio show. Marston also released a little-noticed but amazing solo album under the name Indricothere earlier this year.

But all that evidently isn’t enough for Marston, because he’s released another Indricothere album directly to Bandcamp. Though past Indricothere albums have been solidly in his tech/prog-metal wheelhouse, his new effort XI travels substantially off his shred-beaten path. We’ve got a full writeup over at Invisible Oranges, but here’s an excerpt:

Even for a musician of his breadth, this new effort is a curveball…Marston has followed in Gorguts/Dysrhythmia bandmate Kevin Hufnagel’s footsteps and released an entire album of textural music. There are no strings or drums on XI; if there are, they’re not clearly discernible. We’re treated instead to slow-shifting synths and shimmering textures; the chord progressions proceed gracefully, and with only a little of the tension that usually colors Marston’s compositions.

Stream XI in full below.
