About The Music:
Featuring electric guitar, multi-keyboards, electric bass and drums, Helmet Of Gnats’ sound is reminiscent of the classic Rock/Jazz Fusion movement of the early to middle 1970’s. This classic lineup carries the torch that was lit by the originators of Fusion while bringing the music into new and uncharted territory. Challenging compositions, melodic passages and blazing execution are hallmarks of this band.
24bit/176.4kHz digital conversion was used to make this multi-track recording, providing a similar wide analog bandwidth to DSD64. All songs were mixed on a custom analog console with analog outboard gear in the analog domain. A combination of custom made digital, vacuum tube and discrete solid-state equipment was used. The result is a very musical sounding recording with plenty of harmonics and rich textures reminiscent of the best of 1970’s fusion recordings.
