Gnostic - Recording Debut Album In September

Gnostic, the Atlanta, Georgia-based band featuring original Atheist drummer Steve Flynn alongside Chris Baker and Sonny Carson (who handled the guitar duties on the Atheist reunion tour this past year), will record its debut CD at Ledbelly Studios in Atlanta September 22-29. The group, which is rounded out by Stephen Morley on bass, and Kevin Freeman on vocals, has enlisted Atheist/Neurotica frontman Kelly Shaefer to co-produce as well as make an appearance on the album. Starrfactory Entertainment (Shaefer's company) will begin evaluating offers from labels interested in releasing the as-yet-untitled record in various territories around the world.

According to a press release, Gnostic comes with a ferociously technical sound that is inspired by the same school of technicality that Atheist fans expect, "but Gnostic is an angrier animal for sure," says Shaefer. "I think people will be utterly blown away by the technical metal gem these guys have written. Kevin Freeman offers up a far more guttural approach then me, so it will be blazing with difficulty, but relentless in sheer brutality."

Shaefer adds, "While touring this past year with Atheist, we were able to set the stage for Gnostic to pick up where Atheist left off, and take it a bit further with their own unique style. This is going to set technical metal fans on their collective asses when they hear it; the drumming alone is so insane. I think, much like with Atheist, it will have even the most accomplished metal heads scratching their heads with amazement!" Shaefer also warns labels not to sleep on this like they did with Atheist back in the day. "This WILL be a landmark release without a doubt!" he said.

Gnostic's 2006 "Isolate Gravity" demo can be heard at this location.
