Spastic Ink is a technical progressive metal band consisting of guitarist Ron Jarzombek (Watchtower), bassist Pete Perez (Riot), and Ron's brother Bobby on drums (Riot, Halford)...their music incorporates elements of jazz fusion and classic metal...this band specializes in super-complex instrumental fusion metal, making even Watchtower sound simplistic...they started out as a solo project for Jarzombek...hmm...they play incredibly complex metal instrumentals...I think Ron Jarzombek is a master guitarist, quite frankly one of the best...his distinctive style is in top form here, as both his soloing and riffing is unbelievably tight, and yet the rhythm section of Bobby and Pete matches him every step of the way...awesome...in my opinion there is no other band alive today that possesses such technical and musical prowess...Spastic Ink dont play traditional melodically structured compositions...rather, what they do is turn the arrangements, hmm, "inside-out," mixing superb "virtuoso" playing with abrupt time and key changes...this band is unique, nobody really plays this kind of music...they use bizarre interludes and Zappa-like humor...They have released two albums (Ink Complete and Ink Compatible)...Well, I dont own the first one, only Ink Compatible, but I can tell this album kicks ass! Highly recommended...there are many guest performances on this album...including appearances by metal giants such as Marty Friedman (Cacophony, Megadeth), Michael Manring (Attention Dficit, Skol-Patrol), Daniel Gildenlow (Pain of Salvation) and Jens Johansson (Stratovarius, Kamelot, Dio, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc) and several others...this is the best progressive metal band ever...hell yeah...

I quite appreciated Spastik Ink's Ink Compatible, but the vocals kinda KILL it for me. Are their other albums better ?

I think the vocals seem to be love hate. At least from reading other people's opinions. I personally love them.

Spastic Ink are a great quirky band. Rather stylish and I like how they have a reoccuring lyircal subject of nerds.

Spastic Ink, the most technical band ever in my opinion...yesterday I bought Ink Complete, great albums..."See, and It's Sharp," uses only two notes (C and C#) across five octaves...a band that can write an interesting song using only two musical notes is pretty damn good...they're so original and creative...a lot of instrumental records have like ten songs that sound the same, but each of these is unique and different...Jarzombek is one of the best guitar players in the whole world...

Spastic Ink rules, so perfect, so technical, so amazing. "Ink Compatible" is way better than "Ink Complete" I love the abrupt tempo changes, rhythmic devices and time signatures "In Memory of..." is a very strange song...you know, the one about computer memory [RAM] the sound is very melancholic

It's art for art, complexity gets its pick there, but whats more.. After a few minutes of listening im really tired, and keeping attention is really hard to achieved. It's rather music instruction how to play really freakin structures, that regular music. Anyway it's interesting and worth these few whiles to get through.

in my opinion there is no other band alive today that possesses such technical and musical prowess...you may disagree...they dont play traditional melodically structured compositions, thats for shure...but I found it quite easy, after a few listens, to stop analysing the music and just enjoy the melodies and solos, but I dont know if others will be able to...

Anyone seen this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhP4lg28fs0&search=spastic%20ink ? It's their songs and they sync up to bambi PERFECTLY not like any of those other syncs this one actually works it's so cool. There songs make so much sense now and that can't be a coincidence because it syncs up with Hopper so well.

Cereal Mouse yea...I remember way back ages ago when I first listened to that on his site...and all the video where he does the guitar for Bambi...I was completely wide-mouthed staring at the screen...yah, their first album is insane...

Mention must be given though to Watchtower as well as Jarzombek's other projects I would assume...

...hmm i dont think you can easily compare spastic ink to sleep terror...they are both different, sleep terror is more technical death to me, and well, obviously spastic ink is progressive...i think the only thing in which they are alike is in the talent, both bands have an astonishing talent and they make amazing music...it would be very very interesting to see them sharing stage though
