According to EYECONOCLAST and filmmaker Giulio Ferro, the time “when man will stop being merely human and will give birth to a new, stronger and improved version of himself through genetic manipulation and integration with technology” nears. Well, I don’t know about genetic manipulation, but integration with technology, fine genes and hard work work very well for some mere humans these days in Sochi; I would like to congratulate to Norway on seven medals (and many more to come) in total so far, to Canada for current best medal ranking to that crazy Austrian kid (Matthias Mayer) who won yesterday's crazy downhill, to Poland for yesterday's ski jumping gold and to Slovenia for their ski jumping silver, and so on. Incidentally Italy, EYECONOCLAST's home country, has currently two medals: Christof Innerhofer's downhill silver and Armin Zoeggeler's luge bronze. But back to business: ‘Rise Of The Orgamechanism’ comes off Italian death metal maniacs' Prosthetic Records debut ‘Drones Of The Awakening’ which is conquering the world in its full metal attire since April 2013. EYECONOCLAST's second full-length album, which introduced new vocalist Giuseppe Di Giorgio, was recorded at EYECONOCLAST guitarist Stefano Morabito's 16th Cellar Studio in Rome, Italy. Courtesy Prosthetic Records, listen to the full ‘Drones Of The Awakening’ below, appreciate, and buy the album here (Prosthetic Records store), from iTunes, Amazon MP3 or BandCamp:
Formed in 2003 in Rome, Italy, EYECONOCLAST “began their venture into the eerie realm of heavy music” in the already mentioned 16th Cellar Studios where they recorded their first official demo, ‘Binary Encoded Sunset’, with Stefano “Saul” Morabito who would eventually end up replacing Cristiano Trionfera (these days FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE's guitarist and vocalist) on guitar. In 2005, EYECONOCLAST self-produced their second demo ‘Clustered Dead Ending Corridors’; containing five tracks, two of those were included on separate compilation CDs issued by Terrorizer Magazine, the recording gained the band a deal with Swedish label Downfall Records. In 2008, EYECONOCLAST released their debut full-length album, ‘Unassigned Death Chapter’, which featured HOUR OF PENANCE's Giulio Moschini on bass. In 2011, the band recorded their latest EP with current bassist Paolo Ballarotto; ‘Sharpening Our Blades On The Mainstream’ proved to be the last recording with vocalist Carlos “Synder” Mastantuono, who has been since replaced by Giuseppe Di Giorgio.
