The master of futuristic metal shred, Paul Wardingham is back with his 4th completely self-produced instrumental cyber metal epic, Electromancer! A sequel to Paul's 2nd album, he returns to the world he created for The Human Affliction, 150 years in the future!
Inspired by his favourite sci-fi movies from the 80s and 90s, Wardingham pushes the boundaries of his instrumental style even further with Electromancer. Featuring a more retro-futuristic, synthwave influenced, electro-metal sound than on previous albums.
“Electromancer is a totally self-indulgent, cyberpunk movie inspired, synthesizer infused, retro-futuristic shred-fest, that brings together my favourite music genres: metal and electronic music, closer than ever before!” Like Wardingham’s sophomore effort The Human Affliction, Electromancer is a concept album inspired by an original story set on Earth in the year 2217. “The story follows “Electromancer” a cyborg anti-hero and his biomech protector called “MX-106” as they evade enemies and authorities to get to Mars with the “Cyber Drive”. The “Cyber Drive is a weapon that could be used to destroy life on either Earth or Mars, both of whom are on the verge of war. ”
Electromancer features stunning cover artwork by Light The Torch (ex-Devil You Know) and former All Shall Perish guitarist Francesco Artusato.
