Reggae Metal Fusion NINJASPY Announce New Album ‘Spüken’ + New Video ‘Speak’

‘Spüken’ produced by Garth Richardson (Kittie, RATM, Mudvayne, The Melvins)

NINJASPY, a trio of blood brothers have been experimenting with metal fusion since 2006. Hard, heavy, hook-laden music that runs the gamut of reggae, surf, metal and more make up the band’s rule-breaking formula for notoriety. All this combined with an explosive and powerfully unhinged live show got NINJASPY off the ground in a hurry. Releasing their 2007 debut ‘Pi Nature’ and their 2013 EP ‘No Kata’ with a graphic novel, the band of brothers have teamed up once again with prolific producers GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mudvayne, Gallows) and Ben Kaplan (Biffy Clyro, Atreyu, Haste the Day) for their next full length ‘Spüken’ due out April 14, 2017.

Years in the making since spring 2014 when NINJASPY launched the “Jump Ya Bones” and crowd funding Campaign, the band was able to raise $15,000 to fund the new full length. They began recording in November 2014, taking their culmination of nearly a decade of songs and narrowing them down to an epic 10 track experience to demonstrate all their downbeats to breakdowns to their weaving of reggae, hardcore, metal and much more.

“These 10 songs span a decade, so there are a lot of different feels happening from song to song that represent what we got into over the years. It’s like we spent 10 years swallowing everything life threw at us, then we threw it all back up again, and are now able to listen to the blended, half-digested version of it.” says vocalist / guitarist Joel Parent.

‘Spüken’ was recorded and mixed sporadically over the next two years at in Vancouver BC and in the spring of 2016 between recording sessions, the band teased fans with a filmed and recorded live acoustic performance of their track ‘Azaria’, a song that is included with full metal instrumentation on the new genre-bending album. It showed the true diversity of the band and their ability to take manic and intense music and make it tender and raw.

The band’s first full single / music video ‘Speak’ can be watched at the following link below and can be downloaded from their online store, iTunes, CD Baby and Bandcamp.

Taylor Larson Teaches his Mixing Process for Jason Richardson’s “Fragments” on January 29


This Month on NAIL THE MIX:
Rising Modern Prog Metal Producer Taylor Larson Teaches his Mixing Process for Jason Richardson’s “Fragments” on January 29

If closing 2016 with one of Gojira‘s biggest tracks, “Toxic Garbage Island”, wasn’t a clear enough indicator for subscribers, take it from NTM creators Joey Sturgis, Joel Wanasek and Eyal Levi themselves – 2017 is gearing up to be a standout year for NAIL THE MIX.
January’s NTM features buzzworthy producer and From First To Last guitarist Taylor Larson – who has worked with the likes of Periphery, I See Stars, Memphis May Fire, Veil of Maya, Darkest Hour, Sky Eats Airplane, Capture The Crown,Life On Repeat and others – teaching a livestreaming class offering a complete walkthrough of how he mixed guitar shredder Jason Richardson‘s (formerly of All Shall Perish, Born of Osiris and Chelsea Grin)  massive new song “Fragments”. Download the multi-tracks today, then join Taylor Larson for the live stream on January 29.
Larson gives an idea of what to expect from his NTM class: “I’m really excited to do NAIL THE MIX. Jason Richardson‘s record was a really tough one, so I feel like there is a lot to be learned there. I’m going to go through what I had, and explain to you my mindset behind it. Also, since I’ve progressed between when I mixed this and now, I’ll probably try a couple of new things! I’m a little scared to re-open the session, but it’s going to be fun!”
“Fragments” can be found on Jason Richardson‘s latest album, I, released last summer. Supporting Richardson’s razor sharp performance and Larson’s booming production on the track is Lukas Magyar of Veil of Maya, Mark Holcomb of Periphery and Luke Holland (formerly of The Word Alive) – solidifying the track as one of the biggest modern progressive metal anthems of the past year.
Larson gives some insight into his mixing process on “Fragments”: “What’s unique about Jason’s mix is that it’s literally the most demanding style of music to mix. Literally the hardest thing to do. I also didn’t want to keep things simple. I wanted to challenge myself. Especially on guitars. From blending three different guitar tones per side, and using all different gear (which I’ll explain in the stream) to mixing tons of layers programming, and guitar parts. To be able to find the space to accomplish what I wanted was an insane task.”
 
NAIL THE MIX‘s Eyal Levi states,“Great source tones are a huge part of nailing an amazing sounding mix, and you’re not going to get source tones much better than these Jason Richardson tracks. Jason, and the rest of the song’s lineup – Mark Holcomb, Luke Holland, and Lukas Magryar -are as good as it gets from the younger generation of metal musicians. These are the Yngwies and Gene Hoglans of the below-30 crowd. Add Taylor Larson leading the way on the mix and you have the bar set about as high as it can go. If you’re looking to up your metal production and mixing game, this one is a no brainer.”
