The brainchild of talented producer Rémi Gallego
, THE ALGORITHM
infuses modern metal breakdowns with a menagerie of electronic subgenres such as IDM, chiptune and breakcore to concoct his own potent style of fiercely heavy music.
Imagine a mash up electonrica driven breakdowns, djenty guitars, gut wrenching sub wobs and glitchy melodies all working together to fluidly pummel your head into the future.
Marking the next evolutionary stage, OCTOPUS4 is 12 new tracks that plunge even further into the unexpected, unthinkable and unbelievable. Named after a Commodore 64 computer virus with a vicious love of Will Smith, the album tells the story of OCTOPUS4 escaping in an alternate universe and changing the face of the world forever. Delivered by an unhinged, humorous and abrasive mix of soundscapes, the album is an impressively cohesive genre mash of metal, space rock, techno, dubstep, chiptune and sheer lunacy.
‘OCTOPUS4’ follows the groundbreaking debut ‘Polymorphic Code’, a record that redefined crossover music for the 21st century winning THE ALGORITHM the ‘Best Underground Act’ award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods and creating huge demand for worldwide touring. Mastermind Remi Gallego and prodigious young drummer Mike Malyan (MONUMENTS) have gone on to destroy venues and stages across the globe, touring with the likes TesseracT, Hacktivist and Enter Shikari as well as hitting Download Festival (UK), Euroblast Festival (DE), Big Day Out Festival (AUS) and more. With Mike Malyan touring with UK progressive beasts Monuments all over the world, Jean Ferry (UNEVEN STRUCTURE) has taken the seat to continue the madness even further in the time to come.
The Algorithm: no boundaries, or limitations, no formulas or rules; just Will Smith.
