Semantic Saturation, a group that can be described as the solo project of Canadian guitarist/songwriter Shant Hagopian has launched a crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo. The campaign invites backers to provide financial support for the new Semantic Saturation album Paradigms. Shant is currently finishing up the recording of the album and it's about to enter the production stage.
The requested funds will cover the recording costs of all the musicians involved in the production, as well as the mixing, mastering and CD and LP pressing costs. Shant has put out a promise to all backers that they will be invited to a private release party for the new album, along with an online video streaming link and the chance to ask questions and chat with band members, Craig Blundell, Kristoffer Gildenlöw and Shant Hagopian for roughly an hour before listening to the whole album.
The album has great musicians as a part, like drummer Craig Blundell (Frost*, Steven Wilson), bassist Kristoffer Gildenlöw (ex Pain of Salvation), with special guests Derek Sherinian (ex Dream Theater) and Alex Argento on keyboards, as well as other guest musicians who are expected to rock the progressive rock and metal music domain once more.
