Drawing influence from experimental bands by the likes of Tool, Opeth, Radiohead and Devin Townsend with a pounding electro and pop edge, “Opus of a Machine” pushes the creative boundaries of alternative, progressive rock. With a large plethora of musical heroes, Opus of a Machine blends technical proficiency and raw emotion, bridging the gap between the two. The first single, Parallels displays the more pop-orientated, hard-hitting side of Opus of a Machine, melding mechanical and electronic aesthetics with dense and introspective hard-rock orchestration.
Guitarist, singer and producer Jon Symons brings to you 'The Jon Symons Project'.
In September 2014 Jon started the writing and recording of his new album 'Escape The Hollow'.
Let Jon explain in his own words how the album came to fruition:
'Next to my band Raptor I needed an outlet for some musical ideas I had in my head.
Everything is written and played on an 8-string guitar giving the guitar sounds and parts a unique timbre.
This really helped in giving the whole project a style and direction.
