Episode #43 John Strieder (Coma Cluster Void)
Welcome to this weeks episode of the Heavy Metal History Podcast. My guest this week is guitarist John Strieder of the band Coma Cluster Void. John shares his many talents with me about how he learned guitar as well as being a classical music composer. Coma Cluster Void was founded in 2013 by John Strieder and Sylvia Hinz. John Strieder (Guitar) is an internationally accomplished composer of avantgarde music. Sylvia Hinz (Bass) is an internationally acclaimed conductor and instrumentalist of baroque and avantgarde music. In 2014, legendary vocalist Mike DiSalvo (Ex-Cryptopsy) joined the team. In 2015, the line-up was completed with amazing drummer Chris Burrows (Ex-Thoren) and crazy talented vocalist Austin Taylor (Dimensionless).
In 2016, they released their debut album "Mind Cemeteries", which features guest appereances by Lord Worm (Ex-Crytopsy) and Will Smith (Artificial Brain). The record was praised by the critics and featured on many AOTY lists. In 2017, they continue their journey with the labyrinthic EP "Thoughts From A Stone", a one-movement symphony expanding what can be expressed in metal.
