Hailing from the Bay Area, California ABNORMAL THOUGHT PATTERNS is a mathematical instrumental trio that fuses heavy riffs, intricate time signatures and shredding solos. It is hard to describe with words what the trio is doing within its songs, you have to experience it with your own ears and you will be blown away by the sheer technicality these guys have in their fingers!
Bands’ debut for LIFEFORCE RECORDS – “Manipulation Under Anesthesia” – was mixed by Matt LaPlant (Sikth, Nonpoint) and mastered by Alan Douches (Between The Buried and Me, The Dillinger Escape Plan). Artwork by Erick “Wurm” Pollard.
Twin brothers Jasun (guitar) and Troy Tipton (bass) along with Mike Guy (drums) are the collective creative force behind ABNORMAL THOUGHT PATTERNS. In 2008, Jasun wrote and recorded a 12-minute instrumental that would ultimately lead to the founding of this new instrumental band. Prior to forming this group, the trio was the backbone of prog-metal powerhouses ZERO HOUR, releasing five albums. Germany’s Rock Hard magazine proclaimed, “Zero Hour is one of the five Best Progressive Newcomers in the late ’90s!” This exactly is what the Californians are continuing with ABNORMAL THOUGHT PATTERNS – but this time with instrumental music.
