Invoking the Abstract is a four‐piece instruMETAL band hailing from Columbia, South Carolina. In 2010, guitarists Tyler Ivey and Evan Garner started composing music for their new project. After the release of their first EP in 2012, they joined forces with percussionist Ryan Meadows and bassist Joseph Carrabotta. They recently recorded their first full‐length album, entitled Aural Kaleidoscopes, at The Basement Recording Studios with Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist, Scale the Summit). The album is set to debut on Unique Leader Records in 2016. The band prides themselves on utilizing various approaches to rhythm, phrasing, and playing styles that conveys a sound which traverses genres. Their broad style, containing both soaring guitar solos and groovy mixed meters, creates a blend of catchy hooks accompanied by churning technical metal.
