Venezuelan-born double-neck tapping electric guitar virtuoso Felix Martin has shared the music video for his new single ‘Gatherpiece’. The song is part of his upcoming new album “The Gathering” out on February 9th. The single features renascence-inspired melodies in the prog-metal style, as well as a blend of 16-string guitar and 10-string bass happening for the very first time.

“I remember I was looking for sources of inspiration, so I started analyzing the artwork of Magic The Gathering, which I’m a huge fan of. The melody and song came to me after spending a day just looking at the card’s artwork. The main theme/melody which ended up becoming the song was very inspired by medieval music. The rest of the song is pretty much based on that initial melody. I also love how my current FM Guitars are setup to play chord melodies, where it almost sounds like a hybrid between a guitar and a piano” says Felix.

Drummer Nic Kubes adds, “When Felix brought me the song I was instantly hooked, mainly because I’m a sucker for combining genres. So when these Baroque-ish melodies are flowing from a guitar player like Felix with this dramatic metal sound, there are a lot of exciting possibilities for counterpoint, and to take advantage of all those dynamic moments Felix throws at you. It’s a lot of fun.”

Bassist Joan Torres adds “I really enjoy the sonic aesthetic of this track. I think it takes you to a small town with buildings made of stone, but then it adds some anachronisms that hint at a more modern world. I’m also a big fan of the way the parts came together, particularly the play between the bass and guitar parts because in certain spots it’s almost like we’re Celtic bards or cosmic troubadours, playing string instruments of those medieval times.”

The artwork is an anime-style character called Gatherpiece, created by Felix. The album consists of a total of 10 characters, each one representing a song.
