The project came together in 2013 when modern German avant-garde composer John Strieder and fellow conductor and instrumentalist Sylvia Hinz joined forces. Over the following years other talented musicians have joined their ranks to create a terrifying yet unique vision of death metal like you've never heard it sound before. Beyond John Strieder on 10-string guitar and Sylvia Hinz on bass guitar and double bass recorder, the album also features a fierce dual vocalist attack from ex-Cryptopsy vocalist Mike DiSalvo and Dimensionless vocalist Austin Taylor. Rounded out by the brilliant playing of drummer Christopher Burrows, Mind Cemeteries also features vocal guest spots by well known death metal vocalist Lord Worm (ex-Cryptopsy) and Will Smith (Artificial Brain) as well.
