Last week, New Jersey/New York-based progressive metal artists BINARY CODE released their long-awaited full-length album Moonsblood. BINARY CODE recently promised fans some gear-related videos, and today marks the launch of the first two! Guitar World is providing an exclusive look at the band’s two Moonsblood guitar play-throughs for the tracks ‘Immersion’ and ‘Dark Meditations’. The color effects on each video were chosen to match the mood of each track.

Guitarist Jesse Zuretti states, “My guitar partner in crime, PJ Spilletti, and I both used our brand new Mayones guitars in the videos. I can tell you right now, playing our songs a bajillion times has never been so easy because of those guitars. These guitars are cheat codes to our playing. I’m using a Mayones Regius 7M with Bare Knuckle Pickups (Juggernauts), and PJ is using a Mayones Duvel Elite 7 with Seymour Duncan Sentient/Nazgul pickups.”
Regarding the unique visual effects on the videos, Zuretti adds, “We filmed the play-throughs for ‘Dark Meditations’ and ‘Immersion’ with Nick Kusworth, who also does great work for Heavy Blog is Heavy. He used some really cool techniques for ‘Dark Meditations’, using an actual prism for this cool kaleidoscopic effect. We picked some cool lighting effects; the color gels we chose were picked for the mood of each song.”
BINARY CODE will launch an in-depth video detailing their recording and live rigs next week. Stay tuned!
BINARY CODE has new touring plans in the works, but before setting off on the road, they’ll perform on June 15th at Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ. Don’t miss this special show – the band plans to play Moonsblood in its entirety. Tickets are available from the venue – don’t miss this opportunity to see the band’s new opus live!
Moonsblood was engineered and mixed by Eyal Levi (August Burns Red, The Contortionist, Monuments) at Audiohammer Studios and mastered by Alan Douches (Suicide Silence, Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge) at West West Side Music. Moonsblood features new vocalist Oded Weinstock and offers up a heavy, melodic and progressive sound. Focused and tightly written, Moonsblood boasts powerful vocal hooks, huge, thundering riffs, gorgeous atmospheric tapestries and impressively technical musicianship and songwriting.
You can order Moonsblood via the band’s Bandcamp page.
