Chameleon Technology – “Blank Canvas”


blank canvas

A bustling bass line and fading-in guitar help lead the “Blank Canvas” into its ferocious chorus, featuring heavily distorted guitars and in-your-face vocals that remind stylistically of the funk-punk put out by ¡Forward, Russia!. The vocal approach and guitar onslaught also compares favorably to Mclusky. The track was released alongside a music video (below), all of this being the work of Max Histrionic, the California-based singer/songwriter behind Chameleon Technology. Of the video, “high-quality audio of real bass and drums are synced with live action video of Histrionic performing both instruments and are then projected next to him playing guitar and singing live.”

His new EP Blank Canvas finds Histrionic “venturing into dark, personally/socially aware lyrical themes and aggressive punk, metal and industrial music.”
