About Hermetic Science

Formed in 1996, Hermetic Science is one of the most innovative and unique instrumental bands to emerge from the 90s prog rock revival. In the years since, they have produced a substantial recorded legacy. "Ed Macan’s Hermetic Science" (1997) features them in their most unique configuration, as a vibes-bass-drums power trio whose music is at once shadowy and luminous. While mallet percussion remains prominent on "Prophesies" (1999), piano and analog keyboards play a newly important role as the music develops in the direction of edgy chamber rock. "En Route" (2001) achieves a heavier, more mainstream prog rock sound, with mallets shifting to a textural role. The compilation "Crash Course: a Hermetic Science Primer" (2006) collects remixed and remastered versions of the 20 original tracks from the band's first three albums. "These Fragments I Have Shored Against My Ruins" (2008) draws together the stylistic strands of earlier Hermetic Science, even while introducing a new post-rock sensibility and more modern digital sheen. “Out There: Live 1996-2006” (2019) reveals the band’s music unfolding new facets on stage. “Deliria: a Chronicle of 2020” (2023) returns the band to a live performance ideal after the extensive overdubs of their two previous studio albums: containing their darkest, heaviest music, it draws on elements as disparate as sixties post-bop, eighties and nineties metal, trance, and horror movie motifs to unflinchingly convey the madness, horror, and mayhem of 2020.
