“This duo is dynamite, and they explode thunderously” - Daily Vault
ONTOLOGICS is an experimental, multi-instrumentalist duo that has been recognized for fusing genres like progressive rock, hip-hop, electronica, and jazz with sharp lyricism and an explosive live presence. Based in Providence, RI, the duo features singer/songwriter, Ian Campopiano and drummer, Matthew Walshe.
Their latest release, sophomore album, Drones From Home (11/06/15) features PNUT/Aaron Wills of 311.
Prior to working with Ontologics, PNUT said of the duo, “they turned this song into like a science fiction masterpiece. And if we can’t beat that, I think we should just do a cover of their song" - P-Nut, popdose.com interview, referencing “Go” demo
Ontologics’ debut album and sophomore release reached the Top 30 on the Relix Magazine/ Jambands.com national college radio chart for over three consecutive months and breaking the Top 10 with both records. The band achieved outstanding success on national specialty radio, reaching #16 on the FMQB Top 200 SubModern chart and #11 on the Alternative Specialty singles chart (KKBB).
Albums, Something To Needle Over, and Drones From Home have received scores of reviews and features noting their eclectic artistic depth and exploration of genre blurring.
"Ontologics prove masterful on Drones From Home...Cruising into a psychedelic territory, the duo creates an intriguing soundscape that reflects the thoughts inside the human mind." - Bill Copeland Music News
"There was never a doubt regarding the phenomenal musical ability of this outfit, but to exploit this skill fully and translate it into an album as brilliant as their debut requires equally skillful songwriting chops...the musicianship on par with its predecessor and even the songwriting is every bit as good...” - Daily Vault
"All of it is highly structured, and has for me, the feel of the jazz-inflected work of Frank Zappa, where precision, mixes with a restless, fidgety approach to the melody and song structure." - DPRP (Dutch Progressive Rock Page)
“...some will hear rock influences from groups like...Rage Against The Machine and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Others will hear more psychedelic rock influence by groups like Pink Floyd. And still others will hear some jazz-fusion influence reminiscent of guitar great Al Di Melola on tracks like 'Stretch Armstrong.' Ontologics' lyrics show a sort of political and social awareness by Campopiano and Walshe." - Roots Time, Belguim
Something To Needle Over was named one of the top DIY Albums of 2014 by the Indie Rock Cafe and has received numerous press features and reviews.
