The Surrealist is an Ambient Experimental Metal Project based out of Boston, MA. The band is composed of guitarist Roopam Garg and sound designer Austin Rockman.
Synthesizing sounds from a multiplicity of genres—metal, ambient, minimalism, psychedelic, and soundtrack—The Surrealist is a reflection of the new era of instrumental music.
The Surrealist paints upon the canvas of silence and operates on the endpoints of the spectrum of human emotion.
Featuring sweeping, whirling guitar lines that cascade over blankets of plush, droning soundscapes and intricate modulating polyrhythms, The Surrealist breaks new grounds and transcends the separation of genres, leaving nothing but a pure sphere of sound.
