Questionable Content mastermind Jeph Jacques began his Deathmole Kickstarter with the seemingly humble goal of $9,500. His intention was to raise the funds to record Permanence, a studio-produced album with a professional engineer. The Kickstarter began August 11th and ended last night at Midnight. In those 30 days, Jacques saw his goal shattered and the final tally reached an astonishing $141,115. This allowed Jacques to create several stretch goals that include a vinyl issue, custom guitar picks, a 20-page comic book, and even a documentary about the making of the album.
Deathmole is instrumental metal, heavily influenced by bands such as Meshuggah and Gojira as well as post-rock acts Explosions In The Sky. To get a taste of the sound, head on below to listen to Advances (which will see a re-recording courtesy of a Kickstarter stretch goal).
