French electro-metal producer Remi Gallego (aka THE ALGORITHM) has announced the details of a brand new album ‘OCTOPUS4’, alongside a Kickstarter campaign with a difference!
Set for release on June 2nd 2014, ‘OCTOPUS4’ follows the groundbreaking debut ‘Polymorphic Code’, a record that redefined crossover music for the 21st century. The award-winning album (Metal Hammer Golden God ‘Best Underground Act’) generated an invite from ESPN (Disney) to write ten exclusive songs for the TV network, whilst simultaneously creating huge demand for worldwide touring, garnering slots on Australia’s Big Day Out and the UK’s Download festivals among many others.
‘OCTOPUS4’ marks the next evolutionary stage in THE ALGORITHM’s sound with 12 tracks plunging even further into the unexpected, unthinkable and unbelievable.
In association with BASICK Records and underground gaming developers Rogue Star Games, the new 12-track album will be exclusively available in CD and digital formats as part of a funding development for a brand new shoot-em-up space fighter, intended for future release on PS4, Mac OSX, Linux and Windows PC platforms.
Starting today (March 20th 2014) fans can pledge towards the campaign and in return receive an extensive number of rewards, including copies of ‘OCTOPUS4’. Not only that; once development is complete and ready to launch, the game itself will also feature an entirely new soundtrack, also scored exclusively by THE ALGORITHM.

You no longer have to back the Kickstarter to get the album since the Kickstarter failed. Since this is the case they’ve released a single from the album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTq1rVYrzAM#t=224&gl=CA
Would love if there were vocals to this. Good stuff though.
