Altera Enigma

Altera Enigma is the project of Jason De Ron, the former guitarist with the Doom Death band Paramaecium, and Jefray Arwadi, the guitarist, vocalist and songwriter with the progressive black metal band Kekal.

While both Jason and Jeff may be more well known for their metal, with Paramaecium and Kekal both releasing numerous critically acclaimed albums of intense, evocative metal, in actual fact both musicians are heavily influenced by Jazz and Progressive music in all it's forms. Altera Enigma was formed as an outlet for Jason and Jeff to work together on music that would push their boundaries, challenge them musically and allow them to broaden their horizons and explore music that they have not had a chance to before.

Stylistically, Altera Enigma falls within the bounds of Progressive Metal or Rock. Their music is harmonically and rhythmically complex, utilizing modulating time signatures, with rich Jazz-Fusion inspired chord progressions and memorable, emotion driven melodies, and expressive, stunning lead work.

While often straying into the bounds of Jazz-Fusion inspired rock, these two musicians -who have both been playing Death Metal for many years- have not forgotten to add the power and all consuming heaviness that great riffs can add to a song.

The end result is a band that seamlessly combines interesting and sophisticated harmony with complex and heavy riff work with staggering ease and proficiency.
