Mystic is basically a one-man project, except for the vocals that will be handled by two guest singers. Mystic has tons of ideas and sketches, and will finalise these into a demo in due course of 2011/2012. Mystic combines influences mostly from metal, progressive rock and jazz. Guitars are real; bass, keyboards, drums and other instruments are programmed or played (sometimes through a MIDI guitar-synthesizer).
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Your musical influences
Fates Warning, Allan Holdsworth, Meshuggah, Cynic.
What equipment do you use?
Ibanez RGR270, equiped with a Roland GK-3 hexaphonic pickup
Cheapo acoustic with piezo

These are all rough sketches (to get the compositions out of my head). I will record the guitar tracks tightly this year and then see if I can mix and pre-master it to make it sound good.
