Tool, 311, Incubus, Limp Bizkit, Pink Floyd… Al Di Meola? Well, traces of Al Di Meola in Ontologics’ music might not be that apparent; however, if one were to pick a song from each of the rest of the aforementioned bands and stitch them together, the resulting collage will make up a typical Ontologics number. If that’s not overwhelming enough, none of the above bands can boast of incorporating such a wide range of influences – from alt rock, progressive rock, electronica, jazz, and rap to world music – in one single song, but Ontologics can. This might be a pretty lofty statement for this little known band from Providence, RI, but these guys are eclectic. After all, this rock band opened for Afroman. It just goes to show that genres don’t mean much to them.
