Selfmadegod Records has announced the signing of one-man alternative metal band EGOIST from Bielsko-Biala, Poland.
EGOIST was founded by the very young and enormously talented musician Stanislaw Wolonciej (guitars, bass, drums, vocals, synthesizers, production, artwork). The artist was born in 1986 in Bielsko-Biala, Poland. In his 20s, Stanislaw's father was a bass player in the band Fatum. Music has always been present in Stan's home. Everything began when he was eight, though. His parents wanted him to take piano lessons, which he did for about four years.
One of the really cool things that he could have done, but never did, was take part in the makings of the debut album from C-187, together with Patrick Mameli (ex-PESTILENCE), who is his old-time hero. Patrick wanted him to appear on the album, but in the end Sean Reinert (CYNIC, DEATH) performed the drums.
In the summer of 2008, Stan decided to make a new piece of art. After months of changing equipment, customizing his guitar and drums, and recording ideas on pocket PCs he started the sessions for "Ultra-Selfish Revolution". It took about a month and a half. In the late phase of the recordings, Patrick Mameli recorded solos for "These Strange Things" and "/Not/ The End" at Stan's request. The music is a little more aggressive, much more alternative, and less progressive than what Stan worked on before.
A Polish label from Biala Podlaska called Selfmadegod contacted Stan, and told him that they are interested in releasing the material.
Stan is constantly musically active. And there will be much more collaborations and new projects with really fresh music in the future.
"Ultra-Selfish Revolution" will be released in the spring.
