"Strength and Sanity" is the work of bassist/composer Justin Almquist. More than 2.5 years in the making, he composed, performed, recorded and mixed the entire album.
Justin has a broad taste in music, having played in jazz, rock, R&B, and funk groups, along with stints in choir and orchestra. These days he focuses mostly on composition, with an interest in creating emotional melodies and compelling atmospheres regardless of genre.
Strength and Sanity brings elements from the many sub-genres of metal along with the emotional weight of post-rock, ambient, electronic music, and the darker aspects of jazz and progressive.
