Following on from his critically acclaimed albums Assimilate Regenerate (2011) and The Human Affliction (2015), Spiritual Machines is the new cyberpunk-inspired instrumental guitar album by Paul Wardingham.
Complete with the melodic choruses, mechanical metal riffs and hi-tech futuristic shredding that Paul has become known for, Spiritual Machines is perhaps his most accessible work to date.
“I really wanted to get back to a style that I was doing a few years before writing Assimilate Regenerate. More focused on melody and riffs than on lots of guitar solos. Spiritual Machines is more metal, very song orientated and has a kind of raw industrial quality to it”
“There’s an energy to this album that’s very different to my previous works”

1. The Awakening

Paul Wardingham is creator of future metal shred, Assimilate Regenerate and The Human Affliction.
Paul Wardingham is creator of future metal shred and the critically
acclaimed guitar albums Assimilate Regenerate and The Human Affliction
It’s been called “the best instrumental guitar album in years” by Christian Muenzner (Necrophagist and Obscura) and “the best guitar discovery of 2011” by Andy James, along with praise from guitar legends Dino Cazares (Fear Factory) and Jeff Loomis (Nevermore, Conquering Dystopia).
Described as instrumental cyber metal, Wardingham’s style combines 7-string mechanical riffing, melodic choruses, industrial synths and otherworldly solos to create visions of a futuristic world.
THE HUMAN AFFLICTION
The Human Affliction is Paul Wardingham’s highly anticipated concept album released July 14th 2015. Featuring 11 tracks and incredible guest solos by Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry) and Stephan Forte (Adagio)
“The Human Affliction is a continuation of the themes that inspired Assimilate Regenerate: The future, technology and it’s effect on humanity. More than that, it’s a soundtrack to a dystopian future. Set in a high-tech low-life world, where humanity is blissfully unaware of the dangers of technological progress and the rise of artificial intelligence…..until it’s too late. The Human Affliction is my vision of this cyberpunk inspired landscape landscape and post- apocalyptic digital age where the listener can escape reality, amongst cyber metal grooves, cold atmospheric synths, futuristic electronica, emotional melodies and of course…hi-tech shred guitar solos!”
Paul uses 7-string and 8-string guitars, EMG pickups and Jim Dunlop strings and picks.
Paul’s music is for guitar fans of artists like Devin Townsend, Fear Factory, Soilwork, Scar Symmetry, Mnemic, Meshuggah, Disarmonia Mundi, Universum, Sybreed, and guitar players like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Jeff Loomis, John Petrucci & Andy James
