Quintus Interruptus

A musically unique song featuring The Unified One on lead guitar, “Quintus Interruptus” would’ve been very much at home on Quicksilver Night’s all-instrumental album “Asymptote” (2021).

“Quintus Interruptus” is not an afterthought to “Asymptote” but it had no place on any of Quicksilver Night’s other immediately forthcoming releases so we decided to release it as a digital-only single rather than wait for an entire album of similar material.

“Quintus Interruptus” is available at all major digital retailers.

I had an oddly mixed-meter groove in my head that I couldn’t expunge that we eventually developed into the song “Quintus Interruptus”. It began as a working title, something of a music nerd joke, because of the recurring pattern of 5/4 interrupted 4/4 but we eventually sort of collectively shrugged and decided to keep the title as it seemed quirkily appropriate.
