More Info

Thinking Metal was originally formed in 1995 as Thinking Metal Productions and its primary focus was as an outlet for the musical ambitions of writer, instrument designer and composer David J. Hughes.

The company released 2 discs on the original Thinking Metal label, The Infection of Time and Connexion, both by T-Bass UK.
