Colin Marston (born September 13, 1982) is an American musician and record producer residing in New York City. He graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in music technology in 2004, and runs Menegroth The Thousand Caves Recording Studios, located in Woodhaven, Queens, while not on tour with one of his four active bands. He is perhaps most famous for fronting the progressive metal band Behold... The Arctopus, in which he plays a Warr guitar, or for his work on bass guitar in the progressive metal trio Dysrhythmia. He is also known for his work in Krallice and the reunion lineup of Gorguts. Marston produces, masters, and mixes for artists such as Genghis Tron, Kayo Dot, Jarboe, Capillary Action, and Orthrelm, as well as his own bands.

Bands[edit]

Gear[edit]

In Dysrhythmia Marston plays an Ibanez BTB 6-string bass guitar with a pick into a Hartke 3500 head with an Eden 410 XLT cabinet and a Roland JC-120 guitar combo. In Behold... the Arctopus he plays a 12-string Raptor Warr guitar (which has been discontinued) as well as a "Metal" Series Warr guitar into the same amps plus an extra Crate 2x12 combo. He uses various distortion and delay pedals in both bands.[1] In Krallice, he uses a pre-2008 Ibanez Iceman guitar. In Gorguts he uses a similar set up with a Boss RC20XL, Morley Distortion, Boss Metalzone and Boss DD7 amongst other pedals.
