Avant-garde metal outfit Polkadot Cadaver’s new album Last Call in Jonestown comes out on May 14th, and pre-orders are ending in just a few days. I discovered this band last year when I saw them at The Palladium, and their unique take on metal really intrigued me. Their lyrical content is often very offensive and off color, but completely awesome at the same time. This band really tries to make a statement by doing things in their music that most people would be afraid to do, and just not giving a shit. They also write some pretty catchy stuff and … Read more

This may be the album of the year for me ALREADY for our blog’s style of music taste.
The best way to introduce anyone to this band is by stating it’s BTBAM on Acid. Now I know it’s a horrible horrible analogy but it helps you understand the structure of the song flow at least.
Next up I want to state that this album is simply brilliant. It is so wacky and spontaneous but yet is so easily able to follow. Now some people may not like the album as a whole since it goes in so many directions in … Read more

I think the best way to describe the music of Pryapisme is by reading the terms they put in “tag” on their bandcamp page : 8bit black metal disco metal progressive rocococore chamber music electronic experimental jazz nintendocore.
Indeed, this French outfit is creating some really interesting music. A mix of electro with a certain taste of metal, and a lot of whatever… The musicians are truly skilled and obviously creative.
You can play this while receiving your eccentric and marginal guests for dinner, or when trying to figure out the meaning of life, gazing … Read more
