Death metal meets fusion/Steve Vai meets Victor Wooten - this is some of the sickest, most intricate, mind-blowing music I've ever heard. I don't
hear many new bands that get me excited anymore but this trio is simply amazing. Meshugga fans might see some influence here. See what you think:
AAL's lack of vocals adds an interesting spin to the music, in such a way that it allows you to add your own coinciding story (if you so please), or
create your own worlds just by the sound. Or at least that's just my interpretation of it.
I actually just discovered these guys. It's pretty weird how the world works sometimes...I love my metal with some groove and I was craving some
groove heavy double bass patterns and then BAM, these fools came into my life haha. As others have mentioned, I'm also a meshuggah fan. If you
haven't already, you should check out the band T.R.A.M. it features members of animals as leaders, the mars volta, and suicidal tendencies.....think
animals as leaders, but in a jazz context.
Ah rush! I haven't listened to them in a good while. And I think your comparison is more than fair. Not to de-rail the thread, but might I consider
you a primus fan? Buckethead? (les claypool reference).
