Psyopus - Our Puzzeling Encounters Considered (2007)


Psyopus is fast and disjointed, freakishly so in an era of "spazz." The Rochester, NY band makes Hella sound like Low. Atonal guitar lines spiral at warp speed, hurtling through uncountable time signatures and turn-on-a-dime changes. Drums keep step, adding insult to injury. A few precedents exist for this sound, though they're dissimilar. Behold…The Arctopus lacks vocals, Buckethead lacks songs, Ephel Duath is moodier, Cryptopsy is more metal, and with the Dillinger Escape Plan, one can tell where rock's boundaries begin to fray. Psyopus, however, has leapt into the unknown.
