Album Review

Behold The Arctopus – “Horrorscension” – [Black Market Activities]

surferrosa   7/2/2013   A Library, CD


Unrelenting, super technical thrash-math-metal courtesy of madmen Mike Lerner (guitar), Colin Marston (warr guitar) and Weasel Walter (drums). This is total arithmetic annihilation. Double bass poundage, face melting riffage, impossible to follow headbanger candy. Some kind of monster with like seventeen tentacles playing all sorts of impossible harmonies and tying itself into fancy knots. All instrumental, fully structured and well rehearsed..these guys are locked together, always on the money…tighter than spandex. Colin Marston plays a warr guitar..kind of like a Chapman Stick, its got between 7 and 15 strings and makes for some crazy speed of light tapping all over this album. Horrorscension slays. Massive. -Surfer Rosa
