Mutoid Man - Helium Head

Mutoid Man is the deranged love-child of Ben Koller and 
Stephen Brodsky - from Converge and Cave In - and is set
to punish your ears and mind.


Breakneck guitar riffs are spewed out with pin-point precision 
and power, giving the songs a frantic edge which threaten to
crash and burn into the stratosphere before blowing up - but - 
due the the songwriting strengths of this band, this never
happens.

Instead the tracks whirl and spin, morphing from crazed, distorted
hymns of violence into solid tunes of noise rock pounding out slabs
of sonic disturbances. Constant motion within the song passages
leave you no time to catch your breath among the riffs, solos and
intricate interplay between guitar, drums and the yelped out
vocals.

This is great stuff that demands repeated listens - I could of
done without the cover version of The Animals "Please
Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood"  - good version but I 
would of liked another original. 

Get from Magic Bullet Records
