Dysrhythmia - The Veil of Control. Saw them in Philly for the first time in a couple years on Friday, and as always they did not disappoint. I hadn't actually bought their disc yet so I picked up a copy from Kevin and have been enjoying it since. These guys are reliably excellent.
I haven't heard it yet but Kevin and the boys never disappoint. And what a live band!
Colin is still playing the exact same rig he played when you guys toured together. Still has the stolen-but-recovered 5150, even.
I know I'm just a member of the chorus, but I only need their first two albums, both of which are very nearly untouchable pieces of spacey, tech-y prog-death/thrash. I love those albums SO SO much!
You're missing out. Cybervoid is a gem! It's also their best-sounding album.
I wonder if Pharaoh could afford a Pierre Remillard mix?
Crowd-fund it, man! The kids love Pierre!
The kids know Pierre? And Pharaoh? I somehow doubt it!
Gory Blister - Promo 2002, Promo 2003. Found these in the archives. 3 songs on each, all but one of which were re-recorded for later albums. These guys would probably be much better known were it not for their terrible name.
That's why I didn't get 'Art Bleeds' until late '03. How can so talented a band exercise such poor discretion?
Did you know the name is actually a reference to the blisters the drummer got on his hands from playing? It's not even trying to be evil, that stupid name. It'd be like finding out Rotting Christ was named after a piece of moldy easter chocolate or something.
Martyr - Demo 2003. If only the third album had been as wild as the two songs on this demo.
'Feeding' was always a disappointment for me, and still is. I worship 'Warp Zone' and "Perpetual Healing" is as good or better than anything on that album. 'Feeding' backs off the tech throttle and replaces it with more blasting, bad vocals (but let's face it, Martyr never had good vocals), and some unintentional lyrical comedy.
Yeah. It's still an okay album, but the least of their three albums in my book.
You should check out 'First & Magical.' Fantastic record, and one of the best from that fertile scene (Paraxism, Disgrace, Convulse, Pakeni, etc.)
I did check it out, and I liked it. Not an easy album to acquire, though, at least on CD.

I really don't know shit about the early Finnish scene. Never heard any of those other bands, I don't think.
Maybe I was wrong about Xysma.
You were.
In fairness, I always liked their name!

Matt
