Is this the same Car Bomb that used to be on Relapse? They're still around?!? And they're djent now? Huh. Will investigate!

Yep! They were best known for the youtube documentary about struggling metal bands the made, which was super good. That was when they were on Relapse and were more of a mathcore band.

Now they sound like DEI-era Meshuggah with a tons of laser noises coming from weird moded whammy pedals or some shit. They record sans click track and a lot of their riffs move up and down in tempo and just really give you a sense of seasickness listening to it. Plus they have Deftones-esque cleans now too which are suprisingly great coming from some guy from Long Island with a backwards fitted baseball cap and jorts. They've really paid their dues and have been on pretty big tours recently with bands like Animals as Leaders and Periphery. The last album Meta was great as well, but this one is even more twisted.
