Chaotic Art

Albums I've been listening to lately at night that paint vivid scenes in my thoughts
10maudlin of the Well

Back when I was getting into more experimental metal, I, the uneducated, was in shock
when I heard the music brain child of Toby Driver. These guys supposedly use astral
projection as a muse to their music and I can definitely hear it. For a good hour while I'm
listening to this LP, my mind is floating through time and space just observing....being
Rec- Heaven and Weak, Girl With a Watering Can
9Circle Takes The Square
As The Roots Undo

THE classic screamo album for me. I don't even have to use my imaginatinon with
this CD, but thats not a bad thing in the slightest. CTTS's lyrics are pretty much
prose, every word brings a certain nuance to each set of lyrics. I would definitely
pay for a nice book with this band's lyrics enclosed within it
Rec- In the Nervous Light of Sunday, Crowquill
8I Would Set Myself on Fire for You
Believes In Patterns

Lovely true screamo album. Reminds me a bit of Mars Volta's Amputechure with all
the horns. I feel like I'm in an old school French Noir film.
Rec- Let the Jazz Band In and Six together for the whole effect
7Look What I Did
Atlas Drugged

Man, what up with me and these social commentary albums?
Anyways, I think about weird shit on this one: Dogs heading multi million companies, Dominatrices walking
their slaves on leashes, Bible Thumpers installing brain control
in church followers....You get the idea don't you?
Rec-My Girlfriend...Leo Strauss, Holding Pattern
6 Fear Before (The March of Flames)
The Always Open Mouth

Such a mature sound compared to the groups previous efforts. I guess I can say that
the album feels very Brave New World/We/Clockwork Orange. I can envision streets
without lively chatter and dilapidated hovels where people are living in fear (before).
Rec- Taking Cassandra to the End of the World Party
Samus Octology

Post-Metal represent! To me, I think this LP crafted the sound Thrice was looking for on
their Alchemy Index's 1-4. Every song encompasses the spirit of nature whether it be
water and air or fire and lightning. Words can't capture the emotions felt
Rec- Pistole
4 Shai Hulud
With Hearts Once Nourished with Hope and Compassion

When I hear this CD, I think of all the greed, bigotry, and gluttony we're so accustomed
to and I feel as if it's my job to change it
Rec- A Profound Hatred of Man
3Stray From the Path

Alright, wheres my goddamn bandanna and bricks? Feel like going out in the street
and hanging some capitalist pigs.
Rec- The whole thing, it's only like 20 minutes or so
2Touche Amore
...To the Beat of a Dead Horse

Oh man when I listen to this CD, I feel so melancholy and bleak as if the world was
bearing all its weight on me.
Rec- Honest Sleep and History Reshits Itself

Not chaotic in the sense of discordance, but this album is definitely busy. Makes me
think of living in a city like New York
Rec- check out Contemporary Disease and On a Gloomy Evening
