The group – which is made up current and former members The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn, and more – have put together quite an effort. I can’t say that I’m in love with it, maybe this particular style of music just hasn’t settled into my psyche, but it’s certainly worth a listen. What’s great about it is that it isn’t overly polished, giving it a very raw vibe; there are complex passages showcasing the outfit’s musicianship, which keeps things interesting; and its experimental nature makes it stand out. It still hasn’t fully grown on me but it certainly has its appeal. In any case, have a listen below and form you own opinions.
