anybody heard of these guys? this is honestly the most talented music i've ever heard, and i've heard alot. not only are they talented, they make good music too ( for the most part at least). kind of an acquired taste though. some of my personal favorites are:

alcoholocaust

sensory amusia (at like 1:30 in to like 2:20 it has the most beautiful melodic passage/bridge thing i've ever heard)
sorry no link

exospacial psionic aura
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=c96l-iCiU9w

you will be reincarnated as an imperial attack spaceturtle (lol)

I think they are damn cool. Found out about them a while ago, and loved the idea of a warr guitar.

Tbh though, I think I prefer a bit of Psyopus, I do love Psyopus.

Uggghhhh I hate them and yes I've listened to them plenty........

A huge amount of technical ability does not necessarily mean you make good music or are talented at writing it!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course these guys have insane talent and that Warr guitar is pretty cool, but their songs are just random, pointless shredding with no soul or emotion

Just my opinion

PS: I also agree that I prefer Psyopus, they at least have some sort of direction in their songs

Use the search button, there's like three threads on them already. But I agree, one of my favorite bands.

So I take it that you didn't listen to the outro for Exospacial Psionic Aura?


And don't come with that load of bull about emotion.

No emotion. This is just noise, not music.

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean its "not music"

Well, too me, Music has to have some emotion buried in it, which when you hear, you can tell that it was written and composed by a human being. I don't hear any emotion in the band, so, to me, they are not music, when indeed they may be music to many others. I just don't feel them. When I listen to them, I get the same feeling that I would get if I heard a car starting, or the wind blowing; that I am hearing sound, but I don't classify that sound as music.

Quote by Wikipedia
Music is an art form in which the medium is sound. Common elements of music are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture.


I know you said in your opinion, but it's still music whether you like it or not. I'm not going to ridicule for not liking a band, since that's a stupid thing to argue over, but saying they aren't music is a stupid way to make your argument.

Yes, they are music. I did not really make myself clear in my post, sorry. I just do not perceive them as music, thus I don't like them. Sorry about the mix up.

Okay gotcha, don't want to start a pointless argument here. If you just don't like them, then it's cool with me.

Sorry to be the one to pick a fight, YET AGAIN

But if you claim this is just pointless noise with no emotion I think you need to check your facts before spouting OPINIONS.

Emotion is subjective. Emotion can be rage, love, even confusion. Just because you find the music boring does NOT mean that it's devoid of emotion, soul or skill.

It may have been a misunderstanding, but if you phrase it badly, I'm one of the people who will pick you apart on it.

FFFUUUCCCKKKK I need to get Skullgrid again. Canada was amazing.
And you can't spell funeral
without fun
hope you had a good time
cuz now your life is done
#29
Cant stand them at all. I respect their abilities deffenetlly, but I just can't stand it. I wouldn't mind learning some songs though for some techincal exercises. And I will also give them credit for pulling this stuff off live pretty well, but I wish they would go in a less seemingly random direction.
#30
They sound quite nice, I'm surprised the majority of the UGers call this 'noise', yet mindlessly whore bands like Necrophagist who display similar technicality if not more, if you want to stick to the same old repeat verse riff four times followed by cheesy blues fill and drumroll then go on, but don't come here to bash what may not be the most conventional music but deserves as much praise as bands like aforementioned Necrophaggot and others recieve.

If everyone had a disclaimer in their sig, like I do, then we wouldn't have these kind of disagreements.

I'm not surprised at all, Necrophagist have considerably more melody going on for the most part.

I love BTA though; the middle section of Canada is made of win and then some.

Live video of Canada. Not quite as good as the album version though.

They are absolute proof that being technically skilled means absolutely nothing without good songwriting.
