Tirao first album "Holozayss" sounds like a pop version of Linkin Park with Daft Punk vocals... Guitars and drums are very powerful, vocals was recorded with an autotune, by this way, it's the originality of this album. It is a one man band project created by Xavier Boscher, a french talentuous musician known for his work as lead guitarist in the group Misanthrope and also his many musical projects as Nebuleyes, Magnific Senses, Ultra Virtual Prog Band and solo albums...

Lyrics are in an imaginary language, like an alien poetry. It sounds very fantastic and futurist... The voice aren't very powerful compared to the rest of the music, but it doesn't matter, the uniqueness of this pieces is the concept: "As an alien who recorded an album on Earth inspired by his condition and his vision of Rock".
Overall Impression — 9
It sounds a bit like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Linkin Park, Daft Punk vocals... "Guitar Robot" is a great song very "radio" and "Arten Vox Humana" is a treasure of atmospheric avant-garde Rock, other are great with hard-rock sounds like "Ano Kiss Miss"... It's my discovering of this summer.
