I also personally LOVE the melodies. They took the longest for me to get into but I think they’re brilliant.
Thanks so much for sharing Syn. I heard about them through a post on your musical influences. I listened to their self titled album and it’s by far one of the greatest things I’ve listened to in a while. I’ll definitely give this album a tryYo family! Wanted to start doing a monthly album discussion based on records that have changed my life and musical path. We are kickin it off with Mr. Bungle’s insanely ambitious sophomore release, Disco Volante.
Jimmy made me a mixtape of some of the most avant-garde shit I had ever heard at 13 years old ranging from Primus, The Residents, Bungle, and beyond.
I HATED this mixtape with a passion for two whole weeks until a small spark of curiosity grew rapidly into a deep and profound obsession.
The mixtape had songs from the previous eponymous record which, as obscure as it was to me at the time, paled in comparison to my first listen of Disco.
Already a huge fan of the band, I did however HATE this record for two whole weeks until a spark of curiosity grew rapidly into a deep and profound obsession.
I was pissed that Patton didn’t sing, Spruance didn’t solo, no clown music etc. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Patton’s vocals and the entire bands performance interwoven throughout a chaotically beautiful and terrifying “soundtrack”, transcended anything I’d ever heard before. One of my favorite song writers of all time, Trevor Roy Dunn, composes masterful and incredibly singable atonal brilliance throughout. The man is nothing short of pure genius in my humble opinion.
I now focused solely on orchestrating my guitar parts with deep sensitivity towards the soul of the song. This gift of perspective was the greatest of any in my musical history.
Like ALL of my favorite things in life, this is an acquired taste, so please, give it time.
All my love,
I guess you didn't want to offend him but... We all know Chads Tone is way heavier.Wow. Syn, the Syn, actually replied to my Nickelback joke, I'm honoured.
But seriously, we should do a Nickelback discussion, my man, what do you say? His tone is as brutal as yours.
I remember I tried to listen to Mr. Bungle a couple of Times.
Last time, a couple of months ago I Made it through Like 90% of a Long track of theirs, can't remember the Name though.
It went from "wtf is this?" To "okay, I See where we're getting" to "this makes me really uncomfortable".... Didn't make it to the end
