Song of the Week: Sick Boogie Murder by Trepalium

Over on a forum I’m part (join up here)of a game was started where we would pick a person and try to find a song/band that they have never heard and would dig.  Turned out to be pretty fun and lots of new music was discovered by all.  One person tagged me with the song I chose as The Song of the Week, and boy is it a doozy.  Take the funky styling of Dog Fashion Disco and blend it in with some Cannibal Corpse and you will get “Sick Boogie Murder” by Trepalium.  I’ve gone on to check out some more stuff by the band and found them to be one hell of a great hidden gem with a really fun and unique take on the groovier side of death metal.  Well worth checking out if you dig this tune, which honestly, you should.  I mean who couldn’t love a death metal song with full on Louis Armstrong style scat vocals jazzing up the tune!  Enjoy!!  Peace Love and Metal!!!!

Album Review: Separate Realities by Trioscapes

How to describe this record, hmm.  OK, Trioscapes, a band made up 3 insanely talented musician (Dan Briggs of BTBAM on bass, Walter Fancourt on saxophone and flute, and Matt Lynch on drums and electronics) that play a fun and crazy form of psychedelic jazz fusion progressive metal on their debut record Separate Realities.  The record sounds like if you were to take Frank Zappa, Rush, late 70’s early 80’s era King Crimson, some famous jazz fusion artist I don’t know, BTBAM, and Primus and put them in a blender with a ton of happy pills.  The results come out something quite unique and very refreshing.  From front to back there is never a dull moment in the time melding assaults and groove laden jazz freakouts.  If you’re looking for something upbeat and different to listen to, I have a feeling you will be loving this record, especially if you are a prog fan.
