Genghis Tron

Crucial Blast, 2006

Holy hell! Genghis Tron’s debut full length recording takes their 8-bit/synth-pop/grindcore/prog blend up to the next level! In a blistering 30+ minutes, you get treated to grindcore maelstroms, INSANE programming (remember The Locust? Yeah, their keyboard work has NOTHING on these guys!), some of the most ear-piercing grind vocals ever recorded, and amazingly complex structures. The instruments used are "guitars, synthesizers, vocals, computers, lap steel, and some bass". Needless to say this is crucial for any grindcore/avant-metal fan, and I’m certain fans of any avant-garde style can find something to love here. ESSENTIAL!
