Collapsar - Integers

Label: Escape Artist
Year: 2007

Knotted, dense, instrumental metal and post rock combination. That's the short version.
Slightly longer version is, two guys from Icepick Revival hook up with another guy and proceed to write a complex strain of math-metal in the bowels of Louisiana, but with zero of the sludgy dirt of their southern kinfolk. Taking cues from gut punching metallic hardcore, post rock, math rock, and a dash of prog rock and you get weirdness that has elements of: American Heritage, Keelhaul, Pelican, Locrian, Cauldron, and The Fucking Champs. Big, sprawling songs that twist and turn and then twist and turn back onto themselves, and conceivably you, the listener.
If you like to get weird with a mechanical pencil, then by all means, get weird with this.
