Dysrhythmia - Barriers and Passages

Heavy Math-Rock. Guitar, Drum, and Bass, all tracks instrumental. Somewhere between arty math rock and post punk/rock and hipster metal, a mix between the VSS, Hella, Isis, and Shellac. *All FCC Clean.* Tracks 10; 9; 7, 8.

1. Dramatic, moody/mathy intro. [1:13]

2. Spastic, choppy guitar/bass flows into melodic instrumental passage; riles it back up at 1:05 for a more metaly finish. [3:06]

3. Unnerving horror film guitar intro leads into heavier mathy riffs. [3:14]

4. Dark and metaly, with atonal harmonics. [4:10]

5. More post-rock in parts (especially the last two minutes), with a centerpiece of guitar dissonance. Fakish ending at 20 sec. to go. [7:41]

6. Higher pitched with art rocky guitar in places and almost-traditional-metal guitar power chord riffs elsewhere. Second half more spastic and mathy. [2:23]

*7. Quck, forward-pushing guitar intro, builds nervously for a long time into a fuzzy slide at the end. [5:32]

*8. Very fast instrumentation, starting and stopping and rapid changing-up-of-things. [1:46]

**9. Slow and moody, meditative and beautiful. [4:25]

***10. Much more strutured, full on post-hardcore, post-metal, post-whatever AWESOMENESS. Lots of starting and stopping in the middle. [3:16]
