Escapethecult

This is one of the more unlikely band formations in some time, in terms of nationality as well as musical styles. There's an American drummer, a Swedish guitarist, a Romanian vocalist from a French band, and a bassist from a Russian band. And what could a guitarist from Mercyful Fate have in common with the Primus sticksman? Only in this modern world could such a project have come together. Anyway, All You Want To is the album from this unlikely quartet, and it certainly sounds absolutely nothing like the aforementioned two bands, instead opting for a slightly quirky, laid-back progressive rock/metal, with all four members contributing equally and uniquely. There's certainly a lot going on, and times things feel just a bit unstructured, with the guys strutting their stuff but without cohesion within a given song. This isn't all manic flashy musicianship (though there's plenty of individual moments), but it is experimental, unique, and a bit odd. Time will tell if this becomes an ongoing concern or if this is a one-off.
