“Pay The Piper”, the debut album of THE MAD TRIST literally gasps towards you. As a vicious beast that can barely control itself. The record leaps upon you from the first second and in a high tempo one story unfolds into the other. THE MAD TRIST pulls you into the splashing virtual reality of this record. Nothing is what it seems. Nothing is what it is. Surprising turns oblige you to stay focussed, but surrender to the outrageous drive that sparkles of this record. Goose bump choirs, strings, church organs, heavy guitars, pounding basses, screaming loud or silent as a mouse. “Pay The Piper” has it all. A definite experience for both ear and spirit. Let the beast leap upon you and surrender to it.
With “Pay The Piper” as dream debut THE MAD TRIST has a bright future in its back pocket."
(Rock 'n Roll guru Eric Corton quoted)
