Math rock

Math Rock is a relatively new sub-genre of rock music, characterized by complex, atypical rhythms (often including irregular stopping and starting), frequent use of irregular time-signatures, and dissonant, angular guitars. Math rock peaked in the mid-’90s, when groups like Polvo and Chavez had small but dedicated followings among indie rockers on college campuses. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Hella

    @themelonn De hecho casi todas las bandas están influenciadas por ambos géneros aunque obviamente casi siempre predominará uno más. Hay bandas que componen en escalas muy de lo normal y otras que no. Así que eso de difícil de escuchar, depende de cada uno y del intérprete obviamente. Si llegas a encontrar casualmente math-rock puro con pocas influencias fuera del math-rock, encontrarás que de hecho sí es más complejo que el promedio pero toparnos con esas casualidades no es nada común y es casi un milagro. Saludos.

    Diría que es más experimental que post-rock. Por lo tanto más difícil de oír para los oídos iniciados.
