Taking avant-garde, jazz and metal to levels that should never happen due to becoming unlistenable. But somehow, it all totally works. It should be a excessive pile of shit, but it's full of insane awesomeness.
Man, this shit is intense. To the person that sees the NIN influence, I believe you're noting the industrial sound in their music, but I'd compare it more to Godflesh or Jesu (or Broadrick in general). Love the heavy avant-jazz permeating this music, and damn is that King Crimson cover heavy as fuck. Overall, they remind me a bit of the newest album from Unexpect (Fables of a Sleepless Empire), though Shining are more heavy on the jazz (they use strings and piano instead of sax) and Shining is more industrial, though they both are influenced by electronic's structuring.
And I thought that the most crazy Metal ever made was from Strapping Young Lad.... How stupid could I be? This is crazier, Blackjazz is in my top 10 of 2010. Finally a band how does something innovative in Metal, they created a new genre called Blackjazz :D
