Psyopus – Our Puzzling Encounters Considered (Metal Blade – 2007)
What do you get when you mix a failed audition for Limp Bizkit (true story, look it up) and Yngwie Malmsteen’s famous ‘more is more’ quote? Guitar athletics and obnoxious songwriting at an olympic level. The song ‘Insects’ is baffling, let alone the entire album. I’m pretty sure he released a guitar book called ‘Exploding Fingers’ too. This might not be on high rotation, but it’s perfect for annoying people and inspiring noises that aren’t meant to come out of a guitar.
For Fans Of: ‘Check us out on MySpace, we’ve got t-shirts and CDs down the back.’
