Okay- i don't know who they are, but this music is: well................different.

I really don't know how to take it...

However- i wanna know what you guys think.

Tell me, why you think that some of the youtube comments give them praise, and some say they suck.

...i'd say "Enjoy!" but i can't be sure of it unsure.gif

They are Behold... The Arctopus. I have all their albums and EP's. They are incredible musicians. A bit hard for most to get their head around and enjoy but a great band for sure smile.gif

They are just really different and the music is very technical. The EP they have the Nano whatever lol has a track on it in particular with this acoustic section and it is beautiful. The music is just fun to listen to every so often to listen to the crazy music that can be created on guitars. It's just Technical Math Core/Jazz

Certainly not everybodys cup of tea. I like dancing to it at our rock night in Nottingham and scaring everybody also biggrin.gif

Seen it before, and it's definitely not my piece of cake, although I've got to say that RG565 is sexy.

I think it's pretty good, it's always good to have experimental bands out there... Though I don't think that I could ever listen to it and enjoy it. blink.gif

To organized confusion: Since you like this, can you show me any bad music like this? Just so I can see the difference. I know it's a weird request but it would help me to understand this.

Do you take credit card?

Must admit, this is as Iluha said, experimental. But like a frankenstein or similar experiment...

I like Behold...The Arctopus. I've known about them for a while but haven't listened to them a lot but I think it is pretty sick.

there are some good ideas, but I don't like this kind of music. I love progresive but I NEED a melody. For example SPASTIK INK are a great band and I like them is pretty weird music but have good melodies. This music based in disonances is horrible (It will me good in small peaces, for instance 10-20 second, but more is just boring).

I saw a video of them a while back, it may be that one, I haven't watched it since I am at school, but I think they are an example of awesome musicians don't always mean good music.

To each their own though.

I don't really see any musical quality, although they have pretty good technique. It sounds kinda like the Chromatic scale gone horribly wrong. laugh.gif

That video isn't really a song. Check out the link I posted. If you want stuff like this anybody else then like Juan says Spastic Ink is a pretty good band to check out. A bit more accessible also.
