Biography

Genghis Tron want to eat your brains.

Well, maybe they don’t, but they do want to at least poke at it a little. Their new album ‘Board Up The House’, evokes vivid emotional responses from panic to relief, hope to despair, and just about everything in between. And the best way to manipulate moods in such a way is to manipulate sounds, which is what Genghis Tron does ... Read more in Amazon's Genghis Tron Store

Editorial Reviews

The debut EP from Poughkeepsie-based trio GENGHIS TRON. Cloak of Love is a virulent pop mutation that seamlessly splatters acrobatic shred and machine gun blastbeats across soaring synth pop anthems and electronic melodies. Five tracks of absurd brutalia and electro pop glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Synth-pop grindcore? Hell yeah! December 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I heard about this record through the proverbial grapevine. While driving two hours to see Converge, I asked my friend if he had this on his iPod (which was hooked up to the car stereo), since he has a lot of good indie/metal/hardcore stuff on his computer and iPod. He put it on, and for about the time taken to cover 20 miles of I-71, I experienced sonic euphoria. OK, enough hyperbole. With their juxtaposition of electronic music and brutal grindcore, Genghis Tron have created something that eclipses the chaos one expects from behemoths like the Dillinger Escape Plan, the Locust, Pig Destroyer. I read an interview with one bandmember where he pnpointed the vastly different tastes of each member: he likes metal (Botch, Burzum, Brutal Truth, Converge, Cryptopsy, Immortal), another was an electronica DJ (Autechre, Spahex Twin) while the third liked his indie rock (Drive Like Jehu etc.). It is hard to believe that people with such varied tastes could find something in common to come together and record music, but like in this case, when they do, the product is amazing. Go buy this EP, and wait for the full length (which, at the time of writing this review, the band have begun work on).

4.0 out of 5 stars Grindcore + 80s electro? January 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sounds like a bit of a joke doesn't it? A bit of a gimmick. I wondor who's idea in the band it was to mix melodic electro/space-rock with extreme metal and melodic shredding but whoever it was I applaud them. Not only is this a hybrid of different styles, its also a hybrid of two different approaches to songwriting - making serious and melodic music and making fun, catchy and quirky music. Cloak Of Love really is a great little EP. Its only 12 minutes long, but those 12 minutes are so good you'll find yourself listening to it two or three times in a row. If you want something a little different that doesn't sound like its trying too hard to be different, I suggest picking it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars You gotta dig this! May 1, 2005
By SeanR.
Format:Audio CD
Ghengis Tron lay down a serious groove that quickly changes from 80's style alternative to gut wrenching grindcore. There are bits of heavy metal and electronica and even something that sounds like thematic horror movie music. The only complaint that I could possibly think of is that the disc isn't nearly long enough.
