Biography

Iwrestledabearonce snap necks with a smile. On their debut album, It's All Happening (Century Media Records), the Shreveport, LA quintet embraces elements of grindcore, electronica, jazz, rock 'n' roll and even a little country for a chaotic aural concoction that's as intoxicating as it is incendiary. Produced by Ryan Boesch (Norma Jean) and released in June 2009, It's All ... Read more in Amazon's Iwrestledabearonce Store

Editorial Reviews

Iwrestledabearonce (iwabo) makes music that turns heads. Their spastic blending of genres maintains a cohesive sound that draws in listeners from many musical worlds. Love it or hate it - as long as they get a strong reaction to their music, the members of this band will feel that they have done their duty. Their debut full-length 'it's all happening.' was produced by producer-extraordinaire ross robinson (slipknot, the cure, at the drive in) with engineer/producer ryan boesch (eels, foo fighters) at the helm. The new album manages to take their complex sound one step beyond all expectations. You've be warned! For fans of the dillenger escape plan, converge

I know a lot of people unfortunately don't really care, especially if the words are incomprehensible, but they just don't make any sense and not in a good way.
J. C. Brown
The result is a very good debut that often even borders on being great.

Sounds like it's really a band trying rip off Mr. Bungle, playing rejected riffs from Gorguts' "Obscura", early Dillinger Escape Plan, and Arcturus's haunting and atmospheric singing (the one good thing about this band) and it's all being blended together carelessly without any actual thought. Although at times it's quite funny for example how badly funk and deathcore is being played back to back on "Danger in the Manger" (the videos are also quite entertaining), it's hardly anything pleasant overall, because it all sounds like carelessly pasted collages of bland riffs, atonal playing, and bad genre shifts rather than some form of actual character or even some sense of skill. Plus I've heard a lot of the things like this done better before and placed in right times and with remarkable playing, so you fauxhemians telling me to open my mind to it isn't going to work on me but if you still want to enjoy it anyways, that's fine. I'll be listening to those other bands as well as Sigh that show actual sense of musical knowledge and churn out substantial characteristics and replay value rather than bands like these that take from other bands and act random that stand out just for the sake of it. As for Krysta Cameron, she'd be better off playing adult contemporary instead. Yes, I even find some of that music (especially Dido) substantial compared to this.

If these guy are really good players, I'd like to hear them actually play jazz music by itself.

Since there is singing on this Cd, It's All Happening reminds me of Tori Amos, the only difference is that the vocalist in Iwrestledabearone Growls, but parts of this album sounds a lot like Tori Amos, I know this sounds weird, but for me that's what I hear. Iwrestledabearone is good, but not great just yet could be better. I can listen to this album without getting bored with it. I like death core bands that growl, not sing, but Iwrestledabearone does it great. I think Iwrestledabearone has potential to do well.

One thing about IWABO is that they are aiming to be completely ridiculous, and that is ok. If you like metal/grindcore that is spastic, unstructured, and full of wild and crazy sounds then this is for you. Someone said that the songs (as well as album art) is a mess and to me, that is exactly what this band wants you to think. They present the idea that they don't give a **** what you think about them.

So I would say if you're looking for something completely whacked out and you don't mind trying new things, pick this up. I have a few complaints though about this band. 1, experimental is great and progessing in music is wonderful...but there is such a thing as being experimental for the sake of being experimental. There are odd changes in this album that just make no sense. The jazzy riff fusion that is becoming more popular in metal just doesn't fit. The off key vocals SOMETIMES work, but as a whole, I would have either cleaned them up or left them out and dumbed down the effects. It honestly sounds like IWABO is just throwing things in left and right with the intent of making the song sound aimless and honestly, a bit corny and stupid. You can clearly tell these are highly skilled, extremely talented, and above all precise musicians. Why waste those attributes making music that is just unpleasant to listen to? Just because it changes riffs every 5 seconds doesn't mean it is a "well structured song".

::THIS IS NOT BASED ON FACTS!:: I don't know how true this is but once a guy told me "Oh I went to an IWABO show and the singer saw a kid wearing a My Chemical Romance shirt and she walked up to the front of the stage and punched him in the face!

This band does a lot of stuff at once, so they must be really unique and aspeshul! There's a lot of stuff going on in the album art, so you can tell this is RANDOM and WACKY like my Invader Zim DVDs XD. You could errantly tune through radio stations and get the same effect, but Century Media respects your intelligence enough to know you'd rather buy this instead.

This new record builds on the best parts of their EP, and absolutely takes it to the next level. This is the most inventive thing that's happened to metal in...well, since I can remember. Aside from a few so-called metal purists out their this should be well-received by fans of heavy music. I'm not typically fond of melodic vocals, but the vocalist has really honed her skills since the last recording. My only real beef is it's lacking lyrically. I know a lot of people unfortunately don't really care, especially if the words are incomprehensible, but they just don't make any sense and not in a good way. That's not to say they're trite or cliche-- not at all, in fact, they just seem jumbled and nonsensical. Otherwise, highly recommended!

You could just look to other bands who have been blending genres for years now, with much more valid musical theory, with more success, and in less gimmicky ways, who also don't have the annoying "I'm too ironic to even laugh at how funny am I" vibe. Just sayin'. The girl is really good at screaming, and fine at singing...I think. It's hard to tell when everything is drenched in this much delay/reverb. Either way it comes out good on the other end of the computer/mic. But still, eh...just listen to Between the Buried and Me or Tetrafusion or something. : )
