The anticipated full-length from avant-metal slayers Genghis Tron. Moving beyond the rapid-fire electro/grind genre-splicing of their debut EP, the band forms a more fluid and cohesive sound that mixes digital dreams with brutal heaviness and futuristic metal riffage. For fans of Melt-Banana, An Albatross, and Daughters.

Surprisingly, it's actually not too bad. The album's brevity should be praised, as anything in this vein much longer than thirty minutes or so runs the risk of biting the listener's ears right off. Length makes the record more palatable for replay value.
Considering that the vocals are as indecipherable as the next death metal band's, "Dead Mountain Mouth" is really an experiment in texture. Square wave wind chimes; too-perfectly-in-time, rabid-fire techno house drums; and digitally-created choral mirages play lieutenants to the raw meat guitars. If musical schizophrenia is your bag, you've arrived. Where, exactly, is another question. Simultaneously the past and the future?
Probably not, but it's an interesting listen nonetheless.
You would probably suspect such a diverse feat to sound hacked, and maybe cut-and-paste sounding. My friends, this is definately not another Horse the Band. The sampling is a far cry from being a mere gimmick. Genghis Tron achieve atmospheres like most grindcore bands are incapable of with the use of sampling, and not once in this entire album, does the sampling cut in pointlessly. The flow is never disrupted, and the atmosphere is constant and frightening. A perfectly demented, and clever creation.
Dead mountain mouth has some of the fastest heaviest stuff you'll hear. but it also has some really beautiful ambient parts that not only add to the eclectic sound of the album but really adds that extra push when they smash your skull after a quiet pretty interlude.
Seriously this album will rock your face off if you buy it. Genghis Tron deserves more credit than they get. One of the most innovative and talented bands I've heard in a long time. Buy this along with their EP Cloak Of Love, your mind will be blown.
