Ben Mayn What you play is rather complicated. It's the same kind of experience I had with Captain Beefheart's 'Trout Mask Replica'.

Only for completionists (2%). Skullgrid' was released in 2007 as the debut album of BEHOLD. The ARCTOPUS and their superb masterpiece 'Canada', that was introduced by my progr mate, has called me upon their turf. Yes I've got knocked out completely by the track where every piece is played without any breath nor relief at all.

Album Name Skullgrid. Data de lançamento 16 Outubro 2007. Labels Metal Blade Records Black Market Activities. Estilo de MúsicaExperimental Metal. Skullgrid' is a complete headfuck of an album, its technical fret wizardry terrifying in its complexity. the Arctopus are metal on the Dillinger Escape Plan/Botch/Psyopus edge of reality, an amalgamation of g/jazz/anything else really that drips with melody and confusion in equal amounts.

Behold The Arctopus is what happens when the concept of technicality is stretched to it's very limits. Because of this, the band has a bit of a bad reputation throughout the music world. The band was infamously named "the worst band in the world" in a popular YouTube video and has been criticized endlessly for the "lack of feeling" in their music. The album starts off with the unending whirl of 16th notes and tuplets that is the title track, Skullgrid, before diving headfirst into the shining star of the album, Canada. I may be biased, having listened to this song more times than the number of brain cells I have, but this is truly one of the finest works of avant-garde music I've ever heard.

Behol. he Arctopus is an American avant-garde metal band from Brooklyn, New York, formed in 2001. Behold The Arctopus was formed by Colin Marston and Mike Lerner, who had been playing guitar together for over a year-and-a-half by the time they found a drummer. Their demo We Need a Drummer (on which a drum machine was used) was picked up by drummer Charlie Zeleny. Zeleny met Lerner and Marston and impressed the duo. He was immediately asked to join the band.
