Whether chopping a riff into pieces, reversing it, cutting it short, or messing with the tempo, CAR BOMB‘sunique style of progressive metal is the product of dissecting ideas and beating them to death. The result is equivalent to a jet engine propelling gravel into your skull. CAR BOMB combine the polyrhythmic and mathematical madness of Meshuggah and Dillinger Escape Plan with the rage and energetic fury of Coalesce and Converge. Though their songs are musically challenging, CAR BOMB refuse to dilute their ruthless execution. Their intent is to assault the listener in any and every way possible – compositionally, sonically, and lyrically.
CAR BOMB released their first full-length, Centralia, via Relapse Records in 2007. Called “esoteric and experimental,” by About.com, the band followed the release with a gaggle of live performances as well as a split 7″ with Burnt By the Sun before going on an unofficial hiatus.
CAR BOMB recently unleashed their new single “Third Revelation,” which features guest vocalist Joseph Duplantier of Gojira. The track will be on their new album w^w^^w^w. Check it out at THIS LOCATION.
