With a primary objective of saving humanity from itself, extraterrestrial progmangling antiheroes, PSEUDO/SENTAI, will autonomously issue their Bansheeface debut full-length recording on human digital platforms next Friday, October, 16th.
A precursory lyric video for PSEUDO/SENTAI‘s “Classic Tactics Of Xenocide” opus has been exclusively premiered early via key horror/cinema portal, Bloody-Disgusting. Boasting a seemingly extrasensory, at times pentatonic style of cutting edge cyber-prog explosiveness, “Classic Tactics Of Xenocide” more than aptly portrays the band’s all-consuming sound as captured on Banseeface, And here, the track is not only audibly deployed, this configuration of the movement has been fitted to a unique, rolling visual theme created by Great Heights Design Video Studio, lyrically depicting the track’s dire message to humankind.
The PSEUDO/SENTAI league issues of this new audiovisual creation, “Humans regard themselves as absolute predators. We do not live with a fear of being manufactured prey. ‘Classic Tactics of Xenocide’ is set in a world where our food chain equals have decided to annihilate us in response to a perceived action, one that we ourselves didn’t even commit. There is little left to do but detach ourselves, escape from the situation and witness it through a safety lens until they finally come to get us. ‘Enjoy being you while you still can.'”
Bloody-Disgusting offers, “The track is a dissonant syncopation, a near carnival of sounds and melodies that culminates in a carousel of oddities and repetitive messaging. It’s almost like some odd A Clockwork Orange situation.”

Having been sent to Earth to save humanity from itself, the members of PSEUDO/SENTAI seamlessly unify their intense yet harmonious talents into laser beams of otherworldly musical dementia, as captured on the collective’s thirteen-song debut album, Bansheeface, the human ear interpreting these signals as sounds that resemble what we define as 8-bit video game effects, sci-fi movie soundtracks, and progressive/crossover metal. Five years went into the making of Bansheeface, the record based on about two-hundred pages of sheet music. On this diverse album, the color-coded primary members RED [a.k.a. Scott Baker] provides lead vocals, programming, guitar and lyrics, and BLUE [a.k.a. Greg Murphy] supplies lead guitar, programming and vocals, with cohort Jeff Eber (Dysrhythmia, Zevious) handling drums, Jon Ehlers (Bangladeafy) supplying bass, and Sawyer Schneider on guitar/stunt guitar. The nearly forty-five minute production was fully written and produced by PSEUDO/SENTAI, and co-produced by Colin Marston who handled all engineering, mixing, and mastering details at Thousand Caves: Menegroth.
PSEUDO/SENTAI will independently release Bansheeface digitally on October 16th. Preorders for the record can be placed via Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION.
