what you mean by the 'wrong type' (because it's not drone and doesn't involve a female somewhere in the lineup?), but not enough people realise how amazing this band was. Dip into their stuff pre-4 Plugs (which is where they started laying the groundwork for their eventual digi-metal/punk/bubblegum pop sound), and there's an amazing, really truly amazing punk band spanning back to '89 with tunes/ideas/lyrics far more worthy of attention than they ever got over here.
Download their '94 album PARK - here's track 5 (koen e ato sukoshi):
That's the whole point though: they were a million miles away from all this.
While Fear Factory et al. went at it hammer and tongs with faces heavily po and tunes (at least the majority of them) ponderous and feeling tacked-on (Resurrection and Descent fully excepted), Mad Capsule Markets were genuinely funny (splicing metal with bubblegumpop), and completely aware of what they were doing: the range of their influences bore themselves out throughout entire tracks and tunes felt completely at home within the noise. There was nothing forced about them - while I always imagined Fear Factory piecing together tunes and heavy verses from a previous compiled stock-pile of each, MCM songs never felt as though they placed different values on their different components, they... ah, they just worked.
That Gaga Life chorus, right at the end where it all just explodes in a firework of 'YEAH!'s and it sounds like Simba from the Lion King having its way with metal before leaving the next morning and never calling its sorry ass back.
Wonderful, wonderful band.
it's pretty sadistic.....brilliant sing along chorus though
I couldn't escape them when i was over :(
They need to stop this hiatus rubbish and tour again. Cistm Konfliqt was freakin' sweet.
DELETE THE STREAMIN' FREQUENCY FROM THE FEAR SIDE! \m/
when I was 13. I'm gonna put on their 'Osc-Dis' album now, see if it still makes me feel like I'd be racing motorbikes through Tokyo by this age.
that's all I've heard and it was absolutely wonderful
These guys supported rage against the machine didn't they? surprising they aren't more popular in the west
which is OSC-DIS, 010 and Cistm Konfliqt. There older stuff is quite hard to get apparently. Saw Digidogheadlock on amazon marketplace for £100 once. :S
But yeah, 010 and Cistm Konfliqt are both worth getting, seeing as you loved OSC-DIS. Plus, 010 has Fly High on it which is keyboard-joy-overload.
That real wrong shit.
