The Mars Volta – Tremulant – Review

The Mars Volta

Tremulant (Gold Standard Labs)
by Tim Den

One of the projects featuring ex-At The Drive-In members Omar and Cedric. While loyal ATDI followers will suck up any leftovers anyway, beware: A six-headed beast, The Mars Volta use anything near them in their “experimental rock” approach… like soaking At The Drive-In’s explosive songs in every single effects pedal you can think of. The influence of Omar and Cedric’s other project, De Facto (a dub group), rears its head in the syncopated rhythms… but what does it all mean? It means this is fucking weird.
