im sure they wont be reading this because they would probably have to sift thru mountains of worst condemnations from message boards and reviews on the internet even if they were so inclined to care, which i believe they most certainly dont. they are much universally hated by any press, but still bolster an impressive following despite. which i think is funny


i like them, the style of drumming is unorthodox which is something i alway look out for. an interesting drummer is rare campared to a skill one, no?

they, of course, are not without flaw. a part of what they do is bordering nonsense, bordering jarring,jumbled noise to actual music, this is quite obviously intentional from which criticism is anticipated. they are more an avant garde/experimental type of band.

heres a good quote from one of the members

"sure we love napalm death, but they already wrote Scum so we dont need to do IT again"

its a good point to be made of the current glut of clone black and death metal bands,gindcore etc. nowadays.

progression in music seems more viewed on how skilled and refined one is playing an overtly cliched and formulaic genre of music, as opposed to a different approach.

how does a band wastes one time?

"so is wearing your girlfriends bra and taking photos but i dont think thats a good idea, either"

tranny, say it aint so. i dont know whats worst, a band that dresses up in bug costumes that noone here seems to appreciate or a die hard metal "purist" who nonchalantly reveals his fancy for wearing female underwear

man the past few posts ive made ive been goofing around and they were taken seriously. im not a metal purist at all man, for example of i love devin townsend ( VAMPIIRRAAAA)

i just think this particular band sucks. i dig what you said about the drummer though, one of my favorite drummers is the guy who plays for Nasum...who are fairly unoriginal from song to song but the drumming is really intense

anyways i just meant it to be all in good fun

i meant it in jest as well


one thing about the locust is they have reached that 3-4 album point<if you count all the split releases,vinyl etc.> where thier stuff has been sounding the same and there needs to be evolution<the first album was different due to there being a different line-up>. i felt the last release was a bit weak, the whole 5 piece classical music presentation bit offered nothing new beyond the moog/electronic capabilities. thier sound definately needs more variation

they may venture into that point where they are just rewriting previous albums<a coomon accusation is they already do>. plague soundscape is pretty much the pinnacle.

repeat listening is so-so, ill listen to an album a few times thru every couple of months. thier live shows are incredible tho,the drummer doesnt trigger. last time they played here daughters opened for them and it was probably the best show id seen last year.

the current drummer of the locust<who plays guitar> and the old drummer<from the first locust album> originally formed cattle decapitation, i think the current line-up of cattle only has the singer as an original member now

alot of the scene/emo kids at my school are really into them,
i was at the drummers house and we were downloading cannibal corpse and suffocation like stuff, and his emo friend was like "you think thats heavy"
and he downloaded some locust song and........

i had to restrain myself.

And yet apparently many people do this as well.

I haven't heard this band. I don't really intend to listen to them in the future. If, however, it turns out that their music actually is the shit of this planet as consensus here seems to indicate, then at the very least it can be said of them that they are aptly named.

I actually like noise about the same as Doom and Goregrind (3 fav. genras). I was just saying I wouldn't consider Locust a noise band.
