grind?,noise?


this band does well in not being easily classified.


thier earlier splits and the first album is most definately grindcore in terms of drumming, no doubt. the recent stuff is where they are going for more technical range and use the blasts sparringly. this is what makes them most interesting in my eyes.

noise has become a whole seperate genre moving away from actually using musical instruments. most stuff involving common instruments that seem like random noise is more understood as avant-garde<i dont even know what this means in french, i avoid saying it in person,the term itself reeks "pretentious asshole", but since it an old term to describe a similiar form of jazz music, itll suffice> the locust do have a keyboardist who utilizes moogs and synth/oscillator sounds so there is definately a noise aspect to thier sound. look at my roomates animation video i cited, those parts inbetween songs are not sequenced sounds, its not a sample.

the vocals is where they kinda have been given the emo-hardcore accusation, i dont think a cookie monster vocalist would be any better. lets all face it once and for all; all vocal styles for the majority of music we like are totally rediculous, whether you prefer a high pitch scream of indecipherable lyrics or a grunt of even more nonsense-trying-to-pass-itself-as-vocalizations-of-words isnt really saying much.

One thing i do like about the locust is some of those weird bass effects. They are shown most in the live at hellfest video playing teenage mustache.

I wasn't even going to call them grind. Noise/Grind, thats what I'm settling with, and I don't particularly care what other bullshit subgenre everyone would rather throw them in.

Call it Grind/Noise and I'll accept it.

By the way, avant-garde = "ahead of it's time."

'Noise' is, historically speaking, not this or even especially like this, so it's fair to put it second.

The 'avant-garde' is a group of people who explore new territory. It's French for 'vanguard,' and we even use 'vanguard' in the same way when describing a group of artists or an artistic movement who break new ground, ostensibly for others to follow. It has a lot of connotations of elitism for what reasons that should be obvious. It's also one of the more useless descriptive terms imaginable, as it applies equally well to something like this and various serial compositions, to Pollock and Stella, to Greenaway and Brakhage, to Beckett and Nabokov, etc. But it has its purpose.

thats what i meant originally but me being "me" i neglected to put it after "The Locust = noise" comment. I usually put them in "spaz" over grind, but i'm not in the mood for any more genre-conflict.

Exactly, that's the only way I'll accept it.

And you are 100% correct on the avant-garde thingy.

I like them but their stage presence is horrible. Those costumes... It's enough to make a newborn baby slide right back into their mothers womb. They have sweet songs titles too like 'Wet Dream War Machine.' LOL
