Form of Rocket - Se Puede Despedir A Todos
Form of Rocket is a band that I somehow came across by accident, and since discovering this record I really haven't been able to learn much more about them. Apparently they're from Salt Lake City, Utah and have had tons of band members join and quit since their inception six years ago or so. The problem with this is inconsistency between records. I've heard their latest, and it certainly didn't leave an impression on me. With Se Puede Despedir A Todos though, everything seemed to align perfectly for these guys. They crafted a perfect blend of metal and math rock to create a sound that can best be described as Don Cabellero on steroids. I also love the way they mixed the vocals on this album. They're sort of shoved to the back of the mix so it sounds like the whole band is just rocking the fuck out and yelling their heads off without using any vocal mics. I've had this CD for two years now, and not once has it left my car.
