Henchman__ This record was so refreshing and enjoyable. Only complaint is that there are next to no vocals. 7/10 Favorite track: The Sadist.

Ambling Falchion Frankly I was surprised by how well constructed and produced this album is, and I feel that their gimmick, though certainly not for everyone, contributed to their interesting ideas in a good way. Honestly, I can't wait to hear Brain Tentacles develop this unique sound further! Favorite track: Cosmic Warriors Girth Curse.

James Williams When I first heard "The Sadist," it took about 0.2 seconds for me to think, "Yeah, this is 197% in my wheelhouse." Imagine if Shining gave even fewer fucks about the metal scene, and you'll be approaching the gorgeous insanity in this album. (BTW, the oxblood vinyl press - sexy as fuck. Thank you for that.)

Sara Johnson This album makes me think King Crimson by way of Looney Tunes. Highly recommended, fantastic live act as well!

about

The self-titled debut album from mind-melting metallic jazz trio BRAIN TENTACLES is a journey in improvised and structured experimental sound from three venerable scene veterans. Featuring Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Bloodiest, etc) on horns, voice, electric piano and synth, Dave Witte (Discordance Axis, Municipal Waste, etc) on drums, and Aaron Dallison (Keelhaul) on bass, voice, and synth, 'Brain Tentacles' sees the threepiece weaving their way through twisted, seizure-inducing compositions that call to mind the insanity of John Zorn's storied project Naked City and Mike Patton's most erratic experiments. BRAIN TENTACLES are masters of tension: the album moves unpredictably from mathy chaos to ponderous, juddering grooves that warp time in their wake, darting from one extreme to the other via insane rhythms and truly progressive, expansive songwriting. Occasional vocals (including a guest appearance from Oxbow's Eugene Robinson) lend an even sharper edge to the album, which is sure to blow away fans of instrumental and vocal-driven music alike. Produced by Sanford Parker (Minsk, YOB, etc) and features artwork by Jef Whitehead of Leviathan!

Equal parts jazz, metal and noise, the band's improvisational & structured pieces surprise as much because of their catchiness as their aural insanity. Open your mind and let BRAIN TENTACLES work their otherworldly magic. ... more
