The Apparatus Tech Album of the Week: COPROFAGO's Genesis

Every week the editors of The Apparatus webzine will present a new tech album that you should do yourself a favor and grab to have your mind completely blown…

This Week's Pick:
coprofago genesis

The best technical metal band to come out of Chile is COPROFAGO, by far. Genesis, their first truly great record, is packed full of off-timed, polymetric chugs while effortlessly blending in clear, serene jazz fusion as well. Comparisons to MESHUGGAH are warranted, but think of it like this: COPROFAGO picks up in 2001 where MESHUGGAH left off in 1995. Except, COPROFAGO's tone is quite a bit heavier and filthy-sounding, and they seem to relish playing the jazzy parts. I believe this band could easily go straight-up fusion and still be as melodic, tight, and successful as they are on this album. However, if they were to do that, we would miss tracks like "Chaos" and "Empty Creature". Live recordings of COPROFAGO are rare and sought-after. Luckily, fans have uploaded promo videos featuring studio tracks over rehearsal footage and assorted live material, so it's better than nothing and quite welcome.
