Sometimes you check out a trailer for a new band and instantly know that you've got to hear more. That's exactly the case with Bionatops, featuring guitarist, bassist, and vocalist Joseph Spiller (ex-System Divide, Caricature, The Binary Code, Too Late The Hero), as well as drummer Jeff Willet (ex-Black Crown Initiate).
According to the press release, you can expect something along the lines of The Dillinger Escape Plan with all the weirdness of Mike Patton. The trailer totally gives off that vibe, though I'm definitely hearing a lot Primus in there.
While brutal and jagged elements of metal acts like Revocation, Psyopus, and The Dillinger Escape Plan flow heavily in the band’s deep grooves, an undeniable influence of Primus as well as Tomahawk, Mr. Bungle, Faith No More, and all things Mike Patton can be heard in every movement of Voices.
Bionatops will release Voices on September 22 via Nefarious Industries, which was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Spiller. You can follow the band on Facebook here, and expect some new music very soon!
