Every week Whenever they feel like it, 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…
What happens when you get four musicians who are fans of Steely Dan, Weather Report, Parliament, Machinist, Spiral Architect, and Spawn of Possession get in a room to make a few songs?
Spiketrain was formed in Tallahassee, FL, in 2005. They wrote four songs, played a handful of live shows, and recorded two tracks. Playing an extremely dissonant, chaotic, frenzied grind/jazz/hardcore concoction, Spiketrain wrote about five seconds of music every two hours. That's dedication and precision to the max.
Their songs were short, full of energy, and contained an unrelenting smattering of notes. They were excited to be part of a then-burgeoning metal scene with some exciting writing and playing styles. Unfortunately, for reasons not completely clear, the band was put on indefinite hiatus. Reports have been circulating that the band has started re-recording their older two songs as well as recording their other two as well. The only release by this bright, exciting band still might be in the future. Until then, check out their MySpace page at: http://www.myspace.com/spiketrain
