Watchtower - Control and Resistance

Back when I was starting to venture into the more esoteric branches of heavy metal, I wanted to get my hands on the wildest, craziest sounding shit possible. Luckily I happened upon the terrible Texans of Watchtower. Wild wailing vocals, jazz fusion drumming, bass way high up in the mix, and the genius/madness that is guitarist Ron Jarzombek. For example...

This is the kind of insanity that made the kids go gaga in the '80's.. At least the kids with frizzy hair, bad skin and white high tops. Truly an excellent album.

These fellas are still around and dropped a hot single earlier this year. I believe they'll have a full length coming out entitled Mathematics. Stay tooned.
