Marsupium Massacre - Hydrocephalus
Experimental, Noise Marsupium Massacre an experimental electro/industrial act from Stockholm and pretty new to the scene. The band itself seems more like a theater group than an actual music band when you read the info sheet that comes with the album ' Hydrocephalus'.

I actually laughed really hard when I read the parts that the band members did, for instance "playing with axes" and "banging on oil drums". This is either a really bad joke or someone trying to be a bit too serious. Also the states that the bands offer a really visual live show and yet they have only appeared once live, from what I can tell anyway.

Let's skip to the music shall we? In my ears this is more like noise than music and it's too experimental for my taste. There are no strong melodies or bass lines to really grip you and pull you in. It's just a lot of noise and a beat combined with some strange screaming vocals.

I have to say that this is a band that focuses a lot of image and a lot less on the music and it would seem to me that they try to hard to be "evil" and call their tracks evil names like "Meatgrinder Death". Bands like Mortician and Suicide Commando can use evil track names and get away with it because it's still good and serious music. But this band doesn't have any good music sadly, just an image and probably a dream which makes them a bit childish. On a good side the production for this kind of music isn't bad at all and this is what lifts up the score.
