Expectorated Sequence Hair Bomb

Expectorated Sequence Hair Bomb
It’s no secret that the French-speaking part of the Great White North has long harboured some of the very best metal bands in existence. In recent years, its more aggressive hardcore noise scene has also started to make substantial waves, and while time will only tell if there’s a Voivod or Cryptopsy to emerge in that genre, they are off to a strong start. While the bio drops way too many Daughters comparisons for their own good, the Expectorated Sequence strike upon a violent, noisy, frantic combination of Orchid-like spastic expulsions and vaguely anthemic moments, Buried Inside’s noisy dirge (or, you know, Neurosis’s) and explorations, moments of pure, unrelenting Locust cacophony and abrasion, some Patton-esque/Fantômas-style screaming and noise, and, yes, in maybe a song or two, the Daughters — maybe. What sets them apart (even though they still need to distil into that "signature” sound) is the way they throw sludgy-doom cycling and build into the frantic attack, and the way they also incorporate vaguely catchy, scream-y bits that kids with cool angular haircuts can dig. While still finding who they are and their sound (the joke-y title and artwork reveals this), the Expectorated Sequence are another young band who have the potential to rise above the Locust and Daughters references.
