Lye By Mistake Fea Jur

You know those warnings they put up for epilepsy sufferers about shows with flashing lights? Something like that needs to be offered with Lye By Mistake's latest release. A jarring experience, the album is so hyperactive, intense and overwhelming one thinks they're having some sort of seizure as their ears struggle to process every nuance in the world all at once. A little less aggressive than contenders Psyopus, yet no less frantic, the band's disgusting technical ability results in jazz-influenced progressive metal that steals from the likes of Weather Report, 2112-era Rush and a weird co-pilfering of Santana's salsa-infused guitar and Satriani's endless fret board antics. From sublimely intricate, melodic passages rife with nuances to blaring rock/metal boasting searing guitar solos and all points in between, Fea Jur is a rousing musician's musician experience that shocks and angers as much as it rocks and swaggers.
