Atlanta’s Callous Daoboys make a frantic, freaked-out type of math-damaged metalcore. They recall the late-’90s madness of the Dillinger Escape Plan and Botch, if both of these bands had ever messed round with pop melodies or employed a violin participant. Earlier this yr, the band launched the bugged-out stand-alone single “A Temporary Article Relating to Time Loops.” At the moment, the band publicizes that they’ll comply with up their 2019 album Die On Mars with a brand new one known as Celeb Therapist, which is popping out later this summer season.
“A Temporary Article Relating to Time Loops” is on Celeb Therapist, and so is the superbly insane new single “What Is Scrumptious? Who Swarms?” The tune lurches out and in of juddering meth-metal and generally strikes into half-ironic operatic melody and bizarre little pop digressions. In its fired-up weirdness, it most likely recollects prime Mr. Bungle greater than something. The Grant Butler-directed video has a storyline involving health, cult indoctrination, and a hammer blow to the cranium; it’s simply as frantic because the tune.
On the Callous Daoboys’ Bandcamp web page, singer and keyboardist Carson Tempo says this about Celeb Therapist:
The entire album is about historical past repeating itself and the way we sort of transfer in circles. It’s two steps ahead and three steps again with a bunch of individuals in my life. The album is me reflecting on these individuals however realizing I’m responsible of the identical on the finish of the report. There are a whole lot of ‘fuck you’ songs as a result of each heavy band likes writing these. However total, the lyrics are extra introspective and fairly loving.
