Marcellus Rex – S/T (Album Review)

Coming straight from the heart of Bordeaux, France, these psychedelic/pop giants made a killer record titled “Marcellus Rex”, so let’s check out this out.

This is the boys debut EP, and lemme tell you it’s fun to listen you, these guys are kinda in the same vein as Torche, and that’s pretty much it, they have a very unique and original sound, combining sounds such as, stoner rock, psychedelic, pop, electronic and a lot of strange noises that remind me of the 90s and I love it. It’s almost so out there it’s kinda like Faith No More or Strapping Young Lad had an influence on the album. And throughout the whole album is like this, every corner they turn or every area they go into it’s leaves you wanting more, but they still achieve to make great songs with great riffs and good dynamics underneath that heavy layer of strange noises.

Ok now for the bad stuff, which I’m absolutely terrible at. The vocals fit very well, the production is great (the bass may be a little too loud at points), the songs have a nice flow to them, this Album is just awesome, and it has pretty much every instrument thrown in it. So I suggest checking this album out and go support these guys, I believe they have a CD available to buy.
