Continuing the Exploration of Weird Metal Music

Imagine if Cocteau Twins had drifted into pseudo-Arabian operatic Doom Metal, with a taste for disruption inherited from Primus or The Fatima Mansions. Just the thought of Elizabeth Fraser headbanging cracks me up.
Well, that’s about how Terrestrials, Atrox’ latest album, sounds. In other words, sometimes irritating and maybe not entirely genuine, but still strange enough to be interesting. And like a lot of metal, fun for striving so much to be serious (though you could argue some bands are self-aware and actually parody themselves and the genre.)
BTW, it’s Norwegian and Amazon doesn’t have it, but you can get it on IRC.
