Dysrhythmia  


Dysrhythmia operates in the relatively exclusive realm of instrumental metal, a select genre of bands usually more interested in doing their own thing rather than following the trend of the day. And Dysrhythmia is no different, as their unique brand of arty, choppy, progressive, dischordant metal is clearly not aimed at the general public. The band formed in 1998, and released a couple of independent albums before signing on with Relapse (an interesting choice, as this band is hardly a typical Relapse band) and releasing Pretest in 2003. If a band must be named as a soundalike, one might say Don Caballero, though Dysrhythmia is a little less chaotic, a bit more metal-based, and perhaps a bit moodier during the more introspective songs such as "Touch Benediction". Pretest isn't perfect, as there is the occasional tendency to wander off and lose track of the song itself, but this is a great album, one of the best instrumental albums in some time, and if the above description is appealing, is definitely worth a look.
