The name Frantic Bleep seems a bit misleading for this odd band, as they
are neither frantic nor electronica-based as the term "bleep" might
Instead, 2005's The Sense Appparatus
is kind of dark progressive metal,
mixing a shade of recent
a healthy dose of
(a natural, as there is shared membership),
with several non-metallic elements to forge a pretty unique sound.
The songs are moody, dark, usually slow-to-midpaced, with Pål Bjørke's
gentle, clean vocals a perfect fit.
This was one of
prototypical signings of the time, when they monopolized the eclectic
oddball metal world.
The band never recorded again though there was never any official
breakup announcement, the project may still be alive in some sense.
