is not metal. not all the time anyway. so what is it? just a bunch of
university kids jamming, basically; but the music is of the finest calibre,
we kid you not : the most confusing fusion, mutating out of their love for
diverse musics from the usual suspects when it comes to
experimental/avantguard music to the 99 cent record bins of thrift stores on
well forgotten streets to the stuff that does its rounds on the turntables
of connoisseurs of the finest grooves.
psychedelic post- rot-rock space bop susceptible to bursts of choppy
rhythmic funk gems. at times, you will envision robots breakdancing while at
others you will feel your head being bashed by concrete slabs fashioned out
of colorful grafitti walls of noise. there is no predicting the soundscapes
Detroit Metal will take you to. and all of it is improvised.
Detroit Metal is 5 kids : Melanie Benard, Will Glass, Suhrid Manchanda,
Darren Peacock, Ed Orloff and two ku kids : Alex Moskos, Joel Taylor and
expected guests (big kids) : Magali Babin, Phillipe Lambert, �ric
Letourneau. all on guitars, keyboards, drums, pots & pans, voice, tape
loops, wind instruments� but come expecting nothing (but fun) and win
Detroit Metal a place in your heart.
