Massacre

Massacre are a power trio (drum, guitar, bass) originally playing from 1980 to 1981 and reformed in 1998. During this first period they released one album, "Killing Time", that I like very much.
The album's feeling is somewhat similar to that of early Mr. Bungle and Nuclear Rabbit, although I don't think Massacre influenced them directly. Their sound is very raw and kindof funky, using quirky sounds from the guitar and the bass guitar in a fast rhythmical way. The compositions of their songs are either very strict or very loose - I'm a big fan of both - which keeps their music interesting. Their style was very ahead of their time, in a way that it was very powerful but also in the way their songs were composed. And I think they still managed to put those elements together better than most similar bands today.

  3. It's a shame when something great is brought to the world, but the world isn't ready for it yet! Nice to see they were able to reform almost 2 decades later when the world was a little bit more prepared for their art.
