PSYKUP
WE LOVE YOU ALL
SEASON OF MIST

Psykup gets praise right off the bat for having the good fortune of naming their album WE LOVE YOU ALL, a classic phrase in conversations between audience and stage (just ask Ozzy). You can call this seasoned French crew avant garde and get away with it, as this six-track guide to schizophrenic solipsism bears a nasty pair of technical death metal fangs while whirlwinds of time signature changes and absurdist vocals round out the chaos. Damned if you don't hear things reminiscent of System of a Down, Faith No More, or anything from Devin Townsend within the 10-minute "Here Comes the Waves", but don't fret; this exhausting metal exercise makes up for its smuggling through anxiously alluring and cleverly constructed compositions spanning the extreme metal landscape.
