LOOK WHAT I DID
MINUTEMAN FOR THE MOMENT
Weird and wild Californians by way of Nashville, Look What I Did’s eclectic 12-track major label debut is bound to make some waves and turn some heads. Equipped with the same twisted perceptions and fearless devices of groundbreaking musical forces like Mr. Bungle, Primus, Strapping Young Lad, and Every Time I Die, this outfit’s spastic presentations and throwing the rulebook out the window approach to its music provides a jarring yet enlightening listen. Versatile enough to shift from gut wrenching screamo to STP-esque melodic passages without any warning or buildup, songs like “Lightning Bugs” and “Ultimate Complete Home Fitness Machine” are all over the map in attitude, emotional output, and musical genre bending. Ambitious yet sturdy enough to stand up to its schizophrenic styles, MINUTEMEN FOR THE MOMENT encapsulates everything that’s interesting in today’s metal realm while radiating a unique energy that merges the bestial beauty of heavy music.
