This is heavy rock/metal/punk but not as you might reasonably predict it to be. It’s quirky; heavy rock in a party hat. It’s generally not intrinsically comic, they just have a different view of rock to the rest of us, and it’s impossible not to warm to their enthusiasm.
The music is beefy and solid and the vocals muscular; in the sections where a louder band would scream, these rap. They’re like lots of other bands, but unlike them at the same time. In places we thought of Beastie Boys and in others Disturbed, but it’s neither; Disturbed for example is loud rock by numbers but whatever this is, it’s not formulaic.
