The Buzzard''s back with their sixth album: Mantis Antler, a collection of summery pop, industrial brutality, and uniquely Buzzardian weirdness. It''s a concept album in two different ways: lyrically, it chronicles the apocalyptic return of the extradimensional "goat kings" to Earth as observed by a heart-broken, suicidal alcoholic in California, and musically, each of the 24 tracks is 10 beats per minute faster than the last, starting at 70 bpm and climaxing at 300! This is a true Buzzard epic, containing the sweetest pop bliss they''ve ever created paired with constantly-increasing world-ending insanity. Get it while you still exist!
"Leading in with a lazy Dinosaur Jr. set (including lyrical timbre) Pumpkin Buzzard then leaps onto a dancefloor of hip-hop rhythms and fuzzed-out, dissonant guitar; lyrics all a rappin’ in the meanwhile. And as for using, ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ as the melody for a song...
From avant-indie-punk, to crooning emo, to Mr. Bungle wrongness, it’s a fusillade (at the end especially where one truly understands the concept of hemi-demi-semi-quavers). ...They’re pretty sonically disturbed to fashion intense death metal with a squeal and hardly any distorted guitar...
Guitar, bass, electronic drums and effects, and the tenor of the vocalist, all are recorded at a commendable fidelity and the recording is crisp and wide, balanced and captures the best of the band, which if not caught would make Mantis Antler unbearable. It is, but oddly attractive to warrant hunting down any other material." - Heathen Harvest
