And Their Genre Will Be?

February 16th, 2012

Thanks to TMTYTF and FuriousGrace we know that our band will be called Victor Rossi & His Big Fat Posse, but now thanks to ChildofAlma we also know what kind of music they’ll be playing!

So what’s the genre?  Shock-and-Awe Sensory Assault Blackened Deathgrind

What is that you’re saying?  Well, here’s how ChildofAlma describes it:

This genre focuses on using high levels of production to deliver traumatizing, punishing heavy metal. The music is a mixture of black metal, incorporating shrieks, tremolo-picked riffs, and eerie ambience with the subgenre of death metal called Deathgrind; aspects of which are blast beats, slam riffing, and gutturally growled, unintelligible vocals.

Both of these genres are usually purposefully poorly produced. However, in Shock-and-awe sensory assault blackened deathgrind, studio production is embraced to amplify the fury. Songs are mixed as loud as possible, with the vocals, snare drum, and bass drums at the front of the mix, and the guitars two solid walls of noise that hold it all in. The bass guitar is more felt than heard, resonating through the mix, and disturbing ambience is layered throughout, barely audible.

Well, I think that about covers it.  So Victor Rossi & His Big Fat Posse are a Shock-and-Awe Sensory Assault Blackened Deathgrind band.

Thanks for all of your hard work on creating a genre for the band ChildofAlma! Now let’s turn things over to thehoseman to come up with a tagline.  Hopefully he’ll have us something back by no later than the end of the month!

    What a genre! The name of a band sounds like the name of a hip-hop group, but clearly the message of the band is “don’t judge a book by its cover.” I’m SO excited to be a part of this!

    Well, well, well what have we here? A curve ball.
    I could toss off a bunch of quick decisive tag lines right now, but I feel this might take a day or two to do it justice.

    I’m mulling over some ideas in my head for when it’s formerwageslave and I’s turn at bat. I’m interested to see what ideas he has, but I’m just interested to see how this whole thing plays out, in general.

    I’ve been spending my free time hanging out at the concert rehearsals for the Long Pigs’ upcoming Badlands tour, so my head’s in a pretty weird place, man. This should be interesting.
