I first saw these guys on MTV2 and they definitely grabbed my attention. It was more interesting than most things i see on Headbangers Ball so i decided to pick up the album. I was pleasently surprised. The album is non-stop pretty much from beginning to end and the music is not just aggressive but very well thought out and progressive. Definitely some jazz influence as far as song structure goes. If you like bands like Psyopus or Into the Moat than i strongly recommend you check this out.
this cd is the s&*it.
these guys are sick ! elliot hoffman (the drummer) is the best. he'll buy you a pizza !
About Car Bomb
Combining the punishing guitars and muscular rhythm of extreme metal with a twisted sense of humor and stop-on-a-dime dynamic and tempo shifts, Car Bomb are one band unafraid to take rock at its hardest into new and unexpected directions. Car Bomb came together from two bands that shared the same rehearsal space in Rockville Center, NY, Neck and Spooge. Neck's guitarist Greg Kubacki and singer Michael Dafferner were playing hardcore metal but were interested in moving into a more progressive direction (they cite Frank Zappa as a major influence), while bassist Jon Modell and drummer Elliot Hoffman of Spooge were playing a more technically ambitious brand of metal that already reflected some of the changes Kubacki and Dafferner were hoping to make. When both bands came to a parting of the ways, the four friends teamed up, and Car Bomb was born in 2002. After two years of writing material and knocking the membership into place, the group began recording material in 2004, and a song from their first demo, "Solid Grey", appeared on a 2006 compilation, The Hardcore Street CD, Vol. 2. A split single with Burnt by the Sun followed later that same year, and in late 2006 Car Bomb signed with adventurous metal label Relapse Records. Their debut album, Centralia, was released in early 2007. ~ Mark Deming
