Album Review

For the most part, extreme metal is one of the more one-dimensional sounding genres in all of rock. Before you even hear a specific recording by an artist of the aforementioned genre, you pretty much know what's in store — growls, screams, rapid-fire riffs, etc. And while there are certain elements of Genghis Tron's music that certainly fall under the extreme metal category, the group is one of the few that appear to be incorporating sonic experiments into their white noise. Case in point, 2008's Board Up the House, which slips electronics into the density. The band should also be given an award for creating such an enormous racket with only three people in their band. Don't expect such ditties as the title track or "Things Don't Look Good" to become perennial prom favorites, but as far as trying new approaches within the realm of extreme metal, Genghis Tron definitely succeed on Board Up the House.

This Album changed My music Perception

I got into 'Genghis Tron' through reading a music review about 'The Dillinger Escape Plan.' After reading the review i was curious about the fact they said it was a drummerless band with extreme blast beats. I went onto itunes and found that the album 'Board Up The House' had just been released. I bought 'The Feast' due to the fact that it featured Dillingers singer. I was blown away by the song and automatically had to hear more. the next day i went and bought the album and i feel in love with it. Every song on the album is unique and different spreading from The eerieness of the instrumental ' The Whips blow back' to the ten minute epic 'Relief' My favourite track from the album is the title track which is a blur of amazing synth beats and leads with continous guitar sounds. This album is AMAZING.

this album is incredable

deffinatly matured musically since there other releases. Alot more progressive. and i love it


If, like me, your a big fan of metal music and it's many sub-genres, then you might have noticed that a lot of metal sounds painfully the same. If, however you crave something different then give this a try. A true piece of original, unflinching take on the experimental/death metal genre. With perfect execution to boot. A must have.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

First formed in Poughkeepsie, New York before moving to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Genghis Tron was a noise, electronic, IDM, grind, doom, ambient trio that got together in 2004. Their myriad of styles, which were made on-stage and on-record without the aid of bass or drummer, was hard to miss in the post-rock and post-metal world, and leading label Relapse eventually signed them up. Members Mookie Singerman (vocals and keyboards), Hamilton Jordan (guitars, drum programming), and Michael Sochynsky...
