Reseña de álbum

When Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala silenced At the Drive-In in the midst of its popular emergence, there was no question that the two artists would return with new music as exciting as their previous band. However, there was plenty of discussion in corners and over drinks about what, exactly, that music would sound like. It was clear that much more was happening under those Afros than biting, post-hardcore anthemics laced with psychedelia. In 2002, Rodriguez-Lopez and Bixler-Zavala returned with the single "Tremulant," attributed to their new project, the Mars Volta. Its shifting soundscapes were certainly a hint, but with the Mars Volta's ambitious De-Loused in the Comatorium, it's clear the ATDI expats' mushroom-headed hairstyles hide bulging brains that pulsate with ideas, influences, and a fever-pitch desire to take music forward, even if they're occasionally led too far afield for the audience to follow. A concept album of sorts, Comatorium is a swirling ten-song cycle inspired by Julio Venegas, a childhood friend of the band who followed his fearlessness to a self-inflicted end. While the storyline is bewilderingly obtuse, it nevertheless unifies the album's wildly shifting sounds. Thrumming, Led Zeppelin-inspired pounding gives way to the thump of a free jazz bass punctuated with blasts of guitar squelch in "Drunkship of Lanterns." Meanwhile, the windswept landscape of "Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of)" unfolds over seven minutes, revealing remnants of ATDI, fissures of glittering, confessional pop, and layer upon sedimentary layer of a shrieking Bixler-Zavala, harmonizing with himself over vintage 1970s organ. All of this gives way to a gentle landslide of an outro, where an expressive guitar solo that would make Carlos Santana scratch his head threads its way between brooding bass. Later, Red Hot Chili Peppers secret weapon John Frusciante stops by for "Cicatriz ESP," which undergoes a full stop after its relatively straightforward (for these guys, anyway) beginning, reentering the atmosphere to the fiery strains of at least three concurrently soloing guitarists. Though the brief-by-comparison ATDI-ish "Inertiatic ESP" acts as an opposite to the epic "Cicatriz ESP," the band's ardent desire for re-creation is defined in the latter song's shifting folds and faults. But while De-Loused in the Comatorium may well remove the stigma from the prog and art rock forms it suggests, and is certainly a monument to unbridled creativity, it can also be seen as bombastic and indulgent — much like prog has been in the past. Comatorium is exciting, to be sure. But in a way, it avoids answering that old question about the Mars Volta: What will the music sound like?

A slice of genius from The Mars Volta

De-Loused in the Comatorium is a modern day classic by The Mars Volta (produced by Rick Rubin). A bombastic fusion of progressive rock, metal, and punk that could be an episode in "The Twilight Zone": 1. Son et lumiere - A chilling intro. Makes you wish it was a much longer song....B 2. Inertiatic ESP - Sounds like a new At the Drive-in song, with a Mars Volta twist.....A- 3. Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of) - Experience an acid trip without actually doing acid....B+ 4. Tira Me A Las Aranas - "Throw Me to the Spiders" 5. Drunkship of Lanterns - Reason # 91 to go see The Mars Volta live: at about 4 minutes into this song all the instruments die down for about 20 seconds, then drummer Jon Theodore brings us back in with galloping drums, along with bassist Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez cleaning house.....A- 6. Eria Tarka - As far as I'm concerned this is the best song on the album. It also contains the defining moment on "De-Loused", at about the 4:45 minute mark until the music stops is the highlight of the album: with singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala letting out howling screams reminiscent of Robert Plant, and the backdrop of all instruments going full bore, is enough to blow one's mind.....A+ 7. Cicatriz ESP - Just try and not sing (or yell) along with Bixler-Zavala when he screams "I've Defected" throughout this one.....A- 8. This Apparatus Must Be Unearthed - The Mars Volta definitely has the "go hard as hell for 30 seconds and then slow it down to nothing for 30 seconds" method down. Sweet helicopter riff at the end of this song.....B 9. Televators - As close as you'll get to a ballad on this album. "Pull the pins. Save your grace. Mark these words on his grave." Just a great tune....A - 10. Take The Veil Cerpin Taxt - I can't think of a better way to end a great record like this, than with this song. The ending of this song turns into almost a reggae blues song but then slowly morphs into a whirlwind of punk and metal, before the haunting conclusion with Bixler-Zavala asking "Who brought me here? Forsaken, depraved and wrought with fear. Who turned it off? The last thing I remember now. Who brought me here?"....A-

Landmark album in new wave progressive rock

Deloused in the Comatorium captures many of the characteristics of higher progressive rock bands of the early 1970s and updates the sound, texture and effect with a millennial dose of punk, modern rock and alternative.  Telling the somewhat obtuse story of a man's descent into the underworld, the lyrics are deep, obscure and mystical.  The music serves to accent the tale in a fashion that has long fallen out of mainstream favour, but which makes this more of a complete work than a collection of three minute radio friendly snippets.  While punk and progressive were the epitome of "at loggerheads" in 1978, the blending here is an unforgettable mix of lengthy ethereal explorations punctuated by heavy interjections that course the piece along.  Standout tracks are "Televators" and the crushing "Son Et Lumiere / Inertiatic ESP" which opens the album, although this is an album that cries out for full exploration, not a piecemeal purchase.  Best experienced with headphones, in the dark, with full concentration.

Greatest Band Ever

The Mars Volta hands down is the greatest band ever. This album is also their best. Most bands are all about screaming and loud and all over the place guitars and drums. This band brings skill to every aspect of music. Vocals, instruments, and collaboration. Amazing instruments that give you a perfect mix of progressive rock, salsa, and a psychadelic twist. If you know and like good music buy this album and you won't be disappointed.

De las cenizas de At The Drive In, Cedric Bixler-Zavala y Omar Rodríguez-López formaron Mars Volta, y sin perder tiempo comenzaron a incorporar elementos del hardcore, rock psicodélico y free jazz para así expandir los confines musicales de sus trabajos anteriores. Aunque la disolución de At The Drive In ocurrió antes de que pudieran realmente aprovecharse de su creciente fama, los Mars Volta causaron sensación de inmediato con su declarada intención...
