Album Review

Are you in the mood to inflict a headache upon yourself? If the answer is yes, then no problem — slap on your headphones, load up the 2007 release by the Number Twelve Looks Like You, Mongrel, hit play, and voilà!, you should soon get your wish. This is certainly one of the "busiest" rock releases you're likely to hear, as it appears that the Number Twelve Looks Like You's main goal is to cram as much musical activity as humanly possible into each composition. And the gentlemen are quite adept at their respective instruments — it's pretty intimidating to think how much practice and woodshedding they must have endured to get these complicated math formula-esque compositions sounding just right. The bandmembers have obviously studied their Mars Volta and Dillinger Escape Plan albums from front to back, as evidenced by such supersonic freakouts as "Imagine Nation Express," "El Pinata de la Muerte," and the delightfully titled "Alright, I Admit It...It Was a Whore House." Both intense and complex, there's very little room for error on Mongrel.

A spiraling surprise of:Chaos,tranquility and creativity

The number twelve has evolved over there numerous relaeases and over the years. Now after there 2005 LP debut Nuclear.Sad.Nuclear they have comed up with a uproarious new album with incredible progressive,grindcore and death metal elements added. Making this there strongest album to date and unlike anything your ears will ever grace on.From the mandolins all the way to outrageously tuned guitars you hear the amount of work put in and you get your moneys worth. If this is the first thing you have heard from this band then look no further because this is as good as it gets from them. This album has something for fans of grindXcore,death metal or anyone who loves something a bit technical. I wont tell you which songs are the best because each one has a distinct feature that makes it amazing.

Wow, This Is What Real Music Sounds Like

I can't begin to describe how amazing this band is. The level of creativity stuns me. If you like their old stuff alot you might be a bit dissapointed cuz this is way different but once you listen a few times, it grows on you. Even though this is a hardcore band, the songs all have unique qualities. the beggining of 'Jay walking backwards' almost put me to sleep, while songs like 'El pinata de la muerte' and 'Paper weight pigs' are just in your face grind. 'Grandfather' is probably the most unique, because of the jazz riffs but It dosent matter who you are, give this a try. It pushes the boundaries of grindcore while taking overall music to a whole new spectrum. you will never hear anything like this ever so BUY IT!!

Formed: 2001 in Bergen County, NJ

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Taking their name (slightly altered) from a particularly dark, dystopian 1964 episode of The Twilight Zone, the Number Twelve Looks Like You plays a particularly dark and dystopian form of screamo that incorporates elements not only of the expected metal and hardcore but also Japanese-style noise rock à la the Boredoms and the show-offy tempo, time signature, and dynamic shifts of Frank Zappa. Forming in the New York City suburbs of Bergen County, NJ, in 2001 (initially under the name And Ever),...
