The Pitch: Ukranian eclectic mixture of alternative rock, experimental, post-hardcore, and progressive.
What I Like: This album is just delightfully weird. It's not overtly avant-garde, and yet within its vaguely alternative shell there is something gestating that is not quite of this earth. I am amazed by how many genres get touched on over the course of this album, and sometimes within single songs. It is something I have not heard before, and previously thought could only be cooked up in the mind of Mike Patton.
What I Don't Like: Not every song hits its mark, but I can somewhat forgive it given the scope that the album manages to cover.
The Verdict: Sounds Like Murder kills by confusion. Rather than leaping at you with muscles and claws, it disorients its pray before quietly slipping the venom. I think a little more thought into planning the album as a whole could have been beneficial, but these songs are in the ether.
