Chamber rock prowess with heavy crimson-cow-esque drama and power, a complex journey through 11 songs from a band that's as technically impressive and they are studio savvy.

Red Masque, The
Fossil Eyes

Red Masque, The: Fossil Eyes (Ad Hoc Records)
Label: Ad Hoc Records    
Released in: USA    

Marrying chamber rock prowess with heavy crimson-cow-esque drama and power, The Red Masque create a complex journey through 11 songs. The band is technically impressive and studio savvy, as it shows through the use of effects, sudden but sensical transitions, and just plain interesting and well crafted songs. Lynnette Shelley's vocals are authoritative, though make take a bit to get used to: she's powerful and articulate, with an accent that would work well for both Lydia Lunch and on a Zappa doo-wop. Red Masque is, no doubt, thick, heavy rock, in a similar vein to Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, but without that band's uniquely twisted sense of humor. This is serious stuff, with a resolute focus on the music itself. And that makes for a release that rewards and reveals itself more with each listen.
