A METALSUCKS EXCLUSIVE TRACK PREMIERE: EXOTIC ANIMAL PETTING ZOO’S “APIS BULL”

By MetalSucks

If the name “Exotic Animal Petting Zoo” doesn’t exactly strike you as being traditionally metal (which is to say, it’s, like, Fucking the Eye Sockets of Decapitated Heads Impaled on Spikes or whatever), well, that’s okay — Exotic Animal Petting Zoo aren’t exactly a traditional metal band. In the Mr. Bungle-esque tradition of bands that don’t conform to conventional genre rules and pretty much do whatever the fuck they want. Take, for example, “Apis Bull,” from the band’s forthcoming Tree of Tongues: the track shifts between movements that owe equal debts to Dillinger Escape Plan-inspired mathcore, the most melodious parts of expansive Between the Buried and Me-style prog, and Vangelis. No shit.

MetalSucks is proud to debut the insanity that is “Apis Bull.” Stream the song below — we think you’ll dig it.

Tree of Tongues comes out April 12 via Mediaskare.

    Oh man this is fuckking sick. So pumped to see this band still kicking ass, i thought they were goners.

  • Soloisgodly

    Can’t see where to play it? Do I need a plugin

    • Jordan

      It’s a soundcloud plugin.  Mine took about a full minute before it appeared.  Just be patient and you’ll see it appear :).

  • dicky mcdicks

    Wow, I thought these dudes had dropped off the map.  Their debut album was kick-ass and I’m glad to see that this release seems to be following suit.

    Color me excited!

    Good stuff, and I’m not even into mathcore for the most part.

    • BrayseLaygz

      most mathcore bands forget to write songs.

  • FistacularFisttitudeOfFisting

    Well done but not by favorite kind of music.

  • PMFtheman

    Whoa. This song is awesome. The groovy part right after the first section of clean vocals is so good. Thanks for another awesome recommendation. The reprieve, after the middle is super cool. Ahhh. The song ends that way. Nice I love this song. This song goes many directions and it was surprisingly unexpected and fresh sounding. 

  • Ron_Deuce

    this is awesome. glad to see this added to the list of awesome 2012 release yet to come

  • Beesh3000

    Definitely my new most anticipated album for 2012.  I have been following these guys since they started out (they are local where I live) and their first CD is still one of my favorites in my entire library.  I was mindblown the first time I heard them, I couldn’t understand how they weren’t so much more popular.  After not hearing anything about them for 4 years I thought for sure they had given up which really would have been a shame.  When they announced they had a new CD it made my week, and this song is incredible.  It’s even cooler because I love about a half hour away from them.

    I forgot this band existed.

    “In the Mr. Bungle-esque tradition of bands that don’t conform to conventional genre rules and pretty much do whatever the fuck they want.” There weren’t any verbs in that sentence that weren’t in prepositions, it kinda left me hanging.

  • kevin
