MICK BARR’S COILED MALESCENCE WILL MAKE YOUR HEAD SPIN
Mick Barr is probably best known to MetalSucks readers as one of the sick sick sick guitar players for Krallice, but he’s also involved in a ton of other projects, including his own solo work, which often attracts a very, very classy crowd (apparently Bjork is a huge fan).
Now he has recorded Coiled Malescence, his first solo album released under his own name (as opposed to the monikers Octis or Ocrilim, which he has utilized in the past). And while the record won’t be out until next month, our friends at The Deciblog are streaming it right now. In case above album art somehow failed to tip you off, it is trippy, trippy stuff; anyone looking for some kind of Steve Vai pop-metal guitar gawd album is going to feel let down. But if you’re looking for a dude just making incredibly crazy shit on his guitar, well, you are going to fucking love this album. I know I do.
Check out Coiled Malescence here. It comes out September 13 on Safety Meeting Records (vinyl) and Savage Land (CD).
