The Antikaroshi: per/son/alien

Alternative/Progressive/Post Rock
3.5/5.0

German three piece outfit The Antikaroshi have deep roots in the native hardcore/punk scene of their country. This undercurrent infects much of their latest album per/son/alien. There's coarseness at times in the texture of the music, some harshness and punk directness in the vocals. While much of the music of per/son/alien turns on the discordance of hardcore and punk, it's washed through melodic rock and quirky electronica in complex arrangements. The result is surprisingly intriguing and often entertaining. For lack of a better definition, per/son/alien is progressive rock but settled in an alternative post rock temperament. It's a strange bird, sort of Procupine Tree, Muse, and Riverside blurred by Fugazi or At the Drive In. Even that says little as The Antikaroshi are experimental and eclectic. per/son/alien is not something that will hit my player again any time soon. But if you're up to a challenge to the conventional wisdom of your current musical tastes, you should give The Antikaroshi's per/son/alien a listen.
