the Locust - s/t cd (GSL)

If you ever get past the fact that it's a 3" CD and there are 20 songs and the cd is 18 minutes long, then you'll be surprised to hear the Locust. I'm a late comer to the phenomenon known as the Locust. They seem to have a large following and deservedly so. The songs are always brief but they go through many twists and turns before ending. Mainly it's fast, crazy, and screamy. But unlike other bands they incorporate keyboards very effectively. So it's a cross between Shortwave Channel and grind/screamo. Live I bet this band is amazing. The cd is really good but takes a long time to get used to. Very creative but not something I'd listen to on a regular basis.
