Exotic Animal Petting Zoo combines the tenacity of Dillinger Escape Plan, Deftones and At The Drive In, if you can believe that. These dudes specialize in eclectic and melodic ultra-heavy aural madness, and their new album, Tree of Tongues, is one of the year’s best releases, by far.
Don’t believe me? That’s cool. But I guarantee you that in three months’ time, you’ll be claiming you were into the band long before their album came out. I know you — you’d do that.
Tree of Tongues was produced by Stephen Hawkes (Red Fang, Silent Civilian), and at the end of this post, you can hear a cut from the new disc (which is in stores next week).
The song is called “You Make Wonderful Pictures” and I think it crushes.
