It seems like a lot of people forgot about the early 2000's math rock scene that formed in Milwaukee and it's a damn shame. A whole group of people inspired by first wave post-rock, early screamo, Chicago-style math rock, and more got together and started a whole bunch of incredible bands. For my money, Murder in the Red Barn was the best of them. Brooding, dark, technical and terrifying, the group sounded like nothing else before or since. All of the bands the members started within that scene, including Guns Blazing, were also incredible. So when I heard that both of these bands hand unreleased albums, I jumped at the opportunity. The Guns Blazing material is the exact kind of ripping math rock you'd expect from those folks. Murder in the Red Barn's "Space Album" is a sci-fi concept album that birthed the Fuiguirnet group. A glimpse into what Milwaukee used to call home and it's remarkable.
