There are few bands that are as hard to categorize as The Locust, so I won’t even try. About the closest approximation I can give, is it’s like taking Ritalin before an important calculus exam and getting beaten with a sock full of quarters on the way to class. But in a good way.
At first, you might only hear dissonant noise. But like anything in this life, to truly understand it, you have to experience it, like Saturday Night at Denver’s Moonroom.
Seeing them live is a revelation. The noise becomes harmonic and the deftness and precision in which the music is played is almost overwhelming. Surgical Hardcore at its finest.
Yes, The Locust are back with a vengeance after a 5 year hiatus and they haven’t missed a beat. Be sure to catch them when they come to your town, village or unincorporated county.
