Battles, Mirrored (Warp)

Who: Respected math-rock super-group add vocals to their chop-heavy mix of industrialized guitar histrionics.

What: A man-machine hybrid of Krautrock precision powered by the muscle of hardcore with robot vocals and a degree in computer programming. Amazing, and a little bit scary.

Made for: The younger siblings of Tool fans looking for their own heroes; rock stalwarts hungry for bands that can really play; sci-fi freaks who wish Daft Punk played guitars.
