Behold… The Arctopus gets a ton of flak for being terrible, which I think is a bit of a travesty. To me, their music is a showcase of abstract art that really pushes boundaries of how technical and “out there” music can be. A lot of people either don’t get it or don’t like it, and that’s quite understandable, but to say they are talentless and worthless is just asinine. It isn’t just a mess of noise and random guitar and bass noodling without structure; the band can recreate the parts perfectly in sync, which isn’t something easily done on something that’s randomly played without careful consideration.
Rant over. There’s a new Behold… The Arctopus song available for streaming! It certainly sounds like BTA in that it’s quite a challenging and extremely technical song, but it might be one of their best songs yet. You can stream ‘Disintegore‘ below.
