Frantic Bleep
The Sense Apparatus (The End Records)

By: Mike SOS

Frantic Bleep's nine-track release is a progressively Gothic metal joyride emblazoned with the dramatic twists and turns of any good mystery novel. Switching gears on a dime from Meshuggah-esque pounding to Amorphis-like dreamstates, tracks like "Curtainraiser" contain more interludes than most bands include on an entire album, yet Frantic Bleep's penchant for excess always seems fresh and exciting, but most of all, unpredictable. When you think this Norwegian trio is going to follow a pattern, it instantly morphs into something dazzlingly creative, a motif that makes The Sense Apparatus an album to dually freak out and cool down to.
