    [ The Postman Syndrome ]


    "Terraforming"(Now or Never Records)

    I really don't know what to make of this. I can honestly say I've never heard anything like it before. Picture, if you will, Candiria spread atop a Tool and newer Cave In sandwich. Eat this sandwich,and force yourself to vomit. The resulting puddle of bile is The Postman Syndrome. It's pretty straightforward,yet all over the place at the same time. Very quiet,acoustic passages dominate the bulk of this disc,and suddenly,a Tool-esque emotional landscape gives way to a Candiria flavored mosh romp. This band definitely tops the uniqueness scale. When my brain figures out what my ears just heard,it's probably going to tell me to give this record a good review.
