The Autokinoton (Greek for ‘self-motivating') hails from Denver, CO and is ‘the’ band to watch out for this next year. The dual guitar assault and rapid-fire bass builds a carefully chaotic harmony beneath the throat tearing gasps of vocalist Joe Triscari. Since comparison is skepticism's bedfellow, imagine Converge and Neurosis locked in a Muay Thai glass-fisted death match while all of heaven's angels weep and the fires of hell boil the sea. Imagine a handheld nuclear bomb encased in a glass bubble; you get to push the button and it detonates with the sound and fury inherent in its atomic make up, as it does nothing to you but inspire long-winded metaphors about bands you think everyone should listen to or at least experience.
