“Nocturnal Guest”
Switchblade Rosie sound like it could be an AC/DC cover band or a sleaze band from LA circa 1986. And I wouldn’t mind if it was either of the two. But the truth is something completely different. When I see jazz mentioned in connection with metal I get a sense that it could end up an even stranger Dillinger Escape Plan. I did not have to fear that with Switchblade Rosie. This is nowhere near as strange to decipher as I feared. It is in fact quite easy to understand. There is a progressive metal side to this that makes it enjoyable and frankly really good. Don’t know if it will appeal to Tool fans but I can see fans of Opeth going for this too. Or if your ears are tired from listening to Meshuggah all day long. Then you can rest them listening to this.
