The Mass

Profile:
Experimental/avant-garde metal band from San Francisco, CA, USA.

Oakland, CA math-punk-jazz-metal purveyors of sonic headfuckery, THE MASS, garnered critical praise throughout underground rock and metal circles with a pair of full-length CDs released by indie labels Crucial Blast and Monotreme. "City of Dis" (2003) and "Perfect Picture of Wisdom and Boldness" (2005) saw the band hone their unique hybrid of angular, jazz-inflected math-metal, prog and hardcore by fusing disparate genres into a seamless and disturbing sonic brew. Punishing, angular riffs collided through rollercoaster song structures capped by violent screams and incendiary, free-jazz saxophones. The band capped off the era with the blistering self-released 4-song ep “Holocene #6” (2007).
