The Mars Volta

Profile:
Formed 2001 // Los Angeles, CA, United States
At The Drive-In splintered into Sparta and The Mars Volta. Cedric Bixler and Omar Rodriguez were the main duo behind the newly formed Mars Volta, and took the band into realms of hardcore, psychedelic rock and free jazz, rather a drastic change from ATDI's "emotional punk" sounds.
On January 23, 2013, Cedric Bixler-Zavala revealed that he was no longer a part of The Mars Volta and that the band had broken up. Cedric and Omar then created Antemasque

Wondering why their live promo "Is Anybody There?" isn't on this page. The record is listed but just doesn't show up here.

I think there is no need to have "Mars Volta", "The Mars Volta" and "The Mars Volta Group", all the releases should be under "The Mars Volta".
I can't see The Mars Volta - A Plague Upon Your Hissing Corpse 7" vinyls in the Mars Volta discography, it came out only when I type the record/song title in the search.

The Mars Volta is a creative force to be reckoned with. One of the best live bands in the past few years, and musical talent up there with the greats from the annals of history, The Mars Volta is a gift to those who love the joys of psychedelic and progressive rock. I half-jokingly refer to them as the "Gods of Music" and must say the more they release, the more i believe it.

i first got hooked, as many did, on De-Loused In The Comatorium. Ever since that album guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has produced every subsequent release and they have been less and less "over produced" and more and more "raw and visceral."

Their most recent endeavor, The Bedlam In Goliath was an epoch in my musical life, and it will join their others in superb greatness.

Fans of The Mars Volta seem divided, some only love De-Loused and hate everything released prior, some love all the later released records more than De-Loused. Now i must say De-Loused is a completely amazing record, but i must say they have really been able to grow into their own musical skin moreso in their subsequent releases and i could be nothing but pleased.

Until they release something they didn't put their hearts into (which i never see coming) i can definitely say I will forever be a fan of The Mars Volta.
