Arcadea - Arcadea album review

The best Prog you can get this month

Cover art for Arcadea - Arcadea album

Mastodon get a chiptunes makeover as drummer Brann Dailor joins Zruda’s Core Atoms and Withered’s Raheem Amlani, fashioning an Atari-fuelled soundtrack to an intergalactic adventure. Dailor’s vocal and signature six-stroke rolls conjure trad ’Don on Gas Giant, with some gravitas from a John Carpenter-esque Through The Eye Of Pisces amid a galaxy of Zappa/Primus/Devin fun.
