The Callous Daoboys Release Their Latest Magnum Opus
A lot can happen in a minute and twenty-six seconds. Especially if you're The Callous
As they prepare to enter the studio to begin work on their highly anticipated first full
length studio album, the local mathcore sextet – comprising lead vocalist Carson Pace,
violinist Amber Christman, guitarists Maddie Caffrey and Adam Collins, bassist Jack
Buckalew, and drummer Sam Williamson – has once again demonstrated that they are
prepared (perhaps more so than any other act in the Atlanta scene today) to defy
convention and surpass the expectations of even their most avid fans, with the release
of "The Great Multi-Stage Rocket Robbery".
The blistering single is every bit as complex as it is concise; a composition that perfectly
captures the group's fearlessly ambitious and creative spirit. Brash, abrasive, and
undeniably innovative as always, the Daoboys manage to cover an unbelievable amount
of ground in a very short amount of time on "Rocket Robbery" - winding their
way through a myriad of jarring stylistic shifts and time signature changes with lethal
precision and a strange, uncanny gracefulness.
At once both primal and sophisticated; sporadic and calculated; chaotic and brilliantly
well-ordered, "The Great Multi-Stage Rocket Robbery" is a mini-masterpiece that
expands upon the technical and experimental sound of the Daoboys' acclaimed 2017 EP
Animal Tetris, and hints at great things to come.
