Prog-Metal Outfit Cyborg Octopus to Release Genre-Warping New Album
Bay Area progressive metal quintet Cyborg Octopus have been making big waves in the underground metal community. Exhibiting influences ranging from Soreption and The Faceless to James Brown and Beethoven, Cyborg Octopus seeks to execute and implement elements of all the music they love into one cohesive package. They push themselves beyond the boundaries of what one would expect from an average “metal band”.
To preview the upcoming release of their new full-length album Learning To Breathe on May 20th, Cyborg Octopus have unleashed their new track ‘DiscoBrain!’ Each song on Learning To Breathe is completely different from the last – each explores a completely different genre. With “DiscoBrain!”, the band tastefully combines funk with metal.
In a band-issued statement, Cyborg Octopus states, “What does metal sound like when it’s fused with funk, a saxophone, a scatting vocalist, a slapping bassist and a nightmarish acid trip? You are about the experience…. The DiscoBrain!”
