Hysterics was an excellent math-metal/prog/electronic/punk/jazz hybrid..

Everyone, including myself, sounds utterly pretentious by trying to avoid pigeon-holing and shoving every genre into a sandwich like that, but while many bands just meld two genres (jazz and metal, punk and electronica) but also stick firmly to one sort of style with bits of another for dressing/contrast, RT really do blend it all quite well.

Cosmology takes off from Hysterics and while I can't believe this is fully applicable, they slow it down a bit. Slow it down is not quite right as there are a few stupendously fast cuts, riffs and stop/starts.. but this album seems more considerate and some might even suggest that they've 'grown up'.
Being Grown Up in musical terms means that you've stopped the childlike battering ram approach and polished yourself: it suggests you're musical taste has expanded and therefore you've added that taste to your own.

In Rolo Tomassi's case they were already a band who sounded like they had a wide pallet of colours and shades, with many frames of reference. In Cosmology they refine their style, separate their influences a little bit in places and meld it a bit more in others.
Many magazine reviews for this album say that they lead the pack of this 'genre' but I think while for now they're amongst a pack of an umbrella genre, eventually they'll lead a different pack of bands aping this high-skill genre blending musicianship and style.

...The undescribable! Having seen Rolo Tomassi last year I was unsure how to react to them, as were others in the crowd. What did come accross though was that this band are not simply a straightforward screamo or mathcore band etc...The album 'feels' quite open and all the elements have time to breathe, there is the usual electronic element to the music, frantic drums, screaches and sweet tones and additional male vocals in the mix...Similarities could be drawn to Dillinger, United Nations, even The Dear Hunter in places! But this is definately Rolo Tomassi and the way everything fits together is great.

I think the band have finally found a way to sew the elements together without it sounding too disjointed.

Enjoy!

I stumbled upon Rolo Tomassi by accident, and on the back of having heard 'Party Wounds' I bought tickets to their gig in Leeds last May. Go and see them live if you haven't already. Since then I've seen them at Tramlines and also last weekend in The Corp, Sheffield.

Anyway, this is a superb album from beginning to end, a massive move forward from the brilliantly eclectic and crazy 'Hysterics'.

Please buy this album you will love it, if massive guitars, shredded vocals, huge drums and a dollop of synths is your bag!!

New album out soon too....

There is no better band in the UK at the moment.
