5.0 out of 5 stars butterflies. 24 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD

convention is defied again, not only because labelling this sort of music comes with great difficulties but mainly because these young whipper-snappers aren't old enough to have heard half the music they're molding, reshaping and/or bastardising. The argument could be that it's all been done before or that the elemental basic structure is a cliche: underground bands have been cobbling together this sort of intelligent hardcore with a off-kilter jazz edge for ages, but this to come from ones so young is... well.. unprecedented.
It's just all so damn efficient and clean, but simulteneously grubby with a knowing dirty look - it's teen angst in an aged hindsight.

Who can this be compared to?
Dillinger Escape Plan's Calculating Infinity, slowed down a notch and given more chance to exercise their jazzy demons.

Volta Do Mar..
Maybe a slice of Botch?

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good... 31 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
They've not been around too long, but it would seem that Rolo Tomassi have made one hell of a start to their musical career. Their downright fierce live shows aside, the bands first EP was a sign of things to come, brutal crunching guitar noise combined with handy synth effects to create a beautiful wall of sheer noise.

Album highlight 'Abraxas' is one example of their extreme musical style. Daniel P. Carter from Radio 1's Rock Show said that this song was "lots of notes played very, very fast" and that really is the only way to accurately describe it and do it justice. It is two and a half minutes straight of head busting guitar riffs, fancy meandering interchanges, demonic howling from the petit Eva Spence and Dillinger-esque jazzy segments. The drumming is also spot on, despite being just as crazy themselves, they help to bring some order to the proceedings.

When Rolo Tomassi get it right, make no misake, they are absolutely incredible. The sheer complexity and delivery of their material makes them worthy of any of the early hype and buzz they have received. 'Abraxas', for me, is up there with anything by Dillinger, Genghis Tron or Protest the Hero. Similar album highlights 'I Love Turbulence', 'Scabs' and 'Oh Hello Ghost' share this condensed musical style, and are equally great tracks in their own right.

Youth is Rolo Tomassi's greatest asset. At this point in their career, the young Sheffield five-piece are potential personified. However, it could be argued that, on this album at least, their inexperience is their biggest flaw. 'An apology to the universe' is a minutes worth of rising synth not a million miles away from one you might find on an Enter Shikari record.
