From the ashes of the critically acclaimed el paso hardcore/emo group At The Drive-In came two bands, Sparta and The Mars Volta. Where Sparta went on to make a straight forward rock album, relying heavily on the At The Drive-In sound, The Mars Volta went off to create and different but distinctive sound. Featuring Cedric Bixler and Omar Rodriguez from ATD-I, Ikey Owens former Long Beach Dub-All Stars keyboard player, John Theodore and Eva Gardner, The Mars Volta prove that they are a band that are changing the face of music. With various influences coming to mind whilst listening to the 3 track EP, range from rock, salsa, dub, prog and jazz blended together to make something incredibly special. Cut That City opens with about 2 minutes of haunting effects and electronic noises, which breaks into the sound of haunting keys,raging drums, thumping salsa bass, crazy guitar and of course that amazing voice. Concertina is a slower track but still manages to keep that thumping rhythm going. Eunuch Provocatuer is a 8 and a half minute explosion of sampled effects and voices, manic shredding guitars and an amazing rhythm section.The song also contains a 5 minute dub section. Pitty two tracks Cicatriz and Roulette Dares recorded before this EP, weren't featured. Tremulant is progressive rock for a regrissive world.
