Riff: Tera Melos – “Slimed”

Jun 14, 2013

Something about my face/Always makes me sick/Try to comb my hair, but the slime is thick

from Slimed lyrics by Tera Melos

Patagonian Rats gave genre-hating, self-satisfied reviewers a ride on the math-rock-appreciation bandwagon, even though fans were disappointed. Still, the first leak off X’ed Out satisfyingly boasts King Crimsony riffage with “slimey, smelly” undertones as Reinhart searches for his “wave.”
