Circadian Rhythm

by Bolt

"In other words, they don't come across as your average geeked-out math band, because somehow they make all the noodling seem cool. There's plenty of rock to back up the prog, and that makes all the difference." ::::::: Mish Mash Music Reviews

Album Notes
Throughout the sticky and sweltering summer of 2001, Bolt began crafting its unique brand of instrumental rock with the self release of a four song EP entitled, “ 7Kr01.” Recorded after only two months as a group, the band pressed 150 copies and used them as promotional discs to snag regional gigs.

As interest in their break neck yet precise compositions grew, Bolt recorded its first full length effort, “Circadian Rhythm,” a raw and energetic work with tinges of video game music peeking out from behind the relentless and raucous riffage. Bolt independently released the record in March of 2003 whereupon the band continued to play but consciously initiated somewhat of a musical shift.

Captivating and unique, Bolt’s noticeably darker sophomore release, Movement and Detail, has a personality that is indeed hard to pin down. There’s a self-effacing thread that runs throughout the entire album, just beneath the cool technical precision. The band shifts from eerie atmospherics to hints of jazz but also sashays from metal riffage to downright dance-able texturing that forces you to do the tango, again, and again.

Pretty Good
Nice freshman attempt -- trio has chops! Would love to hear this remixed with the bass punched up, though, like in Movement and Detail (Bolt's second album), which I liked better. Both remind me of the first Brand X album, one of my all- time favorites, but with a more modern sensibility. Recommended to those who don't require vocals or yet another emo / pop-punk sound to enjoy good music. And yes, they can rock out!

Good. Very good.
This is good music. Great musicianship and composition. And they definitely don't forget to rock, which is ever so nice.
