||Murder, Mystery, Mayhem CD (2002) |
Volitar albums Can You imagine what Rush and science-fiction writer, Ray Bradbury would have sounded like if they had developed a concept band together? What would happen if You were to blend the power and grace of "Rush-like" music, set it to a sci-fi story, and integrate over 150 sound effects into 1 CD?
Curious? So was Volitar creator, Andrew Engstrom. He's written songs, in the style of Rush, Nine Inch Nails and Rage Against The Machine, and blended them with an original science fiction story filled with Murder, Mystery & Mayhem and... enough saucy one liners to put Arnold Schwarzenegger to shame.
It's all on the the new CD Volitar recorded - "Murder Mystery Mayhem". An amazing adventure into the future featuring 8 songs and 8 sound effects scenes that transporting you into a 22nd century night club where You'll dance to the synthetic rock group "Dreaming Out Loud" - or wake from a nightmare to find Your life terrorized by the demented dreams of a madman. You'll take a tour of a laser research laboratory in a distant solar system and feel the power and force as Your ship blasts-off from Earth.
You've probably heard some of the best rock concept albums ever made i.e... Pink Floyd's, "The Wall" - Queensriche's, "Operation Mindcrime" or "Tommy" by The Who. You may have 1 or more of these CD's in Your CD box right now. Awesome records, aren't they? But "Murder Mystery Mayhem" is a concept CD that was created in a way that's never been done before. The angle is so different that You better prepare Yourself for a big surprise, a positively shocking one.
