Just got a couple new mixes from my homey in Austin called MVSCLZ (aka Ben Aqua). Well that's his latest pseudonym at least; Ben is a man of many different faces and sounds. MVSCLZ plays alot of early 80s obscure-ish new-wave/electro/dub/disco stuff, which isn't necessarily much of what we post on this blog but it's always fun to switch things up every once in a while. Plus he sports ridiculous mustaches. Keepin it free-form, ya know...

This guy also sometimes performs in a 1-man fantasy metal band called ASSACRE (yes!!), which has been described as a continuous shredding guitar solo. While Wikipedia elaborates like this:

After releasing a demo in 2004 entitled Impossibly Silent, ASSACRE began making a name for himself throughout Texas with his wild, confrontational, and unpredictable performances. He is often extravagantly costumed in concert and in photographs. The costumes, which he creates himself, result in the visual aspect of the project becoming as important as the musical.

ASSACRE ambitiously toured the USA in the summer of 2005 in support of his first full-length release, Fantastic Illusions Worth Dying For (Awthum Records, August 2005). The album features 8 tracks of fantasy, death, and thrash metal mixed with bizarre, abstract sound collages, displaying a wide array of musical influences - from Death to Klaus Nomi to Merzbow to Sun Ra.

So anyways, this post isn't primarily about Assacre but I just think the notion is so ridiculous that it demands attention. For more on Assacre, peep the myspace:
