Rolo Tomassi biography
ROLO TOMASSI are very hard to pigeonhole, and are a band from Sheffield, England, who almost destroy the word genre completely, with their blend of punk, metal, jazz, art rock and to some extent classical music. They are named after the fictional character in the film LA Confidential.

Musically, they can be losely compared to the likes of Unexpect and Iwrestledabearonce, however they have their own punkier edge to the music and include a lot more jazz and ambient elements than the latter comparison. They are a truly magnificent band for anyone into the heavier, crazier side to avant-prog.

Their album Hysterics was released on the 22nd September 2008 with Hassle records, and features 10 short tracks (including the song I Love Turbulence which was made into a video prior to the album's release date) and a lengthy 14-minute epic called Fantasia. An album definitely worth checking out.

They also were given a spot at Dowload festival in England in 2008, alongside Between The Buried And Me and The Dillinger Escape Plan.

They are currently recording a second album as it stands.

Review by Starhammer
Prog Reviewer

2 stars "Well, she's married to the Cookie Monster..."

The second studio album from the synth-driven 'cybergrind' band which take their name from LA Confidential's mysterious personage.

The Good: Kasia and Cosmology

The Bad: This Sheffield based outfit first caught my attention at Download Festival 2010. If I hadn't seen them live I would never have guessed in a million years that the unholy growls found on this album come from a member of the fairer sex, Eva Spence! This novelty aside, much of the music itself is chaotic and messy, and at times a little boring. The albums highlight's comes during the longer, more melodic compositions, as their 'crazier' counterparts are relatively tame. This band definitely has potential but at this stage their music has not reach the creative peak of other similar bands.

The Verdict: One for the future.

Review by mhyriaflib

4 stars Rolo Tomassi's debut album is very impressive indeed. The creation of such a complex, diverse album at such a young age is something that continues to astound me. This will be a band to follow in the years to come.

While the main chug of the music is very brutal and hectic, it is balanced perfectly with more dreamy soundscapes. Overall, the heavier side of the music is dominated by delicious female grunting/screaming and crazy abstract shredding by the guitarist. The more athmospheric side is usually taken care of by the keyboard player. The whole album feel is definately very experimental.

Songs of special mention for me are: Oh, Hello Ghost, I Love Turbulence, Macabre Charade and Fantasia.
