Saying that Dimesland’s music always makes me feel like I’m in the midst of a panic attack might make it sound like a negative, but really, it isn’t. That’s because I’m not actually in one, and I feel just fine. Yet it makes my mind race and insanity take over, but usually instead of curling into the fetal position, I start whipping around and getting shit done. So it’s a positive panic attack you could say. That’s the best way I can think to describe the band’s manic, all-over-the-fucking-map debut LP “Psychogenic Atrophy.” Deciding where on the metal sub-genre scale the band falls is near impossible. Noise? Prog? Math metal? Death? Doom? Uh, try all of those, with no one element ever taking over another. It’s perplexing stuff, this great first full document (their 2012 EP “Creepmoon” only hinted as the craziness ahead), and there’s no way you’ll have the same experience with this music twice.
