Bio.. OUR AMAZING BAND PHOTOS WERE TAKEN BY CHRISTINE EDWARDS: www.cephotography.com.. ..FROM JOYFUL NOISE RECORDINGS: .. .."Hailing from the Midwest, LAFCADIO is like an onslaught out of nowhere. Historically, we see that the most violent and revolutionary groups come out of the shittiest geographical regions. From Genghis Khans golden horde sweeping down from the barren plains, to the Israelite Host marching up out of the desert, it's obvious that the most fucked-up people come from the most fucked-up places... ..So: LAFCADIO's lead-singer was born with Tourettes Syndrome. The reason we bring this up in the band bio? I think its an important clue to the bands philosophy and their sound. It seems to be poetically apropos to LAFCADIO's jaunty aesthetic. An analogy might be sketched between the convulsions of savagery and delirium which punctuate the otherwise elegantly constructed progressions of LAFCADIO's songs and the disruptive jangling and cognitive interference which is woven into the singers neuro-chemical make-up... ..LAFCADIO is a band growing out of metals deep-rooted traditions of darkness, noise, and riffage, but theyre always somewhere on the outer edge of ritual and convention; pointing towards new territories beyond the periphery, and penetrating the internal anarchy that's fuelled the metal movement since its moment of genesis. They deliver their songs with a brutal elegance, but they dont shy away from manic absurdity and the clownish aspect of doom.".. ........You have been marked on my profile map!

"Fans of everything from Deadguy to Jesus Lizard could find something here to dig into. Lafcadio are an original and odd metal band that couldnt have released this album at a better time. If you are sick of all of the sound-alike bands around right now, give this a try." .. -UnboundZine.com .. .. "I don't generally tell people not to listen to things. But let's be honest - if you are all about the simple pop song, or don't understand why free jazz is so cool, then you just are not going to get this album at all. But if you enjoy heavy music that really makes the listener become involved with the musical experience, then you are going to love this CD. Lafcadio has once again managed to cross several boundaries on one compact disk, and I look forward to seeing them do these songs in a live environment... -Tommy Miller .. .. "In a nutshell, Lafcadio could be described as King Crimson meets Dillinger Escape Plan meets Black Flag meets Black Sabbath meets Shel Silverstein. If you're not immediately turned off by the threat of that, then their new album Kibosh is probably for you.".. -Bob Vinyl at RNR Nonsense .... "...if I had never heard The Dillinger Escape Plan's Calculating Infinity then I would probably love the album. Usually I can get past influences, but when a band goes past being influenced and borders on plagiarism, well, you know they are out of hand.".. -Jackson Glass for Delusions of Adequacy .... "Kibosh has all the bite you'd expect from a pack of wild hyenas without all that noisy barking and howling. They've also taken the high road and stayed away from the Southern rock tend. It's heavy, stiff and structured math metal with just the right amount of melody and brute force.".. -Evil Needles/Prick Magazine .... "Sure, it's all over fairly quickly, but there's enough frenzied activity crammed into Kibosh to have you hitting play again the instant it comes to a stop. Highly recommended." ..-Jack Chuter @ SonicFrontiers.net .. ......
