isn't the dude from At The Drive In-- in this band?  invalid litter dept. (i think it's called??) is probably one of the best videos i have ever seen....

the little i have heard from mars volta...i like.  need to hear more, what a good album to get?

just snagged televators...good stuff, might be my bowl speaking tho.  (i can hear the floyd reference...but yeah, more leaning towards early floyd.)

Not at all

the first 2 tracks I talked about (which are linked as one song) give off the same kind of energy as Led Zeppelin - Achilles' Last Stand if that helps any.

Well generally, Volta is usually under the genre of Punk Rock, or just Rock if you want to go bigger.

But if you want to get real specific I made up my own name I call for this type of genre.

I call it Punk Experience Rock.

Because I consider this type of music, similiar to Pink Floyd, a drug induced type of experience music, with all 5 speakers blasting in surround sound.

Volta dosen't even like to genre themselves, in fact they say their next album may change sounds...

But thats just my own definition. Just opinion

I like At the Drive-In better. Brent D. of Pitchfork put it best: The Mars Volta is like a non-cheesy Dream Theater. Too much excess.

Brent D hardly ever says anything worthwhile.  And I fail to see how TMV relates to Dream Theater

Mars Volta was supposed to open up for Snoop & The Chili Peppers when here in Atlanta last summer. I think one of the guys had just died and they had to cancel so it was just Snoop and RHCP.

I checked into them a bit when I saw them on the bill and the reviews sounded great......kind of like my stuff. I couldn't find crap on bearshare.
