Starting off, The Mars Volta is one of my all-time favorite bands. Their pure energy and musical creativity radiates from their songs. Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez are some of my favorite musicians. This was The Mars Volta's debut album, but listening to it, you wonder how a band could sound so developed on their first studio album. Getting nearly perfect reviews from different critics, it was impressive to me, and many others accordingly. This C.D. follows a story of Cerpin Taxt. You can actually read the story it follows at this link (I will also put up a mirror for it later). In De-Loused in the Comatorium, you will learn how complex Cedric's lyrics are, but also his amazing vocal tone and range. A fun fact is that Cedric is very well known for his dancing on stage and anti-mosh speeches.

Suggested Songs: Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of), Drunkship of Lanterns, and Take the Veil Ceprin Taxt.
