"The Cuckoo Clocks Of Hell"

The Story
"We want more shred, we want more shred. we want more shred..." Well, perhaps some of the Buckethead faithful were muttering that mantra to themselves after last week's brilliantly soulful Buckethead release "Population Override". Enter "The Cuckoo Clocks Of Hell", an equally brilliant (albeit in a totally different way), all instrumental (great!) slab of shredded heaviosity, some might say, Buckethead's heaviest ever. One of the contributing factors has to be the pounding drums of Brain - this guy is a demon on the skins. Like Buckethead's "Somewhere Over The Slaughterhouse" you've got gobs of metallically heavy rhythm guitars framing bizarre and creative soundscapes, and a smorgasboard of ultra-fast riffing and mach speed soloing that will slake the thirst of the most discriminating shred head. Now there is truly Buckethead for all.
