Octahedron Q&A. The Mars Volta - Octahedron review: Wait, wasn't this supposed to be an acoustic album Why are there drums and stuff And why is it so good. The Mars Volta and their fans by proxy have prided themselves on being ridiculously spazzy, taking progressive music to places that while perhaps not new, that have not been fully explored. Who can forget the progression Drunkship of Lanturns goes through, or the freak out after the chorus of Day of the Baphomets . The Mars Volta was an American progressive rock band from El Paso, Texas, formed in 2001. The band's final live lineup consisted of Omar Rodríguez-López guitar, producer, direction, Cedric Bixler-Zavala vocals, lyrics, Juan Alderete bass, Marcel Rodríguez-López keyboards, percussion, and Deantoni Parks drums. The band formed following the break-up of Rodríguez-López and Bixler-Zavala's previous band, At the Drive-In. They were known for their energetic live shows and their concept albums. I am dismayed that no FM radio stations play this kind of music anymore, but it's out there for those who look. I would rate Octahedron as the best album yet by one of the most musically talented group of men to plug in guitars. I would love to see them live. These guys are as difficult to copy as FZ, as rocking as the best Rush, and as technically perfect as King Crimson all while being entirely original and true to themselves as they could be. Previous Mars Volta album The Bedlam In Goliath started as if the band were looking at their last day on Earth, and continued as a frenzied hour of guitar-led intensity. Octahedron goes to the other extreme, beginning with an almost inaudible quiet. At least a minute passes before any sound can be properly
