The Killer Dolphin With Rabies

This is almost worth sharing for the name alone. Shame their success can only be measured as hometown legends in Wisconsin. The now defunct Killer Dolphin With Rabies are the schizophrenic side of metal, the experimental kind pioneered by The Dillinger Escape Plan. With more signature changes than a serial fraudster, and more style clashes than a world buffet on a plate, in one song, their sole album Be Human, is a no-holds-barred, unpredictable cage fight where a tank of the entire animal kingdom is emptied, and you choose to cuddle or kill them. But far from being an incoherent mess of guitar and rage, the addition of dual vocalists, makes the split personality, sanity/insanity idea work better than Dillinger’s straight up batshit singular vocalist. Post Inebriated Stress Disorder nearly does what it says on the tin, especially with the odd touch of flamenco here and there, but it plays off as an exhilarating thrill ride, instead of a cathartic exercise in caving skulls inwards.
