Ovum – Joy to the World Review

ovumAnother Japanese math-rock band their way to my ears. This time it is a band called Ovum. Using the basic band instrumentation, this four song EP contains some of the longest math-rock songs I’ve ever listened to.

But like other bands of the genre who create longer songs, Ovum create some great stories with the longer tracks. It’s through these tracks that the band shows their prowess and abilities. Since they don’t rely on other means to create sound other than their respective instruments, Joy to the World is a showcase of what a band can produce without the necessity of lyrics.

Even with four tracks, this is a must listen for the genre.
