Pryapisme: Can You Handle It?

Pryapisme - Hyperblast Super Collider

Pryapisme are a weird and unique band. The avant garde/electronic/I-don’t-fucking-know act sound like a forced marriage at gunpoint between Mr Bungle and Mindless Self Indulgence via a chiptune processor. If you have any sense, you’ll find that to be a pretty fitting,  if slightly terrifying descriptor in concept. The band are a confusing and mysterious bunch of French gentlemen whose music is as peculiar as you would expect from the people who wrote this band biography:

Pryapisme is a band who doesn’t know how to write biography since 2000.
After studying ninja and a reconversion into the cons-expertise of technical equipment for a massive group of automotive, Pryapisme offers an avantgardist rereading of the works of Tolstoy, but with real pieces of pizza inside.

Needless to say these guys exist within a rather bizarre sphere of music. A few days ago they unleashed (an appropriate word, considering) a mind boggling new song complete with a rather disorientating compilation video. The song is entitled “Un druide est giboyeux lorsqu’il se prend pour un neutrino” and it is the first track from their new album Hyberblast Super Collider which will be released on April 1st, 2013, via Apathia Records.

The song itself is a mish-mash of styles in a rather odd way that while certainly containing the potential to distract and annoy, actually is composed rather strongly. The music is certainly a headscratcher, but their instrumental prowess is undeniable. If you don’t suffer from epilepsy (serious warning) I’d strongly recommend committing the time to watch the video accompaniment with the music, which certainly enhances the experience. The video is a phenomenal (and slightly disturbing) compilation of clips that is incredibly fast paced to suit the frantic and seemingly disorganized music. Yet, the video and song; whilst frenetic are held together by such a strong vision that it truly is a remarkable end product. I hope whoever edited together this video was rewarded handsomely!

While Pryapisme are certainly going to be divisive, I imagine that the combination of the song and video may capture your attention. Check it out.

What do you guys think? Is it all just too much? Is it actually pretty catchy? Sound off in the comments!
