Frenetic, Dissonant Death Metal: QUESTION ‘Question’ EP Stream + Review

Does the word Question strike you as a fitting moniker for a death metal band? Regardless if you think so, Mexico’s Question are releasing a cassette through vaunted cassette tape-specializing Caligari Records in the near future, and as is with most of the label’s releases, you just can’t go wrong with picking a tape from their catalog.  Question is a death metal unit with an intriguing style of brash, uptempo, frenetic, dissonant death metal the likes of which I can compare closely to that of Swedish band Degial.  The riffs and melodies are largely anti-melodic by nature and sound ill-fitting from a first listen’s perspective, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t like it.

 


It’s not as though the band can’t play after all, and that they sound out of rhythm.  Dissonant riffs and lead segments wind in and around each other like coils of serpents.  The interplay is tight and the band are usually galloping along like a drug cartel getaway vehicle making its way down the desolate Mexican highways in escape of the narcotics unit.  The main riffs may not be as difficult to appreciate and headbanging to them is quite easy compared to doing so during transitions when the lead sections enter the fray.  The band does slow down on occasion to vary the tempos and add songwriting nuance, but they don’t hover on these slow segments for long before it’s off to the races again, and the band attempt to kick butt in emphatic style.

The band isn’t traditionally old-school groove-oriented, and the Tampa terrors seemingly don’t stamp an influence on Question in the least bit. Question’s style is hard to find in the metal scene these days, and that should give fans more reason to check out their tape release before inventory is exhausted.  Play the stream below and get enlightened. There’s nothing like an ad-hoc listen to help decide whether a band’s music fits in your record collection, so give this a try.
