BUCKETHEAD (as Bucketheadland) / Pike 264 - Poseidon / 21st release of 2017 / All instrumental / Contains 6 tracks all titled “Poseidon” / Clocks in at 30minutes 18seconds / everything played by Buck-buck-buckethead. Like many of these same track named PIKEs, this one’s playlist runs together fairly seamless merely passing the melody baton onto the next track

“Poseidon Part 1” (6:12) begins with clean guitars that echo in response to ambient backgrounds. And then heavy grungy guitars start in and create an industrial metal type playfulness with the ambience. Then it turns into heavy alternative metal riffing for a while before it slows down to a placid respite in aggressiveness with clean mellowness. Of course it picks back up with crunchy riffing and some melodic solos that aren’t fast but complementary. There is a nice mix of melody and virtuosity on this one. An excellent track that takes different aspects of previous PIKEs and stitches them together in a rather pleasant way

“Poseidon Part 2” (3:10) continues melodically from the previous track but after a grungy sustain emerges a clean echo guitar that carries the melody until another crunchy metal guitar riff picks up again. Like the last track it is sort of in the mid tempo range but still rather forceful in delivery. The emphasis remains on the melody which makes this PIKE so far an easy pill to swallow.

“Poseidon Part 3” (4:01) picks up the melody and creates a more sophisticated interaction between rhythmic and soloing dynamics. Lots of staccato riffing with melodic guitar sticking its nose in every little crack it can sniff out, ooooo baby. Nice melodic guitar solos are flowing like fruit of a cornucopia. Bravo!

“Poseidon Part 4” (4:36) seamlessly transitions tracks with a crunchy guitar riff and licks but slows down for a while into near ambience only until it picks up the crunchiness once again and alternative bands head for a while.

“Poseidon Part 5” (6:32) at this point i’ve had a few beers and anything sounds good but it continues the fucking album in a pleasurable weigh. I want to insert floppy discs into my smart phone

“Poseidon Part 6” (5:47) makes me think that i liked Wanda Sykes as the voice of the skunk in “Over The Hedge” for no particular reason actually

POSEIDON was the Olympian god of the sea, earthquakes, floods, drought and horses. He was depicted as a mature man with a sturdy build and dark beard holding a trident (a three-pronged fisherman's spear). God of drought AND horses? Who made this shit up. How about god of draught and porters. My kinda god. I rarely drink, i swear
