Mad mathcore. Released digitally for free, as well as on vinyl, eccentric French band Dacast certainly created a difficult album in Dedale, a long form mathcore/metalcore piece, 35 minutes of jazz inspired madness that reminds me of some of Naked City's works, especially with the uses of brief silences and outbursts of madness that seem to come from nowhere.

I'd be lying if I said I understood much of the meaning behind the album itself, but if I had to guess, I'd say that probably isn't important. It's an album that sweeps you up in the eccentricity and holds you tight until it has completely run its course. What makes it difficult is that it keeps you on edge throughout, jumping around with such frenetic energy that it is undeniably an exhausting listen, especially if heard in one sitting.

Of course, that is a key aspect of metalcore, with an uncompromising power and ruthlessness to the music, precise and potentially deadly. Dedale is not a masterpiece, not to me anyway; but it is an experience. And seeing as it's free to listen to on Dacast's bandcamp, check it out. Metalcore fans may find something well worth cherishing here.
