Paper Hats
This Heat Lyrics

well, what do we expect
paper hats?
or maybe even roses?
the sound of explosions?
oh no, is this any easier?
comfy? climax? ego?
decorations up or down?
the sound of explosions
what does this tune signify?
what is its meaning?
is it really that straight forward?
or are our ears beyond words?

The percussion work is bad-ass! A very unique musical composition. Mind-blowing! Some tracks on the album remind me of the band Korn, i.e. the emotional screaming and erratic staff, clefs, rhythm, notes, and rests, meter and time signature, et al. My Dad may have told me about this band and played it to me as a child...he and his friend we're into this odd sounding music. However, I don't remember and was to young at the time. The lyrics and music remind of the philosophers :
Music is what life sounds like ~ Eric Olsen
When words leave off, music begins ~ Heinrich Heine
Music expresses that which cannot be said ~ Victor Hugo
Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music ~ Sergei Rachmaninov
Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul ~ Plato
Music is an outburst of the soul ~ Frederic Delius
Music is the universal language of mankind ~ Longfellow

It is a trip how many expressions/views can be displayed in a picture and through music. This band is one of the giants.
Even though it is not metal, metal bleeds through the emotional vocals and technicality of expression through musical composition.

Proto-math rock, about 10 years before its inception. The scariest and most aggressive song of the 80s.

Victim's Family was doing math rock in 1986.
