Many years back, my father, Ryc (Also known an RGTFanatic here on Jemsite), gave me and my brother a few CD's of his to listen to. A lot of them were more what I'd find his taste to be, and a bit of Pantera. But mostly just some good Rock. Except for one. . . . . .


Fredrik. Thordendal's. Special. Defects.

For those of you who don't know, Fredrik Thordendal is one of the guitarists for Meshuggah.

This 80's glam rocker has one of the most metal albums on the planet. Some of the classic, and original Djent. And it's weird as FU*K! For those here who know him, you'd know that he's an 80's guy all day. Desert Sun Yellow RG550 and all.

The best part is that this is a burnt CD! He didn't just pick it up by mistake. e got the files somewhere and made it!

Father, why do you have this and why did you NEVER put it on? You actually knew more about Meshuggah before I had ever even listened to metal. And you don't listen to metal! :lol:

Explain!

And now my quest is complete!!!!

I've told you since you were very little to listen to, and learn from everything musical. Great guitar work is just that, no matter what genre it's being played on.

When I first heard Thordendal (through Mark Simsick) this was brand new and unheard. I loved the structured chaos.......... I still do.

That's not Grandma's favorite song is it?

It makes me want to crack out some Tom Waits or Mr. Bungle!

I Love the little Troll they have singing for the group!
HA!

Have you ever listened to Mr. Bungle?

If not, check out their fist CD with the pics of drunk clowns all over the insert.

I DID put Mr. Bungle afterwards!

But I'm still surprised that you had this. It's like a Djenty Black Metal Bungle.

Haha that's fantastic. Special Defects is a pretty weird cd, though it sure does contain some excellent and interesting sections. For open minded people, artists like Maynard J Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle, Pusifer, and more), and Mike Patton (Mr Bungle, Fantomas, Mondo Cane, Peeping Tom, and of course Faith No More plus others) both have a lot of weird yet very interesting music covered.

I actually saw Mr. Bungle tour on that fist CD.
It was in a small club in Minneapolis called, "1st Ave."
I also saw Vai on his PAW tour there too.

They guys in Mr. Bungle were dressed up in costumes to disguise themselves.

Mike Patton from Faith no More, was the singer.
He had a S&M mask on with a zipper mouth.

The Bass player was dressed like a clown playing a 5 or 6 string fretless Bass.

The Sax player had this big elephant head on.

I can't remember the rest of the outfits.

During the show Mike and the drummer had a fight and knocked the drum kit all over the place.
They eventfully set it back up and stated playing again.
They were such a tight band, it was nuts.
I've never done drugs but I felt like I did that night.
The music made you want to dive off the balcony in to the crowd!

I've never seen another show quite like that.

It sound just like the CD!
