You may not have realised this, but jazz-fusion is pretty fucking metal. The unending musical possibilities thrown up by embracing this eccentric form of music have been exploited to their fullest by Trioscapes, formed by Between The Buried And Me’s Dan Briggs after recording a cover of a Mahavishnu Orchestra song with some muso friends.
Trioscapes: Time For Jazz Club
Virtuosos playing metal with no limits
Alongside sax ’n’ flute maestro Walter Fancourt and drummer Matt Lynch, Dan is confounding and delighting fans of his other band in equal measure with new album Digital Dream Sequence: a sort of Meshuggah-meets-Mr Bungle affair driven along by a saxophone with a mind of its own. As the bassist explains, even though the trio’s interpretation is fresh, the idea of mixing jazz and metal isn’t a new one.
