Jazz Lingo cover art

I'm still not sure what I think of mathcore as a genre, but I do know that some bands can take the chaotic and often highly technical basis of the genre to strange new realms that can really speak to the listener. There is a strange profane beauty to the music of Polyphony. The band comes in at a perfect intersection of technical madness, hardcore destruction, and local scene magic. The end result is something very human coming from some top notch musicians. The use of dynamic contrast fits in nicely with some tormented vocal passages that aren't going to let you rest easily. The demented vibe that many of these songs seem to revel in only adds to the glory of the band and speaks to the power of local scenes to push forth some truly exciting music. Delving into the bands EP Jazz Lingo has certainly been an enjoyable musical voyage, sure many of the songs are chaos embodied, and I don't quite get the lyrics, but man, if you want something otherworldly and a little bit mysterious, this is the album for you!
