Tera Melos released their third studio album "Patagonian Rats" this past Tuesday, September 7. From what I've heard, they have evolved their music in a direction that will embrace surviving enthusiasts and new ears alike. The whole album has strayed away from their signature instrumental sound. They've incorporated vocals throughout the entire album and the drumbeats resemble pop rock music from time to time. However, this does not pollute the sound of their stringed instruments as they thrash through endless amounts of hammer-ons and slides and seemingly random chords that fans have come to love. There's a music video for the track "Frozen Zoo" which is a neat suprise, and a joy to watch. Very trippy. I can't wait to get my hands on this record.
