AMN Reviews: U SCO – Treffpunkt (2014; New Atlantis Records)

a0057794967_2Hailing from Portland, Oregon, this heavy prog / jazz / metal trio provides 40 minutes of King Crimson inflected angularity on Treffpunkt. Featuring Jon Scheid on bass, Ryan Miller on guitar, and Phil Cleary on drums, the trio blasts through eight tracks of heavy instrumental riffing and disjointed rhythms. With a punk urgency, Miller alternates between providing distorted atmospheres and hard strumming on his guitar. The rhythm section lays down time changes with math-rock ease. You could try to dance to Treffpunkt, but you’d probably break both legs.
