It is generally angry, noisy, and raw. It contains screaming guitars, shouted vocals, and sounds of crashing metal. Others have called it "math rock" and "noisecore."
In general, Transfixr, a three-some from Texas, could care less, and they're quick to mention that. In fact, they pretty much eschew the whole nature of music (or anything) as commodity, even though they've got a distribution deal through metal mega-label Relapse Records.
And they make this very clear through their music. Do not get captivated by Transfixr's raw nature. There are messages here that deserve listening to. The band's Tincture CD is filled with several.
"No Radio God," for example, is a testament to freeing the airwaves. Frustrated by the formulaic, cash-register mentality of commercial radio, and spurred to action by the FCC's raids on microradio stations in Austin and San Marcos, Texas, this is their shout of rage.
The lyrics are appropriately oblique, and the sonic backdrop is aggressively frustrated. It is a good thing.
