ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sonic Mutations Spur Musical Evolution:
Results may vary.

Do you enjoy music that challenges rather than insults your intelligence (musical and otherwise)?
Do you prefer albums that provide a new sonic experience with each listen? Then Geoparasitism is the album for you. You’ll find genres change not from song to song; genre lines blur within songs. Songs spiral from experimental psychedelic jazz funk to prog metal with teleporting time changes and noise fests that would confuse Lou Reed.

The Mad Scientists have done the unthinkable by creating a monster that combines DIY ethos with outstanding musicianship. Slick and overproduced “indie” music is not what you’ll find on Geoparasitism. Instead, you’ll find music that is rough, raw, and challenges the listener to question their perceptions, both musically and otherwise.

The Mad Scientists have also beautifully merged the best of both modern and older music by taking musical and social elements from the 90s alternative revolution and combining punk’s angry social consciousness and the swirling unexpliciable confusion generated by avant-garde, jazz, and 60s psychedelia. One manifestation of this insanity on Geoparasitism is their choice to use analogue recording equipment instead of today’s more favored and slick pro-tools digital vices. The band took this route in order to capture the energy that is present in classic albums from artists like Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, and early Butthole Surfers. While albums from these artists may have minor technical flaws, the intensity will never be surpased by modern music that implement digital tools, which hide mistakes but strip the performance of its passion.


How to Take Mankind’s Next Evolutionary Step
National published writer Christopher Largen has observered, “Geoparisitism will challenge listeners musically and socio-politically. A few of the songs function as fine singles, but this eclectic fusion is rich with sonic layers and overarching lyrical themes, and so deserves to be experienced in full, with a macrocosmically enlightened ear.” If you are ready to take the challenge and evolve, check out out Geoparasitism.

Christopher Largen (JUNK, Prescription Pot)

Geoparisitism will challenge listeners musically and socio-politically.
Welcome to the dark underbelly of experimental psychedelic jazz funk, where conspiracies have global relevance and humanity (to quote brilliant comedian Bill Hicks), is “a virus with shoes”. The Mad Scientists descend into their laboratory to blaze musical trails like hallucinogenic tracers, mocking and deconstructing the capitalism, competition, greed, selfishness, waste, and spiritual disconnection that lead our human race to the precipice of self-annihilation. Geoparisitism will challenge listeners musically and socio-politically. A few of the songs function as fine singles, but this eclectic fusion is rich with sonic layers and overarching lyrical themes, and so deserves to be experienced in full, with a macrocosmically enlightened ear.

Intelligent Sound That Defies Genre
One listen leaves you scratching your head. But the riffs loop through your head over and over...on the second listen, your ear begins raveling the warp and the woof of each unique tune. A third listen and you're hooked. These guys pierce the veil of mainstream rock and blast you into a new sphere where sound is redefined and lyrics make you really think.
