LOL. Thanks for the tip. That was right up my alley. Do you know much of the band's origins? Any precursors I should know about?


According to their myspace page their influences are

Well these are all some great influences jazz, classical and avant-garde wise (not counting Slayer and Meshuggah, that's probably where they emulate their rage from) but I can hear a lot of Mr. Bungle in their music, and bands such as Dr. Nerve have elements of their music that can be heard in miRthkon's work. Apart from that, I'd say rock in opposition/avant-prog music is the only other precursor that specifically caters to the sound of miRthkon, without going into the specific genres that the band meshes into their music.

Somebody mentioned the Allmans:

I was going to suggest Mouse On The Keys, but they are hardly "furious". Either way, check them out. However, The Flying Luttenbachers are certainly a fitting band.

Once I made a thread about Dazzling Killmen.

It got some mixed responses a year or so later.
Maybe I'm doing it wrong but they're still the first band that pops into my mind when I hear a phrase like "furious jazz rock"

After listening to some previews I like what I heard but I'm not sure I would have ever labled them as jazz rock. If anything they seem reminiscent of someone like Big Black. Will track some down and give it a proper listen anyway.

Yeah, I suppose you're right.
Still, I feel that there's some Jazz in there - more so than in typical noise rock or post rock or math rock, et cetera.

Eric Johnson's jazz-rock project, Electromagnets could be mentioned here.
"Furious" jazz-rock makes me think also of jazzcore, whose best representative is John Zorn and the supergroup Painkiller.
