The modern-prog wizards Tera Melos released their fourth full-length record, Trash Generator, this past August. The recording process brought the trio to Singing Serpent studios in San Diego, California, and marked the first time that the group’s madman drummer, John Clardy, was present for the entirety of the tracking period since joining them in 2008. Dense grooves, wild accent patterns, and rapid time changes abound throughout the album as the group furthers its signature experimental sound. Here we analyze key moments on Trash Generator and gain insight into some of the tracks from Clardy himself.

Inspired by the current Super Mario Bros. speed-run champion, this song about skipping worlds in a video game race to the finish provides plenty of IRL food for thought.

SPILL ALBUM REVIEW // TERA MELOS – TRASH GENERATOR 

Suffice to say that after 10 years as a band and the release of their 7thstudio album, Trash Generator, Tera Melos is simply at their prime. The band is a three-piece melting pot of post-hardcore and punk consisting of Nick Reinhart (Guitar, Vocals), Nathan Latona (Bass Guitar) and John Clardy (Drums).

After seeing the Sacramento-based live as it supported Chon in June, the band seemed to be really excited about the new music they were about to release, with Reinhart posting multiple videos of guitar parts that would be featured on this album. Surely it lived up to the hype the way they were promoting it.
