Bionatops Streaming “The Great Pancake Massacre Of 1957”

“The Great Pancake Massacre Of 1957,” the latest burst of auditory madness from Bionatops, has now come online and can be heard below, culled fro the outfit’s curious “Voices” debut that is set to drop on September 22nd.

“Voices” sees Bionatops creator/instrumentalist Joseph Spiller (ex-System Divide, Caricature, The Binary Code, Too Late The Hero) and drummer Jeff Willet (ex-Black Crown Initiate) delivering a boldly bizarre mutation of progressive, technical, and overall plainly odd metal.

“When that AM hankering comes a callin’, sometimes you make bad choices,” Spiller issues of the track. “This is a song about that… sort of. This would be our narrator through the journey that is ‘Voices,’ recalling his firsthand account of an event that happened at least thirty to fifty years before he was born and having a great time. I can’t listen back to this song without cautiously craving delicious pancakes and other breakfast delights.”

The video, created by Aaron Hymes, can be seen below.

Explains drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor:

“‘Emperor of sand’ is like the grim reaper. Sand represents time. If you or anyone you know has ever received a terminal diagnosis, the first thought is about time. Invariably, you ask, ‘How much time is left?'”.

Adds bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders:

“We’re reflecting on mortality. To that end, the album ties into our entire discography. It’s 17 years in the making, but it’s also a direct reaction to the last two years. We tend to draw inspiration from very real things in our lives.”
