The Mars Volta

This band is a little different from my usual posts, but I think you guys will appreciate it! They're style is very unique, I have little else I can say about that. I've even heard a story of how their bass player became mentally unstable (went crazy, somehow) because of the music they wrote, but as far as I know, it's just a rumor.

The Mars Volta is a progressive rock band from El Paso, Texas. The band members include: Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (guitar), Cedric Bixler-Zavala (vocals), Juan Alderete (bass), Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez (synth, keys, percussion), Deantoni Parks (drums), and Lars Stalfors (sound manipulation, keys). They've gone through many member changes, but the vocalist and guitarist have been around since the original lineup. Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) even laid down some bass tracks for them at some point. They have somewhere around 8 albums released and....I'm done typing stuff, let's get to the good part!

"Televators"

"L'Via L'Viaquez"

"Inertiatic ESP"
 

"The Widow"

And a live version of "L'Via L'Viaquez"
 

That's all for now, I hope you enjoy.
Keep Rockin'!
