Intermittent Parasitic Oscillation (Daredevil)

The latest effort from Cleveland math-metal trio Dissolute employs enough odd time signatures to send another generation of headbangers back to Calculating Infinity. But unlike the legion of Dillinger Escape Plan imitators ubiquitous in heavy music, Dissolute is a collective of competent songwriters, not show-offs. The band's blend of jackhammer guitars, distorted bass lines, and brainy drumming would be worth a listen even without the streamlined approach that makes Intermittent Parasitic Oscillation such a strong record.

While giving their corrosive riffs ample room to breathe, the players omit self-induldgent solos. "As It Is" features an insane groove sure to ignite the pit. LTV Steel may be dead, but bands like Dissolute prove there's no shortage of good metal in Cleveland. -- Matt Gorey
