Tarantula Hawk

Band from Oakland, California featuring ex-members of The Locust and a guy who played in the latest Faust album. They released two albums and played some sort of instrumental psychedelic progressive post-punk heavily based on synth/organ. Their first album featured also some The Locust influences, with blastbeats and aggression. Their second album was more psychedelic/hazy with a touch of slow-building doom metal riffs. I think of them as kind of Word As Law/Souls At Zero-era Neurosis with the keyboards of Genesis. Aside from their two albums, they maintained a site that offered three live recordings that are way more psychedelic and lysergic, and I upload all of them here. Enjoy.
