Iwrestledabearonce might be the most original and unique bands of the past 5 or 6 years. In recent years emo, screamo, deathcore, mathcore and all the o's and cores have become a little bit the same. New bands are coming out but sounding the same as everyone else in the genre. Iwrestledabearonce really can't be put into a particular category. They're truly unique.
Some songs have a distinct Dillinger Escape Plan sound to them whereas others have a Dream Theater and Beneath The Buried And Me feel.
Musically its a step above the rest, they are borderline musical geniuses, it's fast, it's complex, it's revolutionary. The time signatures are insane, it's as if they've used algebra equations to somehow create music...
The vocalist is a female who can scream and growl like most of the men in the hardcore, deathcore etc... genres, but at times she'll take her voice back down to a melodic level and give beautiful vocals.
Overall: Iwrestledabearonce is like a million other bands all mashed together. You'll listen to parts of their songs and say "oh it sounds like____", and then 10 seconds later you'll want to take that back. They're everything you've heard before and more.
For fans of Dillinger Escape Plan, Bjork, Dream Theater, David Bowie.
I really can't recommend this CD enough, it's a Work Of Art.

This band is sick! So talented. Their music is fun and energetic.
Anyone who likes their metal, avant-garde metal & metalcore/deathcore. Get on it! So much style and variation. A mega band!
