The best kept secret in music


genre labels rarely aptly describe the bands theyre attached to, and they certainly do little to explain the spastic, razor-sharp music on The Martial Arts. Cory Byrom -

"The Martial Arts isn't just about wanton experimentation or diversity... it's the goddamn guitar album of 2006. With unexpected twists and turns around every corner, each song pile-drives your carcass into a host of irresistible riffs and inventive changes."--JonPfeffer - Tiny Mix Tapes

"Coming in at about a half-hour, The Martial Arts doesn't afford itself the luxury of time to commit the great math-rock sin of devolving into introverted wankery. Thank goodness, too. A promising young band like this would be really boring if they had bigger chops than balls." - MATTHEW FIELD - CMJ

"The Martial Arts isn't stictly about tricky time patterns or multi-genre change-ups, at its core this is a guitar album where riffs rule." Doug Simpson - Skyscaper

"With a debut this good, how do you follow it up? 5/5" Matt Hutcheson -

"Twitchy time signatures, fiercely intricate drum patterns, dualing guitars, and speak/shouting about things not quite right in the world... just what you've come to expect from Dischord. Only it's from Athens, GA's Hello Sir Records." Sam -
