interesting stuff, not my favorite, but definitely a solid band with a unique sound. If you like their heavier stuff, try lacuna coil, they rule.

yup....I used to be into At-The-Drive-In quite a bit, and then tuffy109 clued me into Volta....but I'm into them all that much. They're obviously super talented and are doing some really creative things, but I dunno, I just don't find myself listening to them all that much.

I just discovered this band for myself.

Bottom line, If you've never heard them, you should really give it a shot.

They are like a heavy metal salsa band inspired by Pink Floyd.

I can't stop listening to them.

I've been listening to them since ATDI broke up and Cedric and Omar formed Mars Volta.

The Mars Volta is a prime example of giving people who like drugs the opportunity to go wild and make incredible music, experimental as it may be.

Omar has a solo album out, it's hard to find, but he's got some sick salsa inspred rock tracks on it. It's just called Omar Rodriguez.
