The Anatomy Of: Bionatops – Heavy Blog Is Heavy

“You may not immediately recognize the name BIONATOPS, but you’re likely familiar with the two dudes behind this oddball avant garde rock project. Ringleader Joseph Spiller is a longtime friend of the site, and is known for his band Caricature in addition to serving time in acts such as System Divide and Binary Code. Percussionist Jeff Willet has done session and touring drums for many acts in the past, most notably Black Crown Initiate and Aborted Existence. Their new project is unlike anything that their lineage may suggest; their debut album VOICES is wonky Primus and Mike Patton worship that often hints at thrash leanings.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
