Subpar Co-star Such an inspiring record that defies classification, but I'll try: chaotic beauty and stripped down madness meeting at an art house to burn it down... hmmm.... nope, couldn't describe it. Guess you'll just have to listen for yourself. Favorite track: Apple Or A Gun.

Robert Orr Absolutely raw and powerful, yet subdued and practically whispering at times. The perfect musical representation of a volcano and the process of its eruption. One hell of a seizure. Favorite track: Red And White Bells.

Beautiful Seizure is the debut album from the Chicago trio volcano!, and it’s an intense, exhilarating and immensely rewarding ride.
What may at first sound chaotic and unplanned reveals itself on repeated listening as meticulously structured: rhythms gather, flicker, melt (down) and emerge as something different; splenetic episodes give way to passages of hymnal calm which in turn are shattered as language breaks down into strobe-like stuttering.
