The new formation have picked up where the closing track of that epic left off, with a reintroduction in the upcoming LP, Dream Weapon. Hamilton Jordan spoke of the year segue between the albums. Dream Weapon is, loosely, an album-length meditation on that theme. Jordan again weighed in on the intent and significance overall of the second selection.
Before they could release a third full-length the trio called it a day, or at least commenced an indefinite hiatus, and only now have they returned to shake things up again. Featuring a revamped lineup, which includes Tony Wolski taking the place of original vocalist Mookie Singerman and the addition of a live drummer to their ranks, their sound has also dramatically evolved. While their past records perhaps most commonly draw likeness to The Dillinger Escape Plan , Dream Weapon is more readily compared to the likes of prog-synth legends Tangerine Dream or Zombi, leaning more heavily than ever on synths and samplers to create a lush, layered sound. Radio 1 Rock Show host Daniel P. Poughkeepsie prog-metallers Gengis Tron return from the wilderness, synthier but no less dizzying on brilliant third album…. Genghis Tron.
To their credit, Genghis Tron achieved that initial vision with a flourish. Much like their contemporaries in groups like The Dillinger Escape Plan, Tera Melos, and The Locust, Genghis Tron aimed for maximum sensory bombardment—incrementally allowing for more repetition and dynamics as their sound evolved, but overall staying true to the overstimulated mindset of the era. Then the group, weary from touring, decided to take a break in The break was supposed to last for a year at most. To put in perspective just how long Genghis Tron had dropped out of sight, the band announced their hiatus on MySpace—a relic of an era that feels like a lifetime ago. Indeed, for purveyors of niche metal subgenres, twelve and a half years between albums might as well be an eternity.
