Off Minor - Problematic Courtship (2002)

Off Minor - Problematic Courtship (2002)

Off Minor formed from 3/5's of Saetia. That might not mean much to some people(blend:P), but to me that is all I needed to know. They continue down the same path that Saetia started to clear back in 1997. With only 3 members in the this band, I am astounded at the level of noise they are able to create! This is their first recorded effort from 2002. A perfect fusion of jazz and hardcore, with some crazy ass time signatures thrown in. If you like your beauty mixed with a heavy helping of chaos, this is the band for you. This album collects the 6 songs from their split with I am the Resurrection and 4 live tracks. I have this original split if anyone wants the I am the Resurrection tracks.

there isn't un an untitled bonus track after the live? damn they do a cover of uoa on one of their releases, spot on to if i remember correctly the song they covered was "painfully obvious." anyway it ripped. if you know of this or where to find it i would be extremely happy.

Cover of My Father's Dreams by AOF was released on their split with St. Albans Kids.

But I dunno any other covers they did and I think I own everything this band has done. One of my favorite bands period. So fucking talented and emotional.
