Mutation-Error 500


What happens when you get the likes of Shane Embury (Napalm Death), Ginger Wildheart (The Wildhearts) and Jon Poole (Cardiacs) together in a recording studio? Well, in a word "chaos". Or more specifically it's speed-blast infused and industrialized "chaos". Mutation, which is full-scale craziness in glorious color, is akin to taking a weird acid trip with Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers) and Al Jourgensen (Ministry) while attempting to create a fusion of grindcore and melodic rock with Andrew WK! Notice that I said "attempting" as these individuals, who also kidnapped the likes of Mark E Smith (The Fall) and Merzbow to help with the birthing pains of  "Error 500", don't quite get around to anything resembling normality. But then again that does seem to be the whole point of Mutation. As they all can together with the sole purpose being
"to hear an album that no one else looked likely to make", or at least not before the end of 2013, one could argue that Mutation did achieve that goal. The mere fact that "Error 500" is like nothing else (even by extreme metal standards) makes it a mandatory listening experience although, as a word of caution, do not play any music by Mutation in the presence of children, kittens, the elderly or anyone with a weak heart as this is "music" meant to destroy!
