Face it: Math rock is hard. And these guys make it look obscenely easy.

The debut full length from PA rockers A Voice Like Rhetoric is an impressive foray into the world of math rock. Conveying a new level of technicality and pop sensibility, Ethos is one of the most accessible contributions to the genre, simultaneously pleasing fans of The Fall Of Troy and Senses Fail. Despite the range of comparative bands, A Voice Like Rhetoric manage to mold their influences into something both catchy as hell and wholly their own.

Substream Music Press
Be sure to get on the band wagon (no lame pun intended) and check out this band before they're the next big thing at your local high school.

They're certainly part of a small group of bands, but ones that search for a little more, within a scene largely dismissed for repetition and unoriginality.

A Voice Like Rhetoric is somewhere between the math rock stylings of Norma Jean and Look Mexico (Yes, that's a pretty large gap) and will most likely draw comparisons to The Fall Of Troy. Basically they borrow from the screamo and math rock genres to form a sound that is user friendly as far as techs and scenesters are concerned.

It's like a punch in the face, I'm talkin about time changes bro!
