the Green Dome – Jungle, Against the Wall, Funktion Review

To put it aptly, this is solid, funky music with a twist. Whenever you expect a right turn, the Green Dome gives you a left. In “Jungle” they chug along with a 16th note beat that choppily pushes the tune forward until the melodic breakdown, led by a metal toned riff created to sear into your memory.

“Against the Wall” rocks your face off in the opening bars, and continues in this fashion until all you have left is a Skeletor looking abscess, with eyeballs, but no discernible features, or skin, to speak of. It isn’t until midway through the tune that you start to restore your facial expressions to their normal, well toned features – and then they tear it off again.

Funktion is pretty much what you would think. A bass heavy, ode to the 70’s – the guitar and bass provide the “funk” while the drums do their own thing, all leading to another metal sounding lead – I’ll tell you what – the Dome shreds – they remind me of a jam band that got a contract with the NFL, spent 7 years getting pounded, and then came out as a clairvoyant, ripping and rocking jazz styled rhythm fused with the intensity and grandiosity of a metal band.
