MASERATI chose the right band name. Sometimes while listening to this band I think of driving such a car. I'm driving after accomplishing something downright awesome in a blockbuster film.
MASERATI plays a slick and epic style of ambient instrumental rock infused with harder rock (I may even say metal). You've got slow, epic buildups, very similar to Gifts From Enola, especially with MASERATI's older material. The new material is similar to the old but has injections of electronic and psychedelic music, especially in the Daft Punk/Tron style. The new stuff makes me think of what Pelican may have sounded like if they were hired to do the original Ghostbusters soundtrack - I shit you not.
The drummer was killed in a bizarre set of events in 2009 during which he fell down an elevator shaft and his last recording was on the phenomenal 'Pyramid Of The Sun', which was released in 2010. The band has since acquired a new drummer and recently released 'Maserati VII' in 2012.
If you're looking for a fantastic instrumental rock/ambient post-metal/hardcore outfit with great, catchy and complex rhythms, check these guys out. They're due for a new record, also, as they are currently writing.
