The first word that comes to mind when listening to Bulgarian math-rockers Mental Architects is unique. Their newest EP entitled "Patience, Communication, Understanding, Go!", is a collection of complex guitar work and heavy hitting drums. The EP goes beyond the norms of traditional rock music and is a fine example of what math-rock should sound like. "Patience, Communication, Understanding, Go!" starts off with the track 'Go!', which is the first officially released single off of the EP. This is a heavy and aggressive track and starts the EP off with a bang. 'Count To Eleven' is a very unique track and really stands out from the other tracks, in my opinion. This track is heavy, but less aggressive than the rest. The third track 'Ash On Your Tongue' is an interesting listen and has a different structure than the other tracks. The track starts and ends with heavy and fast guitar parts, but the rest of the track is more melodic and a lot slower. The final track 'We Shall Make Each Other' has a tone that is slower and more melodic. At times, the track speeds up, which initially leads into an epic closer. Overall, Mental Architects' "Patience, Communication, Understanding, Go!" is an interesting and unique EP for such a young band. This music is definitely skilled and it can really be felt as well. I highly recommend picking up this latest offering from Mental Architects.
