about

Apophenia is the phenomenon of the mind when, in a moment of sudden awareness, you see the patterns and relationships that link and relate things that otherwise seem unrelated and random. Seemingly unrelated and random is the domain of The Coretastrophe.

The Coretastrophe is a studio-bound collective of highly capable guitarists who participate in making personality-fractured instrumental recordings. Our music starts off with the familiarity of metal and then launches off into unpredictable attention-deficit tangents of other completely unrelated genres, merely for sport. The formula for our Rube Goldberg approach to making music is three parts agility mixed with two parts comedy and one part revenge, seasoned with a bit of absurdity.

We in the Coretastrophe each love metal, but all too often, metal music and metal culture make intolerably ridiculous presentations of themselves. All the toughguy insouciance, imaginary brutality, over-recycled musical structures, and hackneyed audio-visual aesthetics occasionally deserve to have handlebar moustaches and clown noses drawn upon them to chokehold them back into reality. When metal assaults your misfortunate ears AND your better sensibilities with yet another tritonal breakdown or another thesaurus-fetched stanza riddled with expletives, we see it as our duty to duct-tape its mouth shut and pull its shorts down around its ankles so everyone can point and laugh and realize it's not so tough after all.
