Music Reviews: Sutured Psyche - "None The Wiser" DVD/CD

Sutured Psyche was one of those bands that was only on the scene for a short period of time. But in that time they left a lasting impression. The band was very dark and brooding in appearance, but very concise in their songwriting. This was also a group of very competent musicians, well rounded in their playing and songwriting. It's just a shame that they didn't last a little longer. But as the band plans to hit the stage for one last performance on October 19th at The Elbo Room in Chicago, we can relive the excitement of their live shows on this amazing new DVD/CD combo, "None The Wiser: Two Years Of Sutured Psyche" (out now and available HERE).

The DVD is a live history of the bands music and features 9 tracks, as well as animation and bonus features. So, there's something for everyone. The show itself, filmed at Elbo Room in January of this year, shows a band who not only takes command of it's song catalog with intense playing and firey vocals thanks to Doctor Paimon, but also demand the attention of the crowd, which they GET 100% of! Sutured Psyche was a band who really took their live performances seriously. You can FEEL the energy and excitement in the air when they go into "Invocation" and "Anything". And the energy their feeding the audience is coming back 2 fold by an energetic crowd. It truly is a live testament to a group who are leaving us way too soon.

Paimon's a strong singer for the style of music he plays. He's got a very powerful presence about him, all dressed in black and tall in stature. He's
definitely the kind of frontman that will hold your attention. And the other guys, (Ryan Reilly on guitar, Brian O'Callaghan and drummer Michael T. Signal) are tight and relentless on "Daniel" and "Belbo's Stomp". This is a group that can really pull out all the stops and give these songs a life of their own live. It's a great DVD to watch, or CD to listen to in the car. It's a feast for the eyes AND ears! It's just such a win win! I can only hope that the band will reunite at some point in the near future and bring back the energy to the stage. Gentlemen, you WILL be missed!

4 / 5 stars
