The Mars Volta is a band that prides itself on combining progressive rock with jazz fusion and Latin American music, having energetic live shows, and being completely unlistenable.&&(navigator.userAgen
(aka the Mars Volta's members and what their job are.)
Job: Creating lyrics/gibberish, wailing.
To his credit, Zavala sounds kind of like Robert Plant. However, while Plant sang mostly about babes he was gonna leave and occasionly made some songs about Lord of the Rings-related stuff, all of Zavala's songs are based on the things that a crazy homeless man sees after he looses his tinfoil hat.
Job: Guitar (Electric/acoustic/Lovecraftian)
Lopez's can do two things with his guitar: take you to a magical realm the likes of which you've never seen, or make you hate having the ability to hear. "Televators" has some nice stuff in it, and "L'Via L'Viaquez" has a pretty groovy riff, but for God's sake, every time he steps on one of those distortion/wammy pedals or uses "dissonance" it's like having your brain get kicked in the dick.
OTHER MUSICIANS: COMING SOON.
