This is what you might call My Top Dog.
Trite, earthly languages such as english do not contain the necessary descriptives for a proper overview, however...
...communicates in just the required tongue.
If you have been SUCKED this deep down into the Musical Maelstrom of this website, then you should fit neatly into one of two categories:
__(a) YOU have HEARD Severed Heads
__(b) Your BRAIN must now be FORMATTED
Now, if __(b) applies to your deprived, paltry little pseudo-existence, then you had better HAUL your poor, mangey, musically-challenged ASS over to some of the linked websites below and proceed onward to your
One-Way Travel Package.
This brings us to my Low-Down on SevCom:
This gentleman and his many collaborators work in a different realm; on a completely seperate
level of existence from you or I, or anyone else in my directories. "Hyberbole" you say? BALDERDASH!! You see, these are
not just musicians we are dealing with here. They are more like Cryptic Manipulators of Sound and Media.
The "music" of Severed Heads is constructed, culled and assembled from an endless array of widely varying sources & resources, including
nostalgic snippets, found sounds, and other sonic treachery.

The actual end SEVCOM product can range all the way from Dance/ Trance/ Electronic beat-oriented ditties, otherworldly collages and melodic conflagrations, all the way over to eerie soundscapes -- some of which are just blotto with obscure samplings, and which often give way to multi-layered, ever-morphing, quasi-musical Mindfucks.
~This material will evoke a variety of responses from its listeners: the music and associated sounds seem to be able to transport us to stark, profound places within our own minds. They even seem to have the ability to manipulate the the very emotions and thought processes of those who partake. (especially when one "partakes" while driving very late at night in the middle of fucking NOWHERE)
YOU - NOW - must listen to Tom's generous library of free audio samples at SEVCOM.com -- and please, listen to a good cross-section, and listen well ; you certainly cannot attempt to pigeonhole the music of Severed Heads by casually listening to 1 or 2 tracks from one or two albums.
