The Locust (1998), 6/10
Plague Soundscapes (2003), 6.5/10
New Erections (2007), 5/10

San Diego's Locust, featuring vocalist and bassist Justin Pearson, keyboardist Joey Karam, Cattle Decapitation's drummer Dave Astor and guitarist Bobby Bray, coined a unique brand of synth-driven progressive, noisy hardcore and grindcore.

The Locust (Gold Standard Laboratories, 1998), compiling 20 songs (none lasting longer than two minutes), introduced their aesthetic of brief explosive outbursts of dementia. Imagine Teenage Jesus & The Jerks with Morton Subotnick on synthesizers.

Astor was replaced in 2001 by another Cattle Decapitation alumnus, Gabe Serbian. Plague Soundscapes (Anti-, 2003), containing 22 songs, sounded even more ferocious than the debut.

The EP Safety Second, Body Last (2005), containing just two lengthy pieces, and New Erections (Anti-, 2007), containing several three-minute "songs", allowed more breathing space in between the sonic grenades (Aotkpta). Joey Karam's synthesizer and Gabe Serbian's drumming stood out.
