Being huge into jazz and metal and math rock, never thought I would find a band that fused all three of those. This is my new favorite band, can’t get over how good they are. No bad albums at all. I can’t stop listening.
Favorite track: VXVPR.
I discovered Dumb Waiter just yesterday and I can safely say they have a lifelong fan in me. The combination of jazz and metal is so cool and sonically distinct! I look forward to listening and re-listening to what they have done and what they have yet to do... Well done!
Favorite track: JRQT.
"This is a band that isn’t pushing the envelope so much as they’re shoving it right over the side of a goddamn cliff. If you’re tired of the same old same old, then Dumb Waiter absolutely MUST be on your radar." -Metal Sucks
"Richmond, Virginia instrumental noise/experimental/math rock freakies Dumb Waiter are no stranger to the weird. But on their fourth album, Tsk, the band has only dived deeper into the strange, and they’ve done so by playing things a bit more straight. I mean, if that’s confusing, sure, welcome to the world of Dumb Waiter."

An excellent example of metal jazz, mixing different styles and moving borders of music genres. Month after month I know more bands playing kinda alternative, just to mention: Messa, Merkabah, Lonkser See, Five The Hierophant. Some may say its not music anymore, but they're wrong! Marcin Wielewski
