BillXNye are a three piece (sometime 4 or 5 piece) grind/power science hardcore metal sometimes experimental noise improvisational group. The core concept behind the band and their music is science and facts over faith. Their songs are intense, noisy, dense layered and very challenging to the listener.

The episode with Poor Lily we uploaded last night had the last few minutes cut off. Here are those missing minutes and the outro "Injun Killer" off of Vuxola.
We are not professionals.
Poor Lily are a Punk/Hardcore "all male power trio" from the Bronx, NY. The band consists of Adam-Bass and Vocals, Max-Guitar, and Dom-Drums. Their music is a chaotic mix of time signatures, speed, and screeching guitar. At first listen they come off as a bunch of guys just making noisy music and having a good time but that's only half the story with this band. If you dig deeper you will find songs about a world spinning out of control and a government gone berzerk. At the center of this sonic whirlwind are three experienced and talented musicians working very hard to make it all appear effortless.
