The Bullet Conscience has always prided themselves on the blistering rhythmic structures emanating from Kaplan's madman drumming. Max writes melodic tapping parts and is increasing his focus on the subtle aspects of sound as he is currently studying formal composition at Stanford. Jon's bass playing bridges the line between melodic and rhythmic, as bass melody is a key element in a three-person instrumental band. In the end, you can break down The Bullet Conscience's playing and structures, but it defies their process. They write organic instrumental music meant to be raw and expressive.
