Many Arms is an instrumental band from Philadelphia. It's a triumvirate of valiant warriors crusading, not against each other or a predisposed enemy, but against the physical and creative boundaries of self, time, space, shape and form. Many Arms stares downward at the gorge between noise-rock abandon and prog-rock precision as Satan's iPod blasts forth from Hell, shuffling nervously between Ornette Coleman's The Shape of Jazz To Come and Refused's The Shape of Punk to Come — until echoes of Arnold Schoenberg, John Coltrane, Derek Bailey and John Cage appear.
