The Mars Volta (also known by the initialism TMV) is a Grammy award winning American progressive rock band from El Paso, Texas. Founded in 2001 by guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López and vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala, the band incorporates various influences including progressive rock, krautrock, jazz fusion, Latin American music, and the rhythmic complexity of math rock into their sound. They are known for their energetic live shows, as well as their concept-based studio albums. In 2009, the band won a Grammy Award in the "Best Hard Rock Performance" category for the song "Wax Simulacra." They were named rock music's "Best Prog-Rock Band" of 2008 by Rolling Stone magazine.

"The Volta is taken from a Federico Fellini book about his films, what he characterizes as a changing of scene, or a turnaround; a new scene to him is called Volta. Y'know, changing of time and the changeover. And Mars, we're just fascinated by science fiction so and it's something that ultimately looked as in anything I write, its meaning is always up to the listener. As the way we write songs and words, if it looks great on paper then to us it's like painting, so if it looks good meaning the second then people usually have a better interpretation than we ever would."

    I saw Mars Volta about 6 years ago.

    They were awesome live, but you cannot understand a word he says.


    Also, I was this close to making a DOTA chat. Count yourselves lucky.

    Is Mars Volta better than DOTA, or does it lead to DOTA.

    You morons, it's just purple! You can paint over it! Are you seriously passing on this house because you would have to paint one room? Oh my god hire some mexicans, it'll be done in 3 hours and it will cost you $100. This is a 1.4 million dollar mansion on the beach, what is wrong with you?
