The Redneck Manifesto are one of the premier acts of the math rock canon. They are a band hailing from
Dublin, alongside other illustrious
Irishmath rock acts such as
Alarmist, BATS, and Adebisi Shank. Being purely
instrumental and guitar-centric, alternating between clean
soft-sounding arrangements and fuzzed-out post-hardcore ones, and making sporadic use of electronic elements, they could be thought of as the
Irish response to Don Caballero; The Redneck
Manifesto, however, have a very unique and instantly recognizable sound
that is very strongly melodic, and influenced by electronic
music to some extent (c.f. Jape).
