Got some softies and some rockers. Soma by Windhand, Breaking The Backs Of Men - Black Tusk - Passage Through Purgatory (CD. Relapse Sampler by Relapse Sampler. Till Marijannah by Marijannah. Amazing album, as are all of them, but this song stands out!!!
Just received new album and going to give a listen now! Thanks for all the effort - keeps me going all the time! Explore music. Katimavik86 Thundering riffs, pounding drums, shouted vocals Straight-forward sludge metal steeped in hardcore punk and this is the album that gave them that voice. Absolutely essential must-have recording. Favorite track: Fixed In The Ice. Rick Lyter. Jeffrey Schrader.
Max Dembo. Roman Protsiuk. Fvckin Poser. Matthew Gilmour. Jala Peno. Iron OX. Anton van der Geest. Benjamin Merritt. Overall, it's a solid album and prime sample of Black Tusk's sound.
Imagine waking up to the sound of men screaming in agony. The sky is black with smoke and the Album) is filled with the salty scent of freshly spilled blood. Limbs have been hacked and bodies torn apart from swords, axes and bare hands. This is the type of atmosphere that Black Tusk set when playing their own version of sludge that they like to call "swamp metal". I like to Breaking The Backs Of Men - Black Tusk - Passage Through Purgatory (CD it war metal because of how barbaric and utterly bloodthirsty this band's debut sounds.
This may sound like a stretch, but this is easily our generation's Reign in Blood in terms of all out sonic rape. The album begins with the sound of a bubbling cauldron as drums signal the start of a very Album) intro track.
What follows is the ultimate boot in the face with Fixed in the Ice. This track features Philip Cope of Kylesa on vocals towards the end and the next three tracks utterly melt your brain to mush.
End of Days begins with a very smooth and powerful drum fill before the psychedelic sludge of Andrew Fidler's guitar screams into your mind while Jonathan Athon's bass rumbles like a giant under the ground. This is quintessential Black Tusk and easily one of the best tracks on the album. Instead of just having one man do all of the tortured screaming, drummer James May and Athon join Fidler in bringing depth and emotion to an already raw as hell vocal approach.
You can tell these guys were influenced by early 80s hardcore punk by the way they completely shred their vocal cords. The guitars are very muddy and dissonant and will leave you begging for more.
