Heavy Track of the Week is a characteristic on Heavy Consequence breaking down the highest steel and onerous rock tracks you might want to hear each Friday. This week the highest spot goes to “Blood Blind” by Cannibal Corpse.
Cannibal Corpse are fairly probably the definitive dying steel band — and one of many longest operating. Corpsegrinder and firm simply maintain churning out mucky OSDM as in the event that they’re perpetually caught in 1993, binging off a bottomless VHS horror assortment to encourage extra anthems of disgust.
In line with drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz, the band’s new single “Blood Blind” is about “mass mutilations to reset the human race in a genocide that was embraced by the plenty.” Excessive for some, par for Cannibal Corpse, whose morbid creativeness is aware of no bounds. Lowdown, bruising dying steel is admittedly the one approach to talk such lyrical content material, with downtuned guitars and pummeling drums making a gnarled mattress for Corpsegrinder’s gutturals.
Baroness – “Final Phrase”
Baroness exist in a cross-section of prog, sludge, and post-hardcore that’s particular to solely them. Briefly, no person actually appears like Baroness. “Final Phrase” is a track that solely they might pull off, with a busy six-minute association that includes dense guitar work — a few of the most complicated we’ve heard from the band to this point — and an elevated emphasis on twin vocals. It’s an intriguing introduction to the group’s first non-color themed album, Stone.
Dethklok – “Aortic Desecration”
The return of Metalocalypse and Dethklok makes our heavy steel hearts swell. Becoming, then, that the fictional band’s new track — its first in 10 years — is named “Aortic Desecration.” With the present’s mastermind Brendon Small backstage, Dethklok’s music has all the time been, nicely… method higher than it has any proper to be. This isn’t novelty heavy steel parody. Somewhat, songs like “Aortic Desecration” are proof of Small’s ardour for the style and steel tradition, as he’s made Dethklok a viable dying steel recording undertaking unto itself — even when we’ll all the time image it being performed by Nathan Explosion and the gang.
Jag Panzer – “Certain as One”
Jag Panzer are finest identified for his or her 1984 debut album Ample Destruction, a cult basic of US energy steel. The band has continued to drop albums and function on-and-off within the many years since, with a brand new album, The Hallowed, out in the present day. “We are going to final by the frost!” shouts singer Harry Conklin on the opening observe “Certain as One.” That lyric might be a rallying cry for Jag Panzer, who seem unfazed by the passage of time and the shifting traits of heavy steel. This track appears like ’84 in the easiest way.
