BLACK ANVIL HATE TREES, PLANTS, BAD DYE JOBS
My favorite parts of the new Black Anvil song, “The Evil of all Roots,” have bounce. Obviously not, like, deathcore/Panteradactyl-style bounce, but, y’know, they make me wanna bob my head. In my old age, when a night of headbanging can easily lead to a chiropractor visit, I increasingly appreciate a good head-bob, y’know?
ANYWAY, the song is streaming over at Stereogum, and comes off of Black Anvil’s forthcoming Triumvirate. And I guess I haven’t been reading my press releases very carefully, ’cause that same site tells me that Triumvirate was recorded by Twisted Sister’s Mark Mendoza, which has to be one of the crazier intersections of metal history I’ve heard about in awhile. Black Anvil don’t wear corpse paint, but I can’t exactly picture Paul Delaney in pink stockings and football pads, y’know?
Triumvirate comes out September 28 on Relapse. Don’t forget that we’re streaming another song, “Scalping,” right here at MetalSucks.
