UNEARTH SIT BACK AND “WATCH IT BURN”
If “Ruination of the Lost,” the new Unearth track we debuted a couple of weeks back, got you all hot n’ bothered, then have I got some news for you: Lambgoat is now streaming another new Unearth tune, “Watch it Burn.” In a statement that accompanies the debut, vocalist Trevor Phipps notes that the song features “a melodic bridge late in the song much like some of our older material.” Unless my pot-addled brain is forgetting an obvious example from the last couple of Unearth albums, it really has been some time since the band experimented with clean vocals; I’m very curious to see if fans get into it now, or throw a total hissy-fit. I’m guessing it will be the latter, but maybe I’m not giving them enough credit.
Headbang here, and then do or do-not throw such a hissy fit in our comments section. Unearth’s latest offering, Darkness in the Light, on July 5 via Metal Blade. The band will been on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this summer along with Megadeth, Machine Head, In Flames, Trivium, Suicide Silence, All Shall Perish, Kingdom of Sorrow, Red Fang, and some other bands whose sets you can use as time for napping/drinking/beating the post-show parking lot traffic jam. Unearth pits are crazy places, so be careful out there, kids!
