THIS RIFF IS SERIOUSLY F*CKING DANGEROUS
I made the grave error of listening to Intronaut’s “The Literal Black Cloud” yesterday afternoon. It wasn’t a great error because it’s a bad song or anything — on the contrary, it was a grave error because I’ve had it stuck in my head ever since.
This happens to me on a pretty consistent basis, and has since we saw Intronaut with Cynic and Dysrhythmia this past summer. The entire night was lost to us and the Metal Injectioners sitting around going “Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh duh-duh-duh duh-duh-duh duh-duh…” like stoned idiots.
Which we were. But this is also a seriously fucking dangerous riff. It’s like it was designed to get stuck in your head. Do not fucking listen to it unless you are prepared to do nothing but think about this riff. ‘Cause your day is gonna be shot, dude. Maybe that’s why it’s really called “The Literal Black Cloud” — because it will follow you around wherever you go.
