Exclusive Premiere: White Widows, “El Marrano”
What happens when members of Primitive Weapons, The Destro, Goes Cube and Grudges get together to form a new band in the whiskey and beer-infested bowels of Brooklyn metal hotspot Saint Vitus Bar? Aside from the requisite drunken arguments about which Pantera album is the best, what happens is White Widows, a band that blends NYC-style metallic hardcore and southern sludge in all the right ways. Never before have power groove, sludge and hardcore-style vocals meshed so well together; it’s like if Vinnie Paul sat in with Crowbar and asked Jacob Bannon to get up on stage and sing.
The band’s self-titled debut comes out via Sacrament Musicon March 1st, but you can hear the album’s second track, “El Marrano,” right now. Brendan Garone from Incendiary contributes guest vocals. Stream it below and see what you think.
