Ketzer Will Need Some Dairy “When Milk Runs Dry”
Black metal can be terrifying. And when you add the word German in front of black metal, it becomes even more terrifying (mostly because German is a language that sounds angry if you don’t understand it). So here we have Ketzer, a german black/thrash metal band who’ve just released “When Milk Runs Dry,” a single off their upcoming album Starless.
Now you might think the name of the track is silly, but the reality is far from it. Think about it; have you ever felt like eating a ton of cereal only to realize you have no milk left? Fuck that. Simply the thought of running out of milk is anxiety-inducing. Imagine if there were a scene in the Saw movies where Jigsaw sets up a puzzle in which the victim had to eat their way through a giant tub of dry Cap’n Crunch. Take that “I-just-ate-glass” feeling you get on the roof of your mouth eating the stuff WITH milk and multiply it by 50. Nope. Nopenopenope.
Anyway, if you like black metal with some Metallica-style, galloping riffs mixed in, you’ll dig “When Milk Runs Dry” and you can listen to it at Decibel or below. Ketzer’s Starless drops January 29 via Metal Blade Records.
