The New Snaked Album is the Most Interesting Record You Will Hear This Week! [Feat. Hugh Myrone and Depressed Teenager]

0

Last summer we told you about Snaked, the new collaboration featuring perennial MetalSucks favorite and #softshred pioneer Myrone, DJ/producer Depressed Teenager and special guest appearances* from Paul Stanley, David Lee Roth and numerous other rock legends. From just one song we could tell how raucous, shreddy and booty-shakin’ awesome the results were going to be once Snaked got around to recording and releasing a full-length album.

And now it has happened. Year of the Snake is finally here! There is a song on the album called “Mosh Booty,” which is all the information you should need to convince you it’s worth giving the album a shot.

But here’s some more anyway: it’s fantastic, even better than we expected. Sure, it doesn’t seem very likely that classic metal, late ’80s/ early ’90s shred and block rockin’ beats would go so well together, but hot damn, it fucking works. If you listen to Year of the Snake and don’t feel compelled to headbang and/or dance, you’re either a) a liar, b) an idiot, or c) both. It’s certainly one of the most unique recordings you’ll hear, if nothing else. So get with it: Year of the Snake can be streamed below and bought via Bandcamp.
