WSOU Picks of the Week: Lamb of God, Superjoint, Vader
Seton Hall University’s WSOU radio is the only all-metal, all-the-time station currently broadcasting in the US, and as been a force in metal for DECADES. It’s also streamable online from anywhere in the world! Each week, the staff of WSOU shares their picks for the heaviest of the heavy, as well as the station’s charts for that week, right here on MetalSucks. Enjoy:
Lamb of God – “Culling” (Holly F.)
This is the second new song off Lamb of God’s latest release The Duke. “Culling” is a good representation of the sound fans know and love. Heavy with a groove, Randy screaming into the mic, Mark Morton and Willie Adler show off a bit with an impressive riff throughout. Lamb of God lyrics are always on their own level, but there’s something very real and relevant in this song. Combined with Chris Adler’s flavorful drumming, “Culling” is a track you’ll be playing on repeat all week.
Superjoint – “Caught Up In The Gears Of Application” (Mike C.)
Phil’s been busy this year. He put out the Scour album a few months back, filled in for Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod, and put out the first Superjoint album in 13 years. For how much time has passed between releases, it doesn’t sound like they’ve missed a step! “Caught Up In The Gears Of Application” rips just as hard as anything they’ve put out. Check out the title track below!
Vader – “Tempest” (Nick D.)
Vader keep pumping out their blend of death and thrash metal even after over thirty years. Double bass thumping, blast beats, wailing guitars, death growls, everything you’d expect. Not reinventing the wheel but still getting the job done. The Empire is out now on Nuclear Blast.
