Exclusive Full Album Stream: Hectorina’s Muck
Muck, the fourth full-length from North Carolina’s Hectorina. This album is at once insanely heavy and not the least bit heavy at all. “What the hell does that mean?” you ask. Well…
Hectorina’s music isn’t even remotely metal — they’ve been compared to bands like Radiohead, Sunny Day Real Estate, and Spoon — and yet Muck feels more visceral and raw than than most of the metal albums we get pitched. Maybe that’s because the band wrote the album during the vicious, heartbreaking 2016 election cycle; they say that “Muck explores repetition, despondence, and trying to find peace of mind in this murky modern America,” and the record’s entire vibe certainly feels reflective of our current political state. So, like we said: Muck may not have anyone screaming about death and destruction, but it’s still heavier than Hell. We highly recommend it!
MetalSucks is proud to debut Hectorina’s Muck for your listening pleasure below! The album is out TODAY, and can be purchased here. The band also has a whole buncha live dates lined up for the summer; you can get those at the bottom of this post!!!
