MetalSucks’ Least-Sucky Songs of the Week
It was Edsel Dope who once proclaimed “Everything sucks.” Which is ironic, because Dope sucks.
But these songs don’t!
August Burns Red, “Extinct by Instinct (Reprise)”
A heavy track gets mellowed the fuck out.
Fucked Up, “Year of the Horse – Act One”
A 19-minute song with cello, acoustic guitar and synths in addition to the band’s usual metal-infused hardcore maelstrom, dedicated to Power Trip’s Riley Gale and Iron Age’s Wade Allison.
Greta Van Fleet, “Heat Above”
It might give you heat below. (In your genitals, we mean (in case that wasn’t clear).)
Melvins, “1 Fuck You”
Two can be as fucked as one (if you don’t have this song).
Som, “Awake // Sedate”
Current and former members of Constants, Junius and Caspian unite in this doom-pop outfit.
