BLACK TUSK

TEND NO WOUNDS

2013

 

NEW TUSK

 

Black Tusk has that sound that is so heavy you can almost feel it sticking to your teeth. Led by the stoned instrumental ‘A Cold Embrace’ the record moshes into ‘Enemy of Reason’ and ‘The Weak and the Wise’ and it’s all very much like what we’ve heard from these Georgia Mettalers before. Not that there’s anything wrong with sounding the same as Black Tusk was always a band that along with the likes of Baroness looked like making metal strong again.

 

 


This release though seems stuck in a groove and it’s not until we hit the last pair ‘Truth Untold’ and our favourite ‘In Days of Woe’ that we hit a real peak built on a mighty fine and very solid groove. One for the fans and the curious. This is definitely a band you should check out.
