A new discovery for me, Canadian rockers Black Mountain and their new single from upcoming album "Destroyer".
I stumbled across this on a new music playlist, and it immediately stood out for the unique sound the band were creating. The riffs and rhythms said 1980s metal, but the tone sound and vocal style said alternative rock. Equal parts Dinosaur Jr. and NWOBHM, I love this combination, something I've not heard done effectively as here.
From the way the sound opens up into the chorus, to the keyboard lead lines, to the full Iron Maiden style dual lead around the 3 minute mark this instantly shot onto my list of the best new music I'd heard in a while. Looking forward to the new album after this.
"Drown in the future shade, ain't no-one going to save you tonight..."
