Have you been thinking “not enough riffs about this year.” May I introduce you to Dead Now and their absolute onslaught of churning, boiling noise?
Torche – Restarter
Bring on the boom. Torche are back. Repeat. Torche. Are. Back. What of Restarter? Well, it’s heavy – monstrously heavy, which is never a bad thing. It’s as if Torche have decided they want to crush the listener; compacting their body beneath a press constructed entirely out of hammering riffage.
Tilts – Cuatro Hombres
Tilts (big pinball fans) have been kicking around for a few years, having funded their first album (Self-Titled) through a Kickstarter campaign; decided to repeat this success with their second effort, Cuatro Hombres (Four Men) achieving well over what they needed – by $2,500 – top work guys! Cuatro Hombres is 10 tracks of bursting, vibrant, raucous, beer-can-smashing rock ‘n roll.
