BLACK TUSK
TASTE THE SIN
RELAPSE

Savannah, GA sludge metal trio Black Tusk rages with unabashed hardcore punk brevity on their 10-track release TASTE THE SIN. Abrasive vocals and razorwire riffage lead this swampy unitís cathartic charge while a bare bones no frills rhythm section sidesteps flash for bombast, dropping delectable dollops of surprisingly snappy doom metal lava and stoner rock slush. As subtle as a brick to the head and twice as potent, Black Tuskís lean and mean metallic approach shuns complexity to infiltrate craniums with a caustic and catchy blend of sinewy heaviness whose style complements and fits nicely in between fellow hometown heroes Baroness, Kylesa, and Zoroaster.
