With the impending release of GODHUNTER vs. DESTROYER OF LIGHT: Endsville closing in, now less than two weeks away, the underground scene champs at No Clean Singing have premiered a brand new track from each act in a brutalizing double-header.
One of the most psychedelic bottom-dredgers of GODHUNTER‘s platter of Endsville, “Dull Knives, Weak Handshakes” is a fuzz-laden, tectonic crusher which sees the band’s more stoner/doom metal influences taking over the crusty edge much of the band’s material is generally soaked with. And while DESTROYER OF LIGHT bears more of the same stoner/doom influences in their overall body of works, their LP-closing “Valley Of The Dead” surges with more of a morose and eventually scathing vibe than a good portion of their platter. Combined, the two tracks offer vast insight into what the mighty Endsville release encapsulates. Offers No Clean Singing in part, in the proficiently delivered write-up adjoining the two new tracks, “a lot of life for a lot of people is no damned good, and to find music that both powerfully captures its ugliness and despair and yet somehow takes you away from all that at the same time, that’s a gift, and both these bands have it. You can move to these songs (you probably won’t have any choice), and you can lose yourself in them, too.”
