Daily Bandcamp Album – Black Tusk – Set The Dial

According to VH1, today, 11/11/11 is metal day. I don’t know how true that is but who  cares? It’s a great excuse to feature Black Tusk’s latest album Set The Dial.

Savannah’s BLACK TUSK return with Set the Dial, the brand new, Jack Endino (SOUNDGARDEN, HIGH ON FIRE, SKELETONWITCH) produced disk of high-energy hard rock. Set the Dial’s ten tracks cook like the Savannah heat, raising up their signature brand of primal, triple-vocal, chromatic madness, and tattooing it across canyon-wide grooves.

Elks are a newer band recently signed by Tee Pee Records. Their album Destined For The Sun is due out from the label on September 27th, 2011. If Portland has Red Fang then the east coast belongs to Elks. Their heavy and sludgy monstrous riffs are a force to recon with. I’m not up to date with the sludge scene so I’m not going to sit here and sugar coat it or pretend to know what I’m talking about. That said, I was fully entertained by Elks debut release. There’s 6 tracks for a total of 22 minutes. Vocals are more on line to what you’d hear on a Kylessa album. The drums are tight, fast and hardly ever slow down. The bass is big but not to prominent.
