Taste The Sin by Black Tusk
Released: May 2010
Label: Relapse Records
Savannah, Ga., is a hotbed for sludge. There's Baroness, Damad, Kylesa and, of course, Black Tusk. On Taste the Sin the group mirrors its fellow Georgians in the way it produces heavy music that is both brutal and expansive. The track "Twist the Knife" is a perfect example. It contains a mix of vicious breakdowns, crust/thrash chaos and technical alacrity. At the same time, Black Tusk never allows these elements to shroud the hardcore muscularity pushing the grooves relentlessly forward. When all is said and done, Black Tusk is a bunch of lunkheads making surly and aggressive music.
