Tend No Wounds by Black Tusk
Released: Jul 2013
Label: Relapse Records
Maybe the brawniest of Savannah, Georgia's many sludge bands, Black Tusk start songs real good. A few of this EP's six grab right off the bat: jazzy sourness in "The Weak and the Wise"; spare drums into low-slung downtuned leads in "Truth Untold"; obsessively repeated riff figure in "In Days of Woe." Too often, though, the intros devolve into interchangeably mucky-shouty hardcore that loses the plot until it randomly ends. Down-the-well Killing Joke yowling distinguishes "Internal/Eternal" some. But usually, two-minute instrumentals like opener "A Cold Embrace" seem like Black Tusk's best bet.
