I appreciate a band that remains creative without giving into the trend of overproducing their music. I can especially appreciate an up and coming band that retains influences from their rock n’ roll predecessors Sabbath, Zeppelin, and Deep Purple. Pillbuster’s new single “Hate Burn” proves that music with unpolished soul still has a beating heart.
The aggressive vocals carry a level of genuine angst I thought lost to the 90’s. Musically the song explores a mid-tempo groove with riff heavy guitar work that burrows itself in my head. Fans of Clutch, The Union Underground, and Pantera will enjoy this piece of unfettered southern metal. I sure as hell do.
