Pentagram Spreads Evil Over New Orleans

People turned out in droves to see the show with so many amazing bands on the bill. If they couldn’t afford to get in, they would hang outside and listen because it was just too good to miss completely. The slow, swampy, southern metal was complimented so well by the high humidity and heat of the night. Beer flowed (everywhere) and ears became numb as each of four bands took turns breaking amps.

Black Tusk Posts Track By Track Breakdown

Savannah, GA's Black Task is currently streaming the new album "Taste The Sin" online at this location. The band has now posted a full track-by-track breakdown online through Decibel Magazine. The breakdown can be read below.

Song I: Embrace the Madness: (This song is about) if you hear this music or this sound and its making you go crazy, and makes you go mad from the sound. That’s how this one goes, its making your ears bleed, and talks about the thunder, a big storm rolling in.

Song II: The Snake Charmer: This is talking about the Taste the Sin theme. I wouldn’t say it’s the title track, but it’s most related to the artwork for sure. It’s talking about playing with the deadly snakes and you want to think you can tame the snake, which is a representation of any kind of evil, but eventually you know you’re going to get bit by it.

Song III: Red Eyes, Black Skies: Instrumentally, this one is full-force all the way through. This one is about being surrounded by this creature and all you can see is its eyes glaring in the distance and it’s almost like your running for your life but at the same time knowing you’re not going to make it. This song is evil and galloping through the whole thing.
