Lord Dying: Poisoned Altars

From Revolver:
“Fusing Crowbar’s booming guitar tone and gruff vocal delivery with High on Fire’s relentless chug and the occasional Pantera groove, Oregon brain-blasters Lord Dying deliver a severe riff thunderstorm on their second album, the follow-up to 2013’s heralded Summon the Faithless. Led by vocalist-guitarist Erik Olson, who saws off head-caving licks like a younger, more hessian Tad Doyle, the band navigates a thick, sludgy underworld where trauma comes in two forms—bodily and psychic— and churning, pit-starting metal is the law. Recorded by Toxic Holocaust mastermind Joel Grind and featuring a guest shot from Red Fang vocalist Aaron Beam on the aptly named “An Open Sore,” Poisoned Altars is a full-blown face-ripper.”
Poisoned Altars is out now via Relapse; check out “An Open Sore” below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
