Swamp metal reminds me of zombie films; it's slow and terrifying and still manages to overcome you no matter how fast you run. The music is intense and deceptively fast within its slow grind. Enter Black Tusk from the swamps of Savannah, Georgia, a brutal three-piece band that is as much thrash metal as it is steeped in doom. Relentless and ominous, this band sets the bar for contemporary metal with a nod to its dark past. Run. To The Deep, Oceans of Insects, and Night Terror add more to the spectacle and awe.
