Listen to No Spill Blood Take the ‘Harsh Route’
Their album 'Heavy Electricity' comes out March 10
Dublin trio No Spill Blood takes their name from the same H.G. Wells passage as Devo, and their press release even describes their shared love of “smarmy synths.” That’s about where the similarities end between the two. In their most recent release from their upcoming LP Heavy Electricity, the metal vets (featuring members of Elk and Adebisi Shank) kick the doors down with “Harsh Route.” John Carpenter-like buzzsaw synths grind over the thick guitars, an appropriate backdrop for bassist/singer Matt Hedigan’s guttural howl. The real climax comes in four and a half minutes in, where the lads do a startlingly good Metallica impersonation and tear the melody to shreds.
