Hang the Bastard – Sex in the Seventh Circle (2014) – Track Review

hangthebastard (1)

Hang the Bastard are heavy, if you didn’t know. Their new video for ‘Sex in the Seventh Circle’ recently emerged online and no doubt exposed many more people to the brutality of dirty heavy metal. The track is taken from the forthcoming album of the same name and boy oh boy is it tasty. Meaty disgusting riff pie. Low tuned guitar’s and psych-raging video visuals make this a titular sludge metal song. The track is produced well, being clear and crisp yet not overly polished, retaining the feeling that one would experience in a live environment. With a band like Hang the Bastard you need that live environment and to be able to hear that in their studio releases makes them even better.

Prepare to get an underbite, grow a humongous beard and grow some neck muscles because though it’s 4 minutes long, it passes quick and the repeat button WILL be hit.

As an example of the album it’s not much to go on but title tracks, can either be striking or forgetful. If this is the striking track, that’s great! If this is the forgetful track, then the rest of the album is going to be one disgusting, explosive and blood fuelled musical hard on straight into the ears.

Verdict – 8/10 – Solid track from a solid group of men. Riffs, riffs, and more riffs.

Check out their video, release via Century Media Records, right here!
