TUSKS – Doom-metal from Belfast
What you may need to know…
01. Emerging from a rich scene for various amounts of musical heft, TUSKS fall somewhere between Sabbathesque riff worship and spiky punk noisemaking.
02. The band’s debut album Embers, released in August of last year, on Larne-based metal label Freak Flag Recordings.
03. Streaming above in its entirety, it’s available for download, and on limited 12″ green/”beer” vinyl.
VERDICT: TUSKS have a lash off doom-metal’s tropes and rituals without directly aping same, adding a bit of piss and vinegar to proceedings.
