Hey Shred Heads!

Today I want to introduce you metal maniacs to SUBSTRATUM from Seattle, WA. These warriors of the faith keep it classy with their 2015 Demo. Featuring three solid tracks of pulse pounding metal! “Last Voyage” is a fun tune with radical vocals and riffs that are ballsier than Satan himself. “Who am I” starts off with a rad acoustic blue grass/folk intro followed by blues based ballsy riffage that hits the balls and gets you ballin. Finally “By Any Means” clocks in at over six minutes long but it sure as hell doesn’t feel like it. This one is the cream of the crop. When I first listened to these three songs I really didn’t know what to expect. Honestly the compositions kept me guessing where they were going to go as far as song structure went. Which was a pleasant surprise and made me enjoy these songs even more. One thing in common will all three songs is the attitude. You can feel it seeping out of the speakers. Just oozing with THE TUDE, all greasy like. And I love it. The vocals are raspy. Attitude. The Guitar riffs are heavy. Attitude. The bass is chunkier than chunk. Attitude. The Drums hitting and not quitting. Attitude. What did I just say. ATTITUDE MOTHER FUCKER! The production level of these recordings is pretty radical. Whoever recorded these tunes knew what they were doing. Everything is mixed better than a whiskey bourbon whipping stool.

Amy Lee Carlson on vocals absolutely kills it! Jonny and Alex unleash a flurry of riffs and fist pumping speed. While Lane on bass guitar and Eric on drums come charging in like tanks pummeling fools on Metal Slug. This band has a special mix that will sure to take them the distance to attain heavy metal glory. They take familiar elements from some our favorite classic heavy metal bands and mix them into a brew all their own. I don’t really want to compare these shredders to another band since I don’t think it would do them justice. Really, these metal freaks are fukkin good.
