Black Tusk – Tend No Wounds EP
Relapse Records
★★★★ (out of 5 stars)

Savannah’s Black Tusk is one of the more purely visceral bands of the Georgia metal vanguard. With a raging stoner sludge sound that has a bracing hardcore punk edge, they’ve kept it close to the bone and back to dirty basics. This impressive EP sports a pronounced new rock approach that packs tons of swampy Southern menace. Rather than a headlong blitz, this record’s attack is much more in the pocket, and it’s some pretty tough shit. And even with a famous multi-vocalist onslaught, the testament to how complete a band they are is that two of the best tracks (“A Cold Embrace” and “In Days of Woe”) are instrumental.
