Yes another edition of Heavy Prescription and the internet is flooded with news regarding the leak/official leak of the new Killswitch Engage single. The track was brilliant and might as well signal a return to form for the melodic metalcore titans. Nonetheless, i do feel that there are a lot of less popular yet truly deserving the notice. Well here are a few of those tracks that i for one believe deserve a good listen.
1. Man the Machetes
Catchiness has always been a relative feeling, but some songs just manage to inject potent quantities of it directly into the cranium. Kvelertak signed to the Norwegian label was one such band who were able to take single handedly take their brand music into infinitesimal levels of catchiness without sacrificing their hardcore roots that shine through. Now another band that has come to my attention is Man the Machetes. They are on the same label ‘Indie Recordings‘ that Kvelertak is on and seemingly so, sound musically more close to them as well. The track featured here is titled ‘Megaplask’ and quite obviously is in Norwegian.
The vibe that this track emanates will have you entranced in its melody and headbanging at the same moment. I wouldn’t call it metal by any means, but its easygoing and fun laden spirit, spurred me on to share this with you guys. Take a listen!
