Swiss band Preamp Disaster released their new album By The Edges earlier this month and the main single from it is this giant, swinging slab of heavy, metallic post-rock – ‘Above The Bloodline‘.
The song is one of those tracks that builds and builds in intensity and density across three minutes before the dynamics splinter and take a deep breath before the vocals enter the fray. It works exceptionally well. It’s hard and heavy, with something of a stoner rock swing and lumbering hypnosis. The drums hit like Tool and the guitars twist and turn like Isis and Pelican.
