Big Business – Battlefields Forever
Gold Metal Records/Solar Flare Records – 2013/2015
Rock, Stoner, Sludge, Metal
The former duo Big Business return to the fight with their new album, which was released in 2013, Battlefields Forever. Okay, so let’s quickly explain those weird statements in that first sentence. Big Business, comprised out of Jared Warren and Coady Willis, who also play in Melvins, among others, added a third member to their band in the name of Scott Martin who also plays in 400Blows and Crom. After which they released Battlefields Forever on their side of the Atlantic pond in 2013. But it has only recently become available in the rest of the world. Although everyone could ofcourse always buy everything on the internet, French label Solar Flare Records did the right thing and put everything into motion over here in the old world. And like we already said, righteously so, cause the Seattle sludge metal formation outdid themselves with Battlefields Forever. Fast and furious on some moments, packing mighty punches and uppercut explosions, they turn into a torrid or a slow drench the next. This is no strength in numbers release, for each of the nine tracks on this album has something special to it. So, join the fight, and remember: who dares wins!
