Clutch – Psychic Warfare


Clutch – Psychic Warfare
Weatherman – 2015
Rock, Hard, Stoner
Rated: *****

Two years ago their tenth album Earth Rocker made it all the way to the second place in the Stoner HiVe Top 20 Countdown of 2013. Which was yet another reason with which Clutch, who have been around since 1991, proved to be an always evolving band eager to progress. This time around however the guys seem content or even keen on deepening the sound they provided us with on that much celebrated album Earth Rocker. Their eleventh album is called Psychic Warfare and on it we hear even swampier stoner, intense blues influences and straight trucking hardrock filled with grimy guitar solos and an angry vocalist howling his truth at us. Sometimes a bit funkier and sometimes air dry and sun baked. Most impressive is probably the way they managed to make all that more enigmatic, stirring and cinematic. Songs like Our Lady Of Electric Light are meant to be used in movies, you can just see the landscape pass by and the Hateful Eight wandering off into the sunset. But don’t worry, there’s no atmospheric nonsense here; just a savage wasteland full of grit teeth and bloodshot eyes!
