Wednesday Spotlight: Mountain Man
There's something about the last year that has grappled me back into my "heavy" diet I weened off of some years back. With bands like Code Orange Kids, MilanKu and Full of Hell entering my life - I've definitely enjoyed the more sinister, unnerving and angrier side of music in 2012. Then there's Mountain Man's upcoming record. Two is unforgiving. From the opening beat down of "Home is a concept" to the closing exhaustion of "Take out the sun" (one of the best tracks of 2012), Mountain Man stake a claim in this decade's competition of tearing down walls and walls of inner ear structures. It's angry, violent and shows little to no remorse - everything a good hardcore record should be. It doesn't sound "bro" or cheap. It doesn't sound overly crafted and planned out. It's natural and decimating to the senses. Somewhere between the onslaught of The Chariot's debut and the aggression of Trash Talk's aura lies Two and it's ability to wake more than a few people up to an unprocessed feeling of anguish. You can check out a new track here. You can hear "Take out the sun" in the replies.

This is gonna be so sick. Glad to see this style of aggressive and unforgiving hardcore making a huge comeback.

Still holding out for new dangers, but this band satiates me for the time being.
