Happy New Year! Wonder if anyone will be sufficiently conscious this morning (or all day, for that matter) to read us? Will these words exist if no one reads them? Does a sound exist if no one hears it? Am I completely full of shit or only partially full?
I’ll leave these questions to the philosophers and forge ahead. I particularly don’t want to spend time thinking about the last question. Instead, we will roll out the next two entries on our list of the year’s most infectious extreme metal songs. For a full explanation of what we mean by “most infectious”, read this. And to see the songs we’ve named so far, click the Category link over on the right called MOST INFECTIOUS SONGS-2010.
In a nutshell, what we’re doing is listing, in no particular order, the catchiest songs from a wide range of extreme metal sub-genres — not necessarily the best metal of the year (though lots of these songs would qualify for that kind of list), but the ones that most effectively got our heads and other parts of our bodies moving, and then got stuck in our skulls on mental replay long after they ended.
Today’s two additions share a certain musical style. They feature garage-punk chords, snarling attitude, and a clarion call to mosh-pit mayhem. In a word (or two), they fucking rock. Follow along with us after the jump as we talk about Coliseum and Kvelertak . . .
