Eagle-eye devourerers of Decibel will likely recall my review of Montreal's The Great Sabatini's latest album, Matterhorn in a recent issue. In reviewing their new record, I made reference to Pig Destroyer, Kyuss, Blind and Deliverance-era Corrosion of Conformity and described the proceedings thusly: "...hails from further out in left-field with more peaks and valleys than the heads-down-tits-up sludgy rock they fire at you from the stage...these dudes have a 90s alt-rock edge grinding against their love affair with riffs that crash bolts of lightning into stacks of Orange amps in delivering a rumbling calling card of hellacious noise." Let me know if that makes sense to anyone other than the gremlins living in my head. Well, not only are the lads going on tour as of tomorrow, but they asked me to ask you if you're interested in downloading Matterhorn's free "third side," entitled The Royal We? If so, go to their bandcamp page and get click happy. If not, at least go check 'em out live, because that's where they rule hardest. Tour dates below.
