‘No Anchor’ released ‘The Golden Bridge’ on the 26th of November.
Instead of going out, buying an electric guitar then using effects to make it sound like a bass guitar, ‘No Anchor’ have forgone that and instead have 2 bassists in their band, no electric guitarist needed.
‘Loose Gravel’ plays off gritty, strained vocals against groove-filled guitars that descend into chaos at the 3 minute mark.
‘Oh Kill’ is an absolute nugget of a track. Hard out, straight to the point all the while throwing in some pretty clever insightful lyrics.
‘Slabs’ is a perfected slow-build track, each riff gets louder alternating with an extra drum beat or cymbal smash till you are getting absolutely pulverized.
If this is a case that more sludge metal bands should just use bass guitars, I’m sold.
