‘Judd Madden’ released ‘Artesian’ on November the 3rd, 2012.
Judd has focused much of his talent and time on water and has now turned his hand to the very opposite as a source of inspiration, drought.
‘Heatwaves Quiver and Dance’ walks you through rumbling bass guitars and drums to soaring guitar solos chucking in some nice sludgier riffs to finish the track.
Judd Madden may be a one-man band but this seems to be a conscious thought in the writing process as layers of instruments are stacked upon each other to create these colossal songs.
‘Sunbeams Each a Lance’ starts by generating momentum then ever so slightly changes an element and continues in that direction. It also features some nice groove heavy bass guitar as everything is broken down at the 4 minute mark. After 6 minutes it becomes a whole new beast, dragging every riff out and finally collapses in on itself, dying out with feedback.
This album does what all Judd Madden albums do and that is to slowly but purposefully demolish you.
