This is my 200th blog post! Today's soundtrack is Tallah: No One Should Read This. Mike Portnoy's (my drumming idol) son, Max Portnoy, is the drummer for Tallah. The freshest metal I've heard in years. They call their genre "nu-core" and it's such an apt description. It's like Slipknot and Korn and Katelepsy and Spawn of Possession all rolled into one. Like seriously, proper grindcore vocals, nu-metal singing, blast beats, chuggy drop-tuned guitars, glitch synths, sweep picking...IT'S ALL HERE. And these guys are young. Looks like the next generation is finally picking up the torch. It's been ages since I've been this excited about a new band.
My voice hurts and my fingers are sore, but I blasted out all the recording and mixing for my new metal album. Just waiting for the artwork to be completed before I release it. Stay tuned!
*UPDATE: The album is now available! Check it out here!
