New Band To Burn One To - Matterhorn

As Also seen on The Soda Shop
These guys were featured a few days ago. There was a mis communication between Reg and myself. The first article can be viewed HERE. I liked these guys enough that I decided to keep my article and give them a little more time in the spotlight. Reg has his version, here's mine.

The wilds of Colorado brought forth the three men of Matterhorn. Daniel Harvey, Jeremy Grobsmith and Aaron Retka have played together for a decade, first in the tech-violence quartet The Great Redneck Hope, whose two full-lengths remain required listening for the genre. Now, as Matterhorn, they've condensed into a thundering instrumental three-piece, relying on low-grade musical telepathy and a collective half-century of musical experience. Matterhorn's debut release, Vol. 1. The world began without man ... is the first part of a diptych of theme albums, Vol. 1. providing a bleak and scientifically plausible series of events that rinse life from the Earth. (Vol. 2 will pick up where Vol. 1 leaves off.) Over the course of the album, Matterhorn provides a auditory tour of the end of man, alternately blistering and mild, bombastic and stark. This, along with their explosive live show, should do well in helping secure their legacy.
These guys will have a must have album in the genre in 2011. If you're a fan of bands such as Converge, Baroness, Mastodon, Isis, Pelican, Russian Circles, High On Fire or Eyehategod, you won't want to miss these guys. Their song on Myspace is epic, fast, heavy and bone crushing. Please don't listen late at night or around the young and elderly. The music whips you up into a frenzy, an instant mosh if you will. You're bound to hurt the weak. I'm not even going to mention the track on Facebook. Just don't say I didn't warn you.
