We’re nearing the midpoint of 2021, and I had to pay homage to my absolute favorite album so far, STEEL BEARING HAND‘s Slay In Hell. It’s forty minutes of blackened thrash death fun, and every song has a CHANGE at the “golden ratio” point that gets me riled every listen.

Their hocus-pocus song arrangements are especially prevalent on “‘Til Death & Beyond” where this incredible breakdown emerges from nowhere and leads to a full-on butt dance for 2 minutes. I captured 45 seconds of it above.

Listen for yourself! (Bandcamp)

Inspiration: Steel Bearing Hand, Lil Nas X “Montero” (a capella video), Andrew WK, summertime, and the Power Of The Peach™
