Black Tusk's 2010 release Taste The Sin is the band's third full-length studio outing (if you count The Fallen Kingdom, that is) and something of a breakthrough album in terms of popularity.

Sharing the Savannah Virgina hometown with Kylesa and Baroness, as well as artwork duties from John Baizely who is in Baroness and has also painted for Kylesa, it would seem that the marketing for this sludge and hardcore punk influenced trio is perfectly set up to recommend them to fans of Baroness and Kylesa (and by extension Mastodon.)

Black Tusk's sound is much less psychedelic/prog influenced than the aforementioned bands; a lot more dirty, low-fi and punk feeling, delivering that pure rock and roll attitude through fast and hammering songs with a sort of grimy and sweaty production sound. The band themselves have been known to use the term `Swamp Metal,' to describe their sound.

The album itself is all about attitude, delivering buzzing bass tones with slapping drums and noisy feedback-mess mixed with expertly handled big grooves and heavy riffs. The kind of songs where you can actually feel the musician's fingers on the strings, and the power in the drummer's shoulders as the hammers the toms.

Highlights include the speedy `The Way Of Horse And Bow,' the crunchy and groove filled `Snake Charmer,' as well as lead single `Red Eyes, Black Skies.'

Overall, Taste The Sin is a solid and enjoyable album from Black Fang. There is a lot to like on this particular album, in terms of energetic and heavy material and they are certainly worth checking out as a band if you like this type of music, dirty and sludgy as it is.

This was a record recommended buy amazon for me naturaly not to be a complete consumer tool i researched the record i.e. i went on youtube listened to a load of it and made a choice. I do not regret buying it at all but... for god sake check out baroness's blue record, its why these guys where recomended to me (NB John Blaize of baroness did the art work for their album cover "blue record" and "taste the sin" artwork looks great i think).

These guys have well earned a place on my playlist, some tracks grab me buy the short and curlies and Black Tusk let me loose myself in a heavy, melodic and sometimes cacophonic sound. I'm not a musician so i have no insight into any technical aspects of this record, but i like to think i appreciate things for the creativity that went into them. Don't expect to be blown over straight away Black Tusk are good however i can see they still have a long way to go, but then again i could just be spoiled discovering new (to me) bands recently has been rather fruitfull.

I don't like soup. I don't like people who are 'sticks in the mud' I don't
like getting stuck in swamps. Swamp Rock/metal? what might that be then....??

Apart from Black Mountain's third record, this is the only other record
I've bought off here in recent weeks. I was trawling around for new material and having listened to a vast number of bands I'd never heard before....Black Tusk
hit something inside me,just like BM did. So what did Black Tusk do for me?

Having previously heard Machine Head and Pantera - who are now world famous bands and many albums old... But stop, why would I even refer to those bands right at the start? I ask myself the same question. I think they will be
that good in a few records time, if they are allowed to evolve.

This is raw, intense, in your face, chaotic, demanding, brash, arrogant, we know what and who we are, take us how you find us - or get lost, kind of listening experience. Although, even after that, there's still other attribute this had, that blew me away.

We all know about punk. Wether you still listen to the Ramones, Pistols or The
Clash, is up to you. The media has a certain phrase that is over used, which
goes like this: 'Music with Attitude'. This, for me, has such a kick-ass attitude, it's what drew me in, and with every subsequent play the listening experience never falters, wavers or diminishes.

Another thing I like about this record, this being the first time i've ever
heard the band. Simplicity. Not sure which song Phil Anselmo says it, but he
sings, 'you can't be something you're not'.
