Editorial Reviews

The long awaited third part in a series of three incredible CLUTCH re-issues is finally HERE, and this time the band and their label (Weathermaker) have thrown in the extra special value added twist!!! "BLAST TYRANT", the classic 2004 release will be re-packaged as an epic 25 song double disc! In addition to original CLUTCH favorites like "The Mob Goes WUd", "Profits of Doom", "Weathermaker", "Cypress Grove", etc., this package contains the new 10 song bonus CD called "BASKET of EGGS".
Featuring the first NEWLY recorded Clutch music in two years,
"Basket of Eggs" is split between the extremely rare, electric, post-"Pure Rock Fury" demos (recorded in 2002, mixed in 2011) and BRAND NEW acoustic style recordings just recently captured in January 2011.

Clutch has never failed to disappoint me when I'm in the mood for some head-banging, testosterone-laden riff-rock, and this latest album is no exception. Simply put, nobody combines heaviness, musicianship, and originality like these guys, positioning them as an ideal antidote to the endless waves of emasculated whining emanating from the radio. Like every other Clutch release, Blast Tyrant is an insanely infectious, fiercely original groove monster of an album that never fails to betray the sound of a bunch of guys who love what they do. For all their technical perfection and rip-roaring heaviness, that's really what makes Clutch such a great band: they never sound like they were sentenced to play music, or like they write songs to exorcise personal demons or any other such nonsense. They just churn out album after album of their own brand of uncompromising sonic stomp, and for that we should be thankful.

While it's not quite as ambitious or wide-ranging as its predecessor, Pure Rock Fury, this album still manages to surpass its predecessor thanks to its supremely focused songwriting and tight ensemble playing. Tim Sult's guitar playing has become even funkier than before, Jean-Paul Gaster's drumming jazzier, and Dan Maines's basslines even more thunderous. Towering over everything are the massive, gravelly vocals of the one and only Neil Fallon, whose frightening yowl is surely among the most distinctive voices in all of heavy music. With Neil in front, Blast Tyrant always hits hard, even during the acoustic-tinged tracks Regulator and Ghost and the quirky closing jam Wysiwyg. Unfortunately, Clutch don't seem to get mentioned all that often when the discussion turns to the world's best heavy bands, but they should be, dammit. Blast Tyrant is easily among the best albums of the year. Period.

Been a clutch fan since first seein them locally 15 years ago. The live performance was something I've never experienced before in my 200 some odd concerts. It honestly was rapture. The cd's started filling my shelf immediately. Then after Elephant Riders I kinda eased up on the music scene. But then a few months ago I decided to check up on what Clutch had been making. I bought Exodus and Blast Tyrant. HOLY CRAP!

This band is beyond phenomenal. Blast Tyrant may be the best album I've ever experienced...ditto Exodus(but thats for another review). Clutch may be the greatest band ever and yet the least recognized as great...and I go back to the early 70's with my listening.

What can I say about this album. It's incredible...It's powerful...It's cosmic...It's funky...It's simply unbelievable pure hard rock from the soul.

Anyone who doesn't know Clutch but is considering them...stop! Go Buy this NOW! Those who know Clutch...DAMN!!!

It kicks off with a blast of standard classic sounding Clutch with Mercury. Hard...Attacking...In your face.

Then it transforms into a nice driven wah'd out ominous Profits of Doom. Simply an excellent song with so much power mixed in with creeping riffs its scary.

The Mob Goes wild is a nice third. Crunchy Punchy song with an excellent chorus. Some words are goofy(and political, who cares) but thats a clutch standard. Great Chorus...sick.

Cypress Grove is just a classic. Old sound Clutch. Scary crazy lyrics about evil women. The setup just births another perfect chorus that rips you out of your seat and throws you across the room. Holy Diver where you at? One of My favorites on the album.

Then comes Promoter...OH!!!...The words...

Anyone who says that this is not representative of Clutch is missing the point.
First, I think the slow bluesy songs are a refreshing addition to their sound and they are most definitely Clutch songs. Even their hard songs have always been blues based, if you can't hear that then you just don't know music. All they did was slow the tempo down and used acoustic guitars for a couple of songs.
Second, anyone saying that this is not as good as Clutch's past albums is also missing the point. This is by far the best album they have done since their second, self-titled album in terms of every song being high-quality (there's not a bad song on the CD) and the fact that they are trying new things like the use of Hammond organ and the blues songs. A band should try new things and expand their sound yes? Or should they just crank out the same album again and again?
Add to this that they have not sold out by softening their sound, they still jam as hard as ever and have basically gone MORE underground by signing with an indie label and doing a bizarre concept album. This is the best rock band playing right now and the only true heavy metal we have today. Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, all born again in Clutch. This CD deserves to become a classic that people will still be jamming out to in smoke filled living rooms for in 20 years.
Finally, what's with the guy who said something about "anti-christian lyrics?" Where do you get that? It's a FICTIONAL story about FICTIONAL characters. What's anti-christian about it?
