Biography

Forget whatever you thought about Clutch. Earth Rocker crumples up the bad categories that have miscast them for years — stoner rock, post-hardcore, metal, grunge — and leaves no question about what they are: a damn good rock and roll band.
Earth Rocker is a solid, straight-up rock and roll album, exactly what the band had in mind for their tenth studio album, now that their ... Read more in Amazon's Clutch Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Committed to truth in advertising, the irrepressible Clutch hammer it home with renewed electric vigor and percussive pummel on their forthcoming PURE ROCK FURY. Harkening back to the magical, early '70s era of metal's dynamic genesis, the band - Neil Fallon (vocals), Tim Sult (guitars), Dan Maines (bass), and Jean Paul Gaster (drums) - lays down thunderous drums/bass/rhythm guitar bedrock, relentlessly textured by hauntingly phrased, guttural vocals and guitar-hero styled leads. On this, their fourth full-length album, the Harpers Ferry, West Virginia-based quartet has creatively acknowledged the importance of the live performance in their music by incorporating complete concert tracks and snippets from a recent Washington, D.C. date into the mix.

Amazon.com

The 13 tracks of shrieking, strangulated fuzz guitar and heavy riffing found on Pure Rock Fury are as vital as the title demands. Think Led Zeppelin II run through the monolithic speaker-stacks of desert-rock innovators Kyuss. That Pure Rock Fury is an instant heavy-music landmark is certainly due in part to special guests guitarist Scott Weinrich of stoner-rock heavy hitters Spirit Caravan and guitar mystics Sixty Watt Shaman. But when Clutch hit their stride, they clearly don't need any help. Witness the snatches of live performance that culminate in the staggering, frenzied, and shrieking "Spacegrass." Pure Rock Fury elevates Clutch to the stoner-rock elite. --Louis Pattison

Customer Reviews

Most of the album is hard rocking and fast paced.
MadCat
The 2nd self-titled was much better, there was a stronger direction and more unique style.
rosario
I liked it initially but it took a few more listens to realize just how GOOD it really is.

Pure Rock Fury is Clutch's most straight ahead onslaught of a release since 1991's Pitchfork or 1992's Passive Restraints. It truly is furious, not to mention being pure rock. The first noise you hear is a long screech, quickly evolving into a barrage of guitar, bass, and drums the likes of which have previously not been heard on any Clutch album. "American Sleep" truly is a great opener for the album, and it's an indication of the fury and genius to come.
First, I'd like to address something an earlier reviewer said about the mixing. Yes, it is true that they were going for a "fuzzier" sound on this album, but the static and popping that you hear is not an error in the production or mixing; in order to optimal audio performance from this album, you should set your equalizer to "flat," or somewhere close to it. There should be no more fuzziness than was intended.
Anyway, as for the actual album: It is a masterpiece. Clutch has never made a bad album; in fact, Clutch has never made an album that would receive less than four stars, in my book. Still, the argument can be made that this is their best yet (although I would be hard-pressed to dub any one of them definitively "the best"). As I said, it is their most straight up rock album in a long time (perhaps ever), and it just flat out rocks.
There are no bad songs here. Some rock in different ways. For instance, "American Sleep" and "Pure Rock Fury" are balls to the wall rock songs, whereas "Open up the Border" and "Drink to the Dead" are slower-paced, groove-oriented jams.

I've been a huge fan of Clutch for quite a while so my opinion is slightly jaded but .... for the love of Gawwwwd man they ROCK!

Clutch really is a very unique band and although they do revive that 70's hard rock sound it's really and truly something to behold. To me "Pure Rock Fury" is the second coming of Clutch. Their 1st album, "Transnational Speedway" was crunchier and had a big impact on me. The 2nd self-titled was much better, there was a stronger direction and more unique style. The 3rd, "Elephant Riders" was a large departure from the Clutch I knew. Singing, what the hell? It worked and overall "Elephant Riders" is a solid offering but I feel it was a growing pain. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but they didn't seem as surefooted as usual. but...

"Pure Rock Fury" is altogether an entirely different monster, and I do mean monster. The first guitar line kind of sums up the whole album, it's loud, crunchy, precise, and full of energy. "American Sleep" is a solid jam, the musicianship is great as always and Neil seems a bit more solid on the vox.

The second track is definitely the star, a massive assault full hendrix soaked guitar riffs, insane drum fills, tight sure footed bass work, and insane barking vocals full of wit and humor. It's an anthem, really, calling upon those troopers of the CLUTCH army ready to stomp around the pit in their own unique fashion.

From this point the album continues in solid fashion, a bunch of sweet cap'n crunchy hard rock romps, "Open up the Border", "Immortal". Some nice drawn out jams with lots o' rump shaking bass lines, "Red Horse Rainbows" and double geetarr riffage, "Brazenhead".

Clutch is one of those bands with one heck of a unique sound that has been around for quite some time yet hardly gets the recognition they deserve (for other examples check out bands like Biohazard, Fantomas, and Corrosion of Conformity), but continues to make uncompromising music. "Pure Rock Fury" is no exception, it's laid back releaxed yet hyper sound is some of the most unique rock to ever grace my ears. "Careful With That Mic" is laugh out loud hilarious thanks to the lyrical content (where some unnamed bands are pretty much laughed at for "trying to act all urban", I think I could name a few) and insane vocal range. "American Sleep", "Immortal", "Drink to the Dead", and the looney closing live track "Spacegrass" are all great songs and nicely round the album out well, but the production seems rather shoddy on some tracks and takes the greatness away from the otherwise fantastic songs. Forget bands like System of a Down, Linkin Park, and Disturbed who everyone seems to think are so unique and check out Clutch's "Pure Rock Fury" and their even greater older material for a listening experience you won't soon forget.

I downloaded this album after hearing "Careful With That Mic" on the radio not quite knowing what to expect. That song sounded like nothing I had ever heard before, and I was pleased to discover that the album contained more of the same. "Pure Rock Fury" made me an instant Clutch fan, as I found Clutch to be doubtless the most unique heavy band I had ever heard. While "Pure Rock Fury" is an extremely innovative album, it also contains many elements of the more traditional metal that I enjoy. Clutch to me sound almost like a weirded-out version of Corrosion of Conformity. This album can rock out, as on the title track, or lay the grooves on heavy, as on "Red Horse Rainbow" and "Open up the Border." There are enough diverse sounds on this album to keep it from ever getting monotonous, as jams mix with straight-ahead rock numbers to give "Pure Rock Fury" a sound all its own. Neil Fallon's throaty vocals also contribute to the album's distinctive sound. And all the while, the band keeps you thinking with some truly bizarre lyrics. However, the fuzzy quitar and bass lines and infectious riffing are to me the highlight of the disc, especially on "American Sleep" and "Brazenhead"
