The newly released 11th Studio album Psychic Warfare with their own label Weathermaker Music by CLUTCH, ?Psychic Warfare? can only be described as “AMAZINGLY STELLAR” piece of musical history to never be forgotten. Showing other artist that it is possible to record ?in your face? driving tunes while never losing your edge and keeping it fresh. As the first note rings out the all familiar tapping of the foot begins as my ears anticipate the first words to be sung out by Neil Fallon!
With that you add the insane grove laid out by drummer Jean-Paul Gester backed by Dan Maines playing amazing bass, with the hair raising riffs of guitarist Tim Sult and all this to be produced by the mad hatter himself Machine, know your listening to CLUTCH!
“The Making of Psychic Warfare” 1,2 and 3 gives some very informed insight as to what a band must go through to produce such a great album. Normally one is left in the dark about the forthcoming of creativity, ups and down of new material but this is all laid out for the listener while adding the perspective of the producer.
It almost has a feel of being left over from the previous album and never loses a beat! It’s is essentially a road map to any band of 25 years and same four ORIGINAL members on how to keep it real. Not sacrificing your music and still deliver the hard hitting grooves and riffs one expects when listening to CLUTCH. My musical friends this album does not disappoint and should be added to any collection as I’m sure will go down as one of the greats.
?The title ?Psychic Warfare? is taken from the track, ?X-Ray Visions? states singer Neil Fallon. ?It?s a tale about an unnamed protagonist who is forced to seek refuge in a flop house motel. He is hiding from several nefarious psychic forces, the worst of which is his own sleep deprived paranoia.?
CLUTCH are: Neil Fallon- vocals, Jean-Paul Gester- drums, Tim Sult- Guitarist, Dan Maines-bassist
“It fits so well just like a left over from last album wow its amazing how they can connect the dots, like that truly a treat to the ears!
There is so much science incorporated into there music and I’m sitting here in a lab coat listening.” A fan.
