Murder By Death - "True Dark"

There aren't too many roots artists that can open for a band like Clutch, which is how I first discovered Murder By Death. I was blown away seeing a band with a stand-up bass win over metal fans, and their new single, "True Dark," shows why. The song has this intense, heavy groove throughout. It's equal parts menace and seduction. And then the chorus kicks in, which could become embedded in your skull for years to come, so be warned. It's a song heavy enough for hard rockers, catchy enough for the more mainstream neo-folk fans, and great enough for the rest of us.

You can listen to "True Dark" below. The new album from Murder By Death, The Other Shore, will be out August 24 on Bloodshot Records. The album is being described as a "space-western about a ravaged Earth." The album can be pre-ordered here. For more on Murder By Death, check out their website.
