New Orleans' Guts Club are the rare kind of band that both metalheads and indie rock fans can appreciate equally. Their music is loud and brutal at times, but it also has this beautiful and artistic quality. Their latest single, "The Gun Collector," is a ten minute epic that starts off with some of the most intense droning you've ever heard. You're basically a quarter of the way through the song before the guitar start to do anything else, but that's kind of perfect, in a way. The song just plods and plods through with this drone, drums, and vocals without you wanting anything else. It slowly builds from this, but so slowly that you barely even notice the song pick up. I don't know many bands that could pull this off, but most bands aren't Guts Club.
