No Captains - "13th Moon"

The latest single from No Captains is metal, but doesn't sound like what you consider to be metal. The San Francisco band have released "13th Moon," which "... was inspired by classic Halloween and monster movies with their characteristic werewolves, mummies and zombies, combined with the fact that, in 2020, there were actually 13 full moons instead of 12." That definitely sounds like a metal premise, but "13th Moon" is more of a mix of bizarro metal bands like Mr. Bungle, Primus, and Helmet. Sure, it's metal, but will your standard metalhead love this? This is a slow song without being anything close to a ballad. Instead, "13th Moon" plods along with a long, drawn out blast of feedback not so gently nudging Alex Shonkoff's vocals along. 

You can listen to "13th Moon" below. Friends Like These is due out December 2. You can pre-order your copy here. For more on No Captains, check out the band's website.
