The other day someone asked me if I’m familiar with Clutch, and I was like: HAHAHA. Here’s their new song from their upcoming album Earth Rocker which is set to be released on March 19th. “Crucial Velocity” juxtaposes darkly tinged riffs with sing-along chorus and, most of all, it grooves like hell. The futuristic themes known from the outfit’s previous albums come back in full force. Neil Fallon is all about his “rocket 88″ that’s “fastest in the land” making a nice allegory to the great power of imagination. “Unpredictable times call for the reliable friend” after all.

That might be one of the coolest album covers I've seen in a while. Song is stellar, I never did check out anything other than Blast Tyrant and Robot Hive / Exodus. But this sounds great, has that sing-a-long aspect for sure.

I think the most amazing thing about this band is that they DON'T come off as generic considering the genre of music they play. There's nothing really technical or complicated about an album like Blast Tyrant, it's just amazing because they know how to play that kind of rock in a no-bullshit way and hit all the right notes in all the right places.

This. Plus look at the lyrics, they're definitely not "generic".

It's supposed to be silly. I just got the vibe that these posts may be really informal if we want.

...and besides, it's not so subtle allusion to the title track of the record...
