Black Tusk - Taste the Sin (Relapse Records)

The 4th full length album from this Sludge Metal group has been burning up juice on my iphone for the past month.  The album starts off with a short track entitled 'Brewing the Storm' that is sort of a welcome as well as a warning that what you're about to listen to is heavy as hell.  Standout tracks for me are 'Resistor', 'Mass Devotion', 'This Time is Divine', and especially 'Crossroads & Thunder' a track that ends with the trio switching gears to a more down-tuned but no-less catchy rhythm/beat.  

My rating:  8.5/10
