Lynchpyn – Drop The Blade

They say music should make you feel something.  Lynchpyn will make you feel like you’ve been punched in the face by Chuck Norris.  Lynchpyn are here with their debut release Drop The Blade.  Over two tracks they show you their mission statement.  Loud, direct and so riff heavy the stage probably sinks a little at gigs.

Leading you into their world is Can You Speak Now.  This slams into you instantly with a big riff.  Big riff could get used quite often in this, time to start a swear jar.  But Can You Speak Now storms along. Surfing the riffs are demonic and tortured vocals that sound like they’re coming from another place.  Probably from below the stage.  Punchy and rapid Lynchpyn show you what they’re about, complete with more guitar break downs than a strung-out rock star.  A few well timed stops manage to jolt your mind just that little bit more.  There’s no getting away from the fact this is a metallic beast.

Compared to the release’s other track though this is the pop hit.  Drop The Blade is somehow even heavier, the opening riff sounding like the sinister intro to some evil being.  Then it breaks into a riff even more destructive.  More tortured vocals crawl down your ears as the guitars wreak havoc.  The sheer pace of metal the monster drags you along by your feet, slamming your head into every note along the way.  Lynchpyn somehow manage to sound concerned through the sound storm of pounding drums and guitars as ‘I am here/Drop the blade’ escapes the maelstrom.  A menacing bass line completes the scene.

This is just a starting point.  This band can only get heavier and more destructive, and bigger.  Find them and enjoy them, because they’ll probably come and find you anyway.  Enjoy!  Get Can You Speak Now free here.
