“Call of the Void” by Mutoid Man
Mutoid Man, includes Cave In vocalist/guitarist Steven Brodsky, Converge drummer Ben Koller and the newly added High on Fire bassist Jeff Matz have announced their first new album in six years, the trio’s forthcoming album Mutants, will drop on July 28th. Ahead of the album’s release, the band has shared “Call of the Void.” The song arrives with a Two Minutes to Late Night directed video where the band breaks out of their robotic confines, eventually transforming into their true mutant self.
Brodsky and Koller, who possess an almost telepathic chemistry, have always excelled at crafting their own unique brand of frenzied, hyper-focused, dynamic, and excessive fretboard-savvy metal. When you take two players who were raised in the hardcore world and who quickly surpassed the technical requirements for playing even the more sophisticated spins on that sound, and then make them playfully push each other into more outrageous and catchy territories, you have a rough approximation of the Mutoid Man sound. But with new bassist Jeff Matz in tow, you now have a trifecta of prog-level players approaching metal with punk irreverence on Mutants, an album that stands to be their most accomplished and most mindboggling effort yet.
Mutants follows the band’s debut EP Helium Head (2013), the band took on a manic work ethic over the next four years, cranking out two full-lengths, Bleeder (2015) and War Moans (2017), touring relentlessly across the US and Europe, and becoming something of a de facto house band for New York metal venue Saint Vitus. With tour dates supporting like Mastodon and Danzig. after a six-year recording hiatus, Mutoid Man are back!
