Before we begin, I’ve had the privilege of seeing Zeke perform live in good old Kearney, Nebraska’s, Expo Center way back. Basically, it was a metal show in a fancy barn with a dirt floor. They were opening for the almighty Motörhead, who just happened to be touring with Corrosion Of Conformity… what a great show. After all these years… Zeke still has it, the new record’s preview looks promising and FAST!
This is their first new album in over 14 years!!! That’s a long vacation.
Their forthcoming album titled “Hellbender” looks to be a speed demon of a record. Just check out the track “Working Man”, the song is high-octane punk metal and clocks in at 1 minute and 27 seconds. The title track “Hellbender” is only 48 seconds, that’s right… 48 f#$%ing seconds. Hopefully, if you see them live you don’t have to take a piss or you might miss half the set haha.
I’m digging the three preview tracks and the rest of the album must be great with song titles like “Two Lane Blacktop”, “AR-15”, “Cougar Rock”, and “Redline”. The record comes out March 30th, 2018. Here is a link to their Bandcamp page where you can pre-order the record and merch. Or if you just want to hang out here, the music player is below.
