Friday Morning Metal – Ektomorf – You Can’t Control Me

This is some pretty aggro metal coming straight out of Hungary. I had not heard of Ektomorf until Bjørn Sportify decided I should discover it this week. And so far they’re pretty fun. Kind of reminds me of mid-to-late 90s Sepultura-esque metal. Super drivey drums, mega chuggy guitar, the works!

Also the song’s two and a half minutes long. They got their point across, that I can’t control him, so why belabor the point. The music video is pretty fun, with them out in a field in front of a military helicopter.

Checking out some of their newer stuff it sounds like they’re staying in the groove. I think if they came out like ten years earlier they would’ve toured the US with like System of a Down or Rammstein or something.

Friday Morning Metal – The Sword – Dying Earth

I guess they’re called stoner metal, groove metal, post metal, and all sorts of things. I call them The Sword, and they have a very classic sound in their new album Apocryphon. The main hook in this song is catchy as hell and the solos are fantastic.

Anyway, here’s Dying Earth.
