Black Is the Night, Metal We Fight

Drew Daniel from Matmos is about to release a metal cover album with his side project The Soft Pink Truth. The album reimagines metal songs as rave and house tracks and, as Stereogum puts it, “comes together as a fascinating glimpse into the mind of Daniel processing being a gay fan of black metal." 

The first track of the project, a cover of Venom’s seminal song, will probably annoy the hell out of your trve metal friends (and most other friends) but I think it is weird and awesome. Like most Matmos stuff.

5 minute dance party break on your Friday afternoon at the desk with Frank Turner’s “Four Simple Words.” A cut off his new record Tape Deck Heart. This song is going to be amazing live.

So – put your hands on your hips, bring your knees in tight, yeah we do this shit together man, no fists, no fights…
