Track of the Day: Tyrant

Categories: MP3 of the Day

Stoner humor doesn't just make for excellent summer blockbusters, it also makes for some hilarious band descriptions. To wit, the bio of Oakland doom metalheads Tyrant, who explain themselves thusly:

"We got high and then all these riffs fell out of us and we were all like what the fuck, so we grinded the fuck out of them and slowed em down and got em higher and yeah... weed...."

That ridiculous bio, along with the fact that they use what sounds like a sample of director Werner Herzog speaking in their tune "Wartime in the Heart," has earned the group the honor of being today's "Track of the Day." Listen to what getting high and getting pelted with riffs sounds like here.

(Thanks to clubs editor John Graham for the tip).
