Reliably informed

A four-bar drum stick intro can only mean one thing, we’re about to rock…and Psychic Death don’t want to hang around, vigorously launching headlong into Down On Me with a panzer division attack riff that could sit quite happily on a Queens of the Stone Age B-side.

The cantankerous monotone vocal is something of a curiosity after the monumental build of the track – imagine an inebriated Buzzcocks-era Howard Devoto fronting These Crooked Vultures and you won’t be far off – it jars a tad, nullifying the threat and dread of the approaching multi-layered thick as soup guitars. Happily, there’s still enough voltage to propel Down On Me to its conclusion.

Released: 02.05.21
