Pyscroptic have released a flurry of riff madness called “Cold” that features accompanying footage of hairy dudes raging and waterfalls and other cool stuff. You can’t listen to the opening attack of the song and not tell me this band can write a better riff than the attack of the tech death clones which has assailed ears the last few years. Listen, I like a blaze of furious riff gibberish as much as anyone, but it’s nice when the song itself also makes your blood rate quicken. “Cold” will not slow you down to a numb state like most super frosty experiences. You most likey will break a sweat and hurt your neck. RIYL anything from Inanimate Existence, Alterbeast, Decrepit Birth or even Lamb Of God.
