Following their acclaimed, 2014 Deathwish debut, ‘Nothing For Us Here’, Salt Lake City’s Cult Leader are back with a three track sonic assault. The two original tracks ‘Useless Animal’ and ‘Gutter Gods’ are a monolithic barrage of distortion and heavy riffs while the B side, is a respectful cover of the Mark Kozelek & Desertshore number ‘You Are Not My Blood’.

Useless Animal by Cult Leader

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 July 2015

I’m going to start with the B side and not just because I can’t work the signs on the label out. It’s an amazingly intense trudge through Mark Kozelek and Desertshore's ‘You Are Not My Blood’. It gradually builds in intensity throughout and recalls some of Swans' more terrifying work, but also flies the slow-core flag with pride. Sludgy metal at it’s best.

Overleaf are two tracks that Robin could probably explain better than me. ‘Useless Animal’ is hardcore thrash metal grindcore like Napalm Death, Electro Hippies or whatever. There appears to be another song in there too, ‘Gutter Gods’, but I appear to have missed it.
