Song Premiere: Sandrider’s “Gorgon”

A day after Link Wray and Nirvana were nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it’s only fitting that we premiere a riffed-out song from a Seattle band. Here’s Sandrider’s “Gorgon,” the first debuted track off of their forthcoming album album Godhead. As I’ve been listening to Godhead over the past few days, the noise/southern sludge has taken hold. Some of the tracks on the album crunch along at mid-tempo; others have lofty ambitions and culminate in epic crescendos. “Gorgon” is here to party.

Sandrider takes their name from the Frank Herbert novel Dune, and Godhead is the three-piece’s second album. Fans of bands like Red Fang and Black Tusk (sticking to bands with colors in their names here) will dig Sandrider. “Gorgon’s” got a good thrashy tilt to it—give it a listen below, and let us know what you think.

Sandrider’s Godhead is out November 19 on Good to Die Records.
