Clutch has been a staple of the blues
rock scene for quite some time now. Formed in 1990 in Germantown, MD, they

Psychic Warfare, which came out this past October.
consists of 11 songs. The tracks list goes as follows: "X-Ray Visions,"
"Firebirds," "A Quick Death in Texas," "Sucker for the Witch," "Your Love is
Incarceration," "Doom Saloon," "Our Lady of Electric Light," "Noble Savage,"
"Behold the Colossus," "Decapitation Blues," and "Son of Virginia."
Of all of the tunes on Psychic
Warfare, the standout is the short instrumental connector "Doom Saloon."
Now, you might ask yourself why I would pick the interlude of this album as
my favorite track. The answer is simple: "Doom Saloon" allowed for a huge
shift in sound for the remainder of the duration of Psychic Warfare.
After this tune ended, the rest of the album suddenly got faster and
heavier. I love fast and heavy music, so this sat well with me. Everything
north of "Doom Saloon" was terrific.
has top notch production. This album has a lot of guitar solos. Neil Fallon
delivered vocally. The timing of each song from start to finish was almost
flawless. Intro to outro, everything in each of the songs just flowed.
Overall, I was very satisfied with how
Psychic Warfare turned out. It’s a genuine album that really
showcases who Clutch is as a band. I would definitely recommend this to a
friend, or anybody else for that matter. If you haven’t had the chance to do
so, give Psychic Warfare a listen. When you’re finished doing that,
go buy it! You can find it wherever music is being sold.
