Heavy Song of the Week is a new Heavy Consequence feature that breaks down the top metal and hard rock tracks you need to hear every Friday. This week the honor goes to Full of Hell and Primitive Man’s collaborative single “Rubble House.”
Full of Hell Singer Dylan Walker is a man of many collaborations. Over the years, he has teamed up with noise legend Merzbow, post-metal explorers The Body, Lingua Ignota, and more. For his latest joint effort, he and the rest of Full of Hell join forces with Denver sludge metal act Primitive Man for the upcoming album Suffocating Hallucination.
Lead single “Rubble Home” is a warming introduction to the collab, combining the doomy sludge of Primitive Man with the dark industrial noise of Full of Hell. The six-minute piece is some of the most uncompromisingly darkly intense music we’ve heard so far in 2023, offering little respite for listeners of a more delicate sensibility. The only breathing room in the arrangement is the gaps between Primitive Man’s big riffs, where feedback squeals and notes decay.
