Jukebox Time spotlights HEATHENSUN‘s latest EP ‘Nu-Metal Ninjas,’ a five-track manifesto of unbridled metal fury. ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ kicks off with an infectious vibrancy, its rhythms a cascading force that ensnares the psyche. With transitions as smooth as they are seductive and vocals soaked in a rawness we’ve missed in metal, the track also features the formidable artist Dropout Kings.
‘Shellshock’ roars to life with a guitar intro that’s pure fire, heralding Heathensun’s masterful sonic alchemy. The track ambushes you with its compelling vocals and relentless riffs, while the progressive metal elements mingle with provocative transitions to ensnare any listener. The lyrics, fierce and enigmatic, are laced with experimental flair.
‘4 Kings’ takes you on a three-minute blitz with an intriguing start and explosive melodies, where CHUCKY CHUCKY DGAF’s collaboration stands out. It’s a track that grabs the soul with jarring rhythms and a vocal rawness that’s becoming a rarity in modern metal.
‘Friends’ emerges as our favorite, painting a surreal soundscape of vocals and shredding riffs. The lyrics, vibrant and energetic, marry perfectly with an arrangement that defies convention. ‘The End’ concludes the journey, leaving listeners in the wake of a sonic maelstrom of potent, raw tonality.
