Try to remember what the British rock scene was like before Raging Speedhorn. Go on. Hard, isn’t it?
Let us help you out. The British rock scene was dying. It was made up of dribbling metal boys bellowing a whole lot of nothing, empty-headed grunge kids prostrating themselves at the shrine of Saint Kurt, fey indie waifs with featherlight haircuts and featherweight tunes.
Raging Speedhorn didn’t just change all that. They strapped a landmine to its chest, rammed a grenade into its mouth, and blew it all to Kingdom Come.
This year sees the release of their awe-inspiring third album, "How The Great Have Fallen". Produced by Queens Of The Stone Age associate Joe Baresi, "How The Great Have Fallen" is their mightiest album yet. Such spectacularly savage tracks as ‘A Different Shade Of Shit’, ‘Slay The Coward’, ‘Dead Man Walking’ and ‘Don’t Let The Bastards Grind You Down’ show that they’ve lost none of their bite. This is the sound of angry men making violent music for unhinged people.
Raging Speedhorn have already redefined the face of metal. With "How The Great Have Fallen", they’ve done it yet again.
