Song of the Week: Tremonti – “Another Heart”

Cauterize lands in stores and at all digital retailers on June 9, 2015, however, Tremonti treated the world to the lyric video of the first single “Another Heart” this week. It’s made good on every promise of his debut All I Was—and then some. The track merges a Pantera-size opening riff with Garrett Whitlock’s smart bomb precise drumming and a blazing lead line. Eric “Erock” Friedman proves to be the perfect six-string counterpoint, while Wolfgang Van Halen’s bass could rumble the earth to its core. Tremonti segues from that bruising intro into an entrancing verse with vivid lyrics that cascade into an irresistibly deadly refrain, showcasing his immense vocal talent.
The centerpiece of the track remains the guitar back-and-forth in the middle just before a ripping signature lead. This is the crossroads of thrash, polyrhythmic tech metal, and melodic hard rock. It's like if Slayer, Gojira, and Alice in Chains had a baby. It’s unlike anything out there, and it’s going to make a massive impact this year. “Another Heart” is another anthem from Tremonti and the start of something incredible.
