Blast Tyrant wasn’t just the follow-up to 2001’s guest musician-heavy Pure Rock Fury. The 15-song pinnacle of modern heavy rock was Clutch rewriting the rules. In many respects, the Marylanders had grown beyond their humble hardcore (and later alt-metal) trappings.
With Blast Tyrant, Clutch not only join fellow riff-rockers Kyuss, Monster Magnet and Sleep; they also find themselves next to their influences in Black Sabbath, Bad Brains and Melvins. The Hall hereby welcomes the heavy groove and sardonic wit of Clutch milemarker Blast Tyrant.
