Steak - Disastronaught
Vegetarians and vegans won't like what's on today's musical menu: Steak.
Now, with a name like that I expect some thick, meaty riffs and Steak sure fill me up. The four rock chefs from the U.K. have cooked up some tasty slabs of stoner beef on their new ep, Disastronaught. It has flavors from some of my favorite groups like Fu Manchu, Monster Magnet and Clutch.
"The Butcher" is probably my Porterhouse when it comes to Steak. It's one of my favorite cuts here and there's a lot of damn meat.
"Machine" is the Ribeye. Just about the most flavorful of all the Steak to me. Marbled with psychedelic lines and SO tender.
"Gore Whore" is the lean and mean New York Strip. Not as much to it as a T-bone or Porterhouse, but still tastes as good.
"Fall of Lazarus" is the Filet Mignon on Disastronaught. It takes some time to eat this one because the riffs are so thick, and it's wrapped in fat-ass bass lines.
"Peyote" is the saucepan of psychedelic mushrooms, sauteed in acoustic butter, that adds even more flavor to Steak.
One thing I can't believe is that Steak are offering their music for a 'name your price' kinda deal on Bandcamp, which is extremely generous, kinda like serving all-you-can-eat prime rib to the homeless.
Steak. Best served with your favorite beverage and a side of greenery. Mmm.
Eat this stuff up but chew slowly. Savor it. And don't forget the gratuity if you can afford it.
