SONG OF THE WEEK
Song: "Truth’s Ugly Head"
Artist: Nuclear Rabbit
T&E contributor Mike Cochiolo says, “Nuclear Rabbit is an avant-garde metal band. They are known for their strange and often humorous lyrics as well as their funky bass guitar and unusual musical structure. 'Truth’s Ugly Head' is my favorite of their songs, it is also one of their few serious songs where the lyrics are not intended to be humorous or absurd. It’s a song about distinguishing between people who do what’s right and people who only appear to do what’s right., and they tackle this subject matter with poetic clarity and thought provoking lyrics. Musically this song is much more melancholic than the bulk of their music, and some elements (particularly with the expressive clean vocals) remind me of the early first wave emo bands. The screaming reminds me a lot of screamo and metalcore style screaming, but it is done in a way that does not sound contrived or uninspired. Most importantly they achieve this melancholy and introspective mood without sacrificing the funky bass guitar or the heaviness of the lead guitar and the vocals. For fans of the experimental proto nu-Metal bands of the late 80s and early 90s like Primus and Mr. Bungle, I highly recommend giving this song a listen."
