New Heavy Sounds are about to unshackle the first long player by Black Moth and just to get you in the mood, NHS are offering free, gratis and for nothing, a little taster of what's to come.
'Chicken Shit' is taken from their debut album and you better believe us, that it's guaranteed to ravage tender ears, upset the musical literati and get your head banging.

At the production helm, is the awesome Jim Sclavunos, stixman for Grinderman/Bad Seeds, connoisseur of the mixing console and the man who brought us the latest Jim Jones Review album. He's skilfully magnified Black Moth's already lobotomisingly sharp points to Sabbath sized peaks.
From its super sludge chord beginning, through the break-neck thrash-punk squall, to the mordant laughter at its end, 'Chicken Shit' is two minutes, fifty seconds of no compromise, a full on menacing wall of heavy, pounding riff and throb, shot through with the strychnine howl of Harriet Bevan's vocals.
Long live the new heavy, praise Lucifer and pass the crushed glass in aspic. Get set to be savaged.
