Hailing from the same stomping grounds of the once great DAMAD and the later Kylesa, Black Tusk has been cultivating their sound for years through intense touring, several EPs, splits and one other full-length. One thing’s for sure, they’ve put in their time and since their last full-length, Passage Through Purgatory, in 2008, have sure been busy. I’ve caught their live act a few times and the energy of the two frontman, Athon and Andrew on stage is matched by few. Fast forward to 2010; the year after Baroness’ Blue Record and Kylsesa’s Static Tensions and Black Tusk is looking to make a bigger name for themselves with Taste the Sin. It’s hard to not draw strong similarities between Kylesa and Black Tusk but I think there’s more to this band than worshiping their home-town friends.
