Music Finds #3 – Reggae meats metal
“Music Finds” is a new series, with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”.
Another week, another music find that I would like to share with you. Today I bring you a mix of reggae and metal that is the band Skindred!
This is a band that I first encountered last autumn, and listened a fair amount to over the course of about a month. But as I just “re-discovered” them, I thought that this was too good to not share!
The song below is named Rat Race, and the 3 minutes and 28 seconds that are to come is intense. This is a song that sets the tempo directly with its fast paced intro, that then moves over to a groovy first verse. The bridge has a good build-up, that leads up to my favorite part of this song (together with the breakdown) – the chorus.
You just can’t help but to head bang as Benji Webbe (the vocalist) unleashes the flow.
