St Louis groove thrasher’s Final Drive are at it again with their upcoming release Dig Deeper that is set to drop on February 3rd.
As the follow up to the 2014 release Lifeswork, Dig Deeper is another great release from Final Drive. It has aggressive, angry, heavy, and seriously thought-provoking lyrics throughout the entire album. If there’s a new album you should be adding to your collection this year, this should be your early grab of 2017. You are going to want to get up and move while you are listening to this one.
The first three tracks “This Is How, Built to Break,” and “The Last Time” are solid, fast-paced, thrash songs with a bit of groove in the blend. The fourth track, “Six Feet Down,” hits a bit slower for the groove sound, but by the fifth track, “Want It All,” Final Drive speeds the tempo back up for some more aggressive thrash. Into the sixth track, “Life Decided,” it is back to a mix of thrash and groove that lasts through the remaining tracks: “Follow the Curse, Beneath Us, Of a Killer,” and “Black Out.”
Final Drive states they like Pantera, Clutch, Slayer, and AC/DC on their Facebook page. Listening to this new album I hear many influences in their music, but moreover, I hear Final Drive’s own sound.
If this album doesn’t inspire you to get up off your ass and thrash around, nothing will. I can’t wait to catch Final Drive doing a live show with this release; the pits are going to be in full force with this sound.
