Blast Tyrant is Clutch’s sixth full-length studio album! It was originally released in March 2004 as CD only (on DRT Entertainment) and now re-issued as double CD set on Weathermaker Music with a second disc added entitled Basket OF Eggs. Guitarist Tim Sult and crew come out firing on all cylinders on opening track Mercury, which starts out with a long instrumental passage chock full of mean, thick and ferocious riffs before vocalist Neil Fallon takes command at the top of his lungs. The part-political, part-protest rock cut Mob Goes Wild was a minor hit in modern rock radio seven years ago and is still an album highlight, along with the southern rock-ish hard rock and danger zone lyrics of Cypress Grove. Other favourites include Profits of Doom, which is bass-heavy and contains some pseudo-psychedelic vocals, along with the moderately paced rock of Promoter (of Earthbound Causes), with its standout out-there and humorous lyrics like “A little bit of Ritalin goes a long way,” and the all-out.
