You never know what you’re going to get from Hank3, and that’s certainly the case with his three brand-new albums – one country/hellbilly, one doom rock, and one speed metal – all due out September 6 on his own Hank3 Records.
His speed metal offering – 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin – explores a new mind-bending “Cattle Core” sound, featuring Hank3’s speed metal woven in and around actual cattle auctioneering, and in some cases, his own higher-register vocal treatment laid over the top. Well-known auctioneers Tim Dowler and Mitch Jordan are featured on the album. Metal fans will notice some tongue-in-cheek humor with titles such as “Heavy Cattle” and “Angus of Death.”
Decibel’s Deciblog is exclusively offering a free download of two songs from 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin – “Branded” and “Black Cow.” Log onto www.decibelmagazine.com/blog
