WATCH! Lightning Bolt Animate Unholy Chaos in “The Metal East” WATCH! Lightning Bolt Animate Unholy Chaos in “The Metal East”

I had been down on Lightning Bolt through their last couple of releases as they treaded further and further away from the anarchic hopespring that made them one of the greatest goddamn bands on the planet into the murky, churning depths of a band overspent if not broken but then they disappeared a minute to forge their own accomplishments and now? Well, shit. Now they’re ultra and, as such, have just dropped a clip for “The Metal East” (which opens Fantasy Empire like a motherfucker…go buy it) which has all the looney hammer-smashed, de-tooned apocalyptical psychedelicate whirlpool you’d expect from Fort Thunder’s most illuminated wunderkinds. You can check that clip below and then go see them play a show because…I mean, seriously. It’s fucking Lightning Bolt.
