Sunday Metal Song: Clutch, “50,000 Unstoppable Watts”

Clutch is back with a powerful new track called “50,000 Unstoppable Watts” from their forthcoming Strange Cousins from the West album, and our friends at the MetalSucks Clutch, Strange Cousins of the Westmansion were kind enough to offer an exclusive premiere. The release is due in stores on July 7th, and if this track is any indication, it looks like Clutch won’t be straying too far from the riff-heavy, groovy prog rock they’ve displayed on some of the exceptional releases they’ve put out this decade. In fact, while it’s hardly a sound that qualifies for the “metal” classification I’ve thrown on them in this post, it seems to marry the wicked boot-stomping heaviness that originally introduced me to Clutch with the swampy classic rock and blues that eventually started to infest their minds more seamlessly than ever. My prediction is that this will be the album to satisfy your summer hard rock craving; I hope Clutch finally get the radio play they deserve with Strange Cousins. Get this one while it’s hot!

  1. I hope it doesn’t get FM radio play because FM radio ruins everything they get a hold of. Clutch ROCKS!

  2. Just got the album yesterday without hearing a single sound clip. After almost 20 years of grade A rock, Clutch is a band I simply trust to rock my socks off. Once again, as always they deliver in abundance. Clutch evolves with every release and with each evolution they get better and better. I predict if they keep improving at their current pace by 2020 they will rule the universe. (or at least Mars)
