“Melt Your Mind.” It’s the title of the latest new song from Mutoid Man, but it’s also an apt description of what listening to the song will do. We loved Mutoid Man’s debut full length Bleeder when it came out a few years ago, given that we were big fans of Cave In. That band’s Singer and guitarist Stephen Brodsky kept his excellent guitar sounds and effects, along with his ability to turn a phrase and expressive vocal range. However, the addition of Converge drummer Ben Koller and bassist Nick Cageao were like his old band on meth, and we mean that in a good way.

Now they’re back with the first single from their sophomore full length, War Moans, and it’s a rager. “Melt Your Mind,” which Metal Injection premiered earlier today sounds like the spawn of Motorhead and Iron Maiden, and in just over two minutes, has managed to get us very excited for the rest of the album, which will be out on June 2nd on Sargent House. They’ll be on tour for a solid month and a half with Helms Alee, which will give a lot of people the chance to see them live for the first time. Don’t miss them if they make it to your town.
