Black Tusk : Pillars Of Ash

BT CB POAWith the sad passing of Athon, we had feared that we’d seen the last of Black Tusk. Last years shows with BLS were a welcome reconnection with the band and now we have ‘Pillars of Ash’ to spin too.

Athon is still very much a part of ‘Black Tusk’ where this album is concerned and credit to the man, because it absolutely rips.

Hardly stopping for a pause ‘Pillars of Ash’ rumbles along like a runaway dump truck. Short and snappy tracks with an aggressive nature but wonderfully warm fuzz too; ‘Pillars of Ash’ is a rollicking great send off for Athon and proves that Black tusk still have plenty to offer.
