CAUSTIC CASANOVA: new single “Anubis Rex” available
The twisted new song opens with a country-style guitar slide and sports the Latin title ‘Anubis Rex’ (“King Anubis”), and refers to the Egyptian god of death rites. On their fifth album, the brain-frying “Glass Enclosed Nerve Center”, Washington, DC-based riffonauts CAUSTIC CASANOVA pull an expansive range of sounds into their tight, hyperkinetic core – and explode them outward in a kaleidoscope of progressive heavy rock exuberance. In ferocious opposition to playing music in an established style that might give listeners a way in but can narrow down what’s allowable, the foursome plant their flag dramatically on the side of genre-agnostic exploration. Simply put, the Americans allow each song to go wherever the hell it wants (or needs) to head towards.
