In 2014, Jonathan Athon, bassist for the great Georgia metal power trio Black Tusk, died in a motorcycle crash. He’d recorded one final album with his bandmates, and that album, entitled Pillars Of Ash, will finally see release later this month. We’ve already posted the early track “God’s On Vacation,” and now we get to hear “Desolation Of Endless Times,” a revved-up two-and-a-half minute banger that shows just how locked-in this band was. Check it out below.
Pillars Of Ash is out 1/29 on Relapse.
