Song of the Day, 16 March 2011, R**k the Vote

Hello Everyone,

Before I post the SOTD, I want to say welcome to our new metal brother, atleastimhousebroken.  I know he will do great things for our humble blog.  It is always awesome to meet someone who not only has the same interests, but also is not shy about expressing themselves.  Welcome to the team, sir. 

Today’s SOTD is “R**k the Vote” by Carcass, from the album Swansong.

I only own two Carcass albums, Swansong and Heartwork.  And I have to say, the difference between these two albums is staggering.  When Michael Amott left Carcass, their sound changed dramatically.  That being said, both albums kick serious ass.  I can hear a more groove-grind feel with the Swansong album, while Heartwork is a little more death-thrash. 

I chose this song because I like the intro to the song.  The guitar part throughout is great, and the whole song is pretty straightforward.  I have come to realize that I am very partial to groove-metal songs and artists, which may be why I prefer the Swansong album over Heartwork.
