Top O’ the morning to you lords and ladies, It is your Mistress of Metal, the Skullgurl. Boy, oh boy, do I have a doozy of a Metal band to introduce you love muffins to this week. If Brutal had a sound, this is what it would sound like. Let me introduce you to your new favorite METAL band, 3 MINUTES TO LIVE. It can safely be said that I was knocked right on my Skullgurl ass when this band came flooding through my headphones. I actually had to stop what I was doing to see who in the actual fuck it was delivering such passionate aggressive metal into my ear holes. I honestly thought I had clicked on the wrong file and was listening to a big name talent in this genre, that is how polished these 5 dudes present themselves. When I listen to a new band my gray matter automatically matches the sound to one of my favorite bands. Now, I tend to try and steer clear from labeling a band saying they “sound like” another band, because music is subjective, each musician has an individual essence they inject into their music. Just this once I am gonna break my rule and give you my honest opinion of who I think this band sounds like. Imagine if Prong and Clutch had a baby and that baby grew up and had a baby with Lamb of God, that would describe the music of 3 MINUTES TO LIVE. Now, all of you 3 MINUTES TO LIVE fans, don’t get your undies in a bunch, I give the comparison with much thought and research. I have listened to and appreciated those 3 band since their inception, so I have followed their metamorphosis through out the years. I can say with 100% confidence that the talent level if 3 MINUTES TO LIVE is equal to the previously mentions bands. I listened to the early music of 3MTL to their current album and marveled at the transformation these 5 Nashville Tennessee guys have made over the 14 plus years they have been a band. They have truly found their own unique voice and have created a rare multifaceted sound of “True Metal”. I also call “True” “Metal” “Root Metal”, as in where all Metal evolved from. Don’t believe me? Follow me, I’ll learn ya.
At the bottom of all my articles I post music links. Usually I make you wait until you read the meat and potatoes of my ramblings before I let you click on links, not today sweet peas! Here, right in the middle of the nutty goodness of this article is the link to a song by these guys you HAVE GOT TO LISTEN TO, RIGHT MEOW! CLICK PLAY!
Alright my little dew drops, that is all I really need to say about this band. They are, in Skullgurl speak, AMAZEBALLS. I know you all think I call EVERY band AMAZEBALLS, and you are wrong, just the most Amazeballiest get that title from me. 3 MINUTES TO LIVE won the title fair and square. Now, be good little metal minions and click the links, buy the music and invite the absolute brilliancy that is 3 MINUTES TO LIVE into your world.
