Tracks: Clutch – Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)

Dan Winters

US groove rock masters Clutch have released a brand new single and video today, titled ‘Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)’.

Frontman and lyric wordsmith Neil Fallon expounds,

“Early in 2021, I learned the Boss Metal Zone pedal schematic was being presented as “proof” that the Covid-19 vaccine had an electronic component to communicate with 5G cellular networks. It was, of course, nonsense. It sounded like a Philip K. Dick premise. I didn’t want to write a song specific to Covid-19 vaccines, so I went with the Philip K. Dick angle (again). “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” came to mind (replicants, in particular, representing what is real and not real, or is there a difference at all?). The video makes no secret that this is an homage to Philip K. Dick and a future where we have distortion coursing through our veins.”

Drummer Jean-Paul Gaster adds, 

“‘Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)’ is one of the faster cuts on our forthcoming album. It kicks in and hits like a freight train. The intensity of the recording reminds me of our live shows. This song cooks and I can’t wait to play it on tour!”

Demonstrating their in your face raging rock once again the band have created another monster of a track. The surge of guitars meets the thumping of drums all sounding like rock heaven with Fallon’s raging vocals sounding simply amazing on top.
