King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Infest the Rats' Nest

I've never been a fan of thrash metal at all, I haven't dived into the discographies of the Big 4 and didn't grow up listening to much of it. In saying that, Infest the Rats' Nest is such a fun listen I might have to check out King Gizzard's obvious influence a bit more. Crunchy riffs and throaty vocals are a new aesthetic for the psych rock (and more recently, boogie rock) band, and they pull it off with the ease that they'd been making this music for the past two decades. It's only a short 35 minutes, but the band is so in their element here while also treading new ground it's honestly near miraculous how well these ideas come together. I wasn't expecting to like this at all, but I am tremendously impressed with what I've been treated with.
