Listen to Hadean’s “Inertia” or be forever uncool

Check out a new song from this Massachusetts sextet saxtet here. FFO: widdly diddlies, uplifting arrangements, and smooooth sax y’all.

I get a monstrous amount of band submissions in my inbox; some great, some OK, and some (lots) lolbuttz. But few things that end up in my email have ever knocked me on my taut, glorious ass quite like “Inertia”, the first taste of Hadean‘s upcoming LP On Fading. The band has created a singular style that recalls the off-kilter compositions of Kayo Dot, the candy-coated fretwork of Between the Buried and Me, and the self-aware 7os yacht vibes of Destroyer (the Dan Bejar one, not the 666’ers).

“Inertia” takes us on an almost 10-minute journey that starts with sexy, if mournful sax, through crushing doom riffage, into a righteously fun middle section, and closes with more baby-makin’ woodwind. Give it a spin and feel the good vibes. Or skip it and sulk all day. See if I care.

Go like Hadean on Facebook to keep up to date with release info for On Fading. Tell ’em the Toilet sez “AYO”.

    Oh, I’m sorry Joe. I couldn’t hear you under my cloak of uncool. Let me put my bionic ear in really quick.

    I don’t usually do mournful sex, but this is good.

        I have the link already ready to go with a quick flash of the old CTRL+V, as this is my cousin with his ever gross mullet, but alas, you have bested me in the copy paste game this time.

        • This is your cousin?

          • Disgustache

            The cousin of my Disqus profile, yes. Gross hair for the face on one, gross hair on the head for the other.

            The sweaty pale kid typing this to you does not have any connection to him IRL. I was going for those super nerdy role play points.

          • Fine work, sir.

            GL

          • Disgustache

            I thank thee.

  • The sax part over the doom riff is smooth and crusty.

  • Celtic Frosty

    For real, though, really interested to hear a full album’s worth of this.

    • Guacamole Jim

      I STILL BELIEVE

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Finally

      • The Haunting Presence of Tyree

        Finally what? I’ve always been down with greased up sax dude from Lost Boys.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Just scrolling through, waiting for this gif to finally show up

  • Howard Dean
  • Scrimm

    Joe made me want to like this, but the sax was still too much.

    • Hubert

      Never enough sex.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain
    • Dubzlinger, Malandro

      The lisp kills it for me.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        You don’t like cute quirks on chicks? I didn’t even think it was that strong of a lisp. I think you need to take a knee and grab a Gatorade.

        • Dubzlinger, Malandro

          She’s pretty dang talented though. I actually think she plays it better than the sexy sax man. So she has that going for her.

  • The Haunting Presence of Tyree

    Full of Hell had a sax player when they played at MDF. I wasn’t having it.

  • Oh wow, I didn’t expect the song to have VOCALS. FUCKIN SWEEEEEEEET.

    Wowowowowow

    • OMG AMPLE WEEDLIES TOO???

      The riffing reminds me of mid or noodly 2000s rock band riffs. Neat

      • Dang, the first listen was the tits. I am starting my second.

        Fine find Joe!

        GL

        • I’m stoked you’re digging it GL!

          • Hell yeah. The “voice” of the sax is a nice fit. It is almost disappointing when the sax goes quit lol.

  • Dubzlinger, Malandro

    This song is pretty sweet. A lot of different elements, but it all works.

    Alright I’m out. I’m done pestering you all.

      I just had a small road trip a couple weeks ago and listened to this record among others.
      Here’s the list.
      Weakling – “Dead as Dreams” 9.5/10
      * if you like modern black metal and you don’t know about this record you are a poser – simple as that. damn near perfection (as you can tell by the score!)
      Grave Miasma – “Odori Sepulcrorum” 7.5/10
      * needed a change of pace after weakling – solid death metal record, definitely enjoyed it.
      Nero Di Marte – “Derivae” 5/10
      * I know people like this record and I can kind of see why – but it’s just not for me. all the vocal sections seemed identical after a while, and therefore all the heavy sections started to also.
      Falls of Rauros – “Believe in No Coming Shore” 6.5/10
      * I really wanted to like this more. It has all the identifiers of something I would normally like. It certainly wasn’t bad, but I could not get over the guitar tone. It was just so straightforward sounding – no distortion, reverb, nothing.

      edit: And I will definitely check this out Joe, based on the destroyer reference alone. Thanks.

      • The Haunting Presence of Tyree

        Those top 2 are definitely solid, especially Dead as Dreams. The bottom 2 don’t do anything for me really.

        I recommend the new Lluvia, Havukruunu, Israthoum, Horns Of Domination, Svarta, Murg, and Nadiwrath if you have not checked them out already..

        • RJA

          Great recommendations. The only one I’ve listened to is the Lluvia. I will check out the rest. thanks.

        Re: Your Falls of Rauros Review

        BOOOOO

        Sincerely,
        YLIF

        • RJA

          I will definitely revisit that one – that was my first listen.

          • YourLogicIsFlushed

            It’s a weird one for me, in that it is very different than my usual tastes, but I love it. It might be that people actually embedded in that style actually aren’t the biggest fans, who knows.

  • Guacamole Jim
  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Did someone say saxophone? I love saxophone in my rock!

  • Stockhausen

    I quite enjoyed this. I really dislike the saxophone in a lot of settings, but it seems to work in the metal/post-metal realm fairly often.

    • I saw Coliseum perform with the sax player from Yakuza. It was siqqqqq.

      • Stockhausen

        Hot dad that would be good (thinking about trying to make “hot dad” an exclamatory phrase).

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod
      • Scrimm

        “gets out”

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          And good riddance!

      • Stockhausen

        There is so, so much bad saxophone out there.

        • *points at the saxophone section*
          *shakes head*

        • Guacamole Jim

          No saxophone is as bad as the trombone, even when it’s played well. I fucking HATE the trombone with a fiery passion. It’s a stupid instrument with a stupid sound. It is literally the frequencies you pull out of a mix because they sound like asshole. Plus only dorks who look like this play trombone:

          http://andrewhugill.com/manuals/trombone/trombone.gif

          • Scrimm

            I hate the trombone as well. Not as much though.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Wait! What about all those Sousa marches and the Tower of Power dude? Where would we be without all the kick ass trombone on those sweet tracks?

          • Guacamole Jim

            We’d be in a happier place, my friend.

          • Stockhausen

            I’d take trombone over sax in most situations. Let’s fite.

          • Guacamole Jim
          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            You too, my tasty friend, are wrong. Ain’t nothin’ better than a horn-y person. Regardless of the type of horn.

        • Scrimm

          All of it.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          But… but… saxomaphone!
          It’s the trambapoline of music world!

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    This be good. Rill gud as a detecting friend would say.
    Would defs have sax to this.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      A shame there’s only one song’s worth of it. I need more.

  • Disgustache

    This was all over the board, but I’m not complaining. I really enjoyed it. It’s like people that dip their fries in chocolate shakes: you think “You’re a fucking lunatic and shouldn’t be allowed around food.” Then you try it, and it’s really really good.

    This song is fries in chocolate shakes.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    I listened to their previous album, Ataraxia, this morning. So very good, looking forward to the full release. (Insert ejaculation joke here).

    • Listening now; shaking head up/down to simultaneously bang head and agree with vehemence.

  • DCLXVI

    Good tunes. That pianist on their FB page looks like he needs a fitting for a locker tho

  • Waynecro

    I typically dislike saxophone, but this works pretty well. It’s not nearly as rawkin’ as the horn section in this classic ripper, though:

    The bigger the better (+ preemptive “that’s what she said”).
