Perfecting Percussive Prize
December 19, 2014 3:43 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to find some music with simple instrumentation and composition with a focus on drums/percussion/heavy guitar and intense/strong vocals. I'm not sure how to describe what I'm looking for, but I do have a couple of examples. I blame the bear for reviving this intense need...

I wish there were a way to put my finger on it, but there's something about the combination that doesn't let up for me, but sadly the two songs that fit it perfect are kind of short. Kaneda's Theme was my first taste of this weird sweet spot, but that's been one of my jams for over ten years...
I desperately need more.

Some ideas (not all of which perfectly meet your criteria):

If you can deal with some honking sax along with your drums/guitar/vocals, Blurt In Berlin might be an album for you.

Almost any song by the The Builders and the Butchers should do it! Here's a couple: Devil's Townand Black Dresses.
