A song a day: Tomahawk - God Hates A Coward
I love this song for multiple reasons:
A: The riff sounds like a lost Jesus Lizard classic and shows how much muscle Duane Denison had in the band. Patton collaborations tend to be over run by his voice but I think Denison's imprint is all over Tomahawk.
B: Whether he's playing in Helmet, Battles, the Mark Of Cain or any other band, John Stanier always has a mighty, mighty drum sound.
C: Great lyrics surrealist lyrics from Patton and a shit hot chorus.
You either get it or you don't but this combines so many elements of the music I love that it could plausibly be perfect.
