Interview: Black Tusk Talk About Their New Album, 'Set the Dial'

"The music's as thick as the air, it just kind of works," says Black Tusk bassist Johnathan Athon of the band's signature sound. Dubbed "swamp metal," the Savannah, Georgia-based band released their latest album, Set the Dial, earlier this week, an album that's sure to land near the top of many a year-end list. While there's nothing "progressive" about the album, the guys have noticeably honed their craft.
