The tautness of the guitars and drum fills that begin Intoxicated Rage’s new single Battlefield is truly a sight to behold (or behear). The deliberate pacing of the single’s first minute will get listeners all riled up, while the vocals kick in with a blend of Godsmack, System of a Down, Metallica, and Disturbed. A deep, dark abyss of sludgy metal awaits fans. The number of distinct arrangements that make their way onto Battlefield keeps things fresh over the course of the cut’s five-minute run time. With assertive riffs and a chugging momentum, Battlefield will draw listeners in and spit them out shortly after.
