Attention all metalheads, headbangers and ETIDidiots: unless you have been sleeping under a rock or purposely avoiding the Internet, you have probably already heard the new Every Time I Die single “Thirst” by now. The thrashbastic (yes, I just invented that word specifically for this review) single comes off ETID’s soon-to-be released full-length album From Parts Unknown which hits stores July 1.
Now, unfortunately with “Thirst” only clocking in at a whopping minute and twenty-four seconds, diehard ETID fans are left with their mouths wide open helplessly waiting to be fed more new music. Although, we cannot complain because what we have been given so far has been very satisfying.
Accompanied with an amusing music video following two Bill & Ted / Wayne’s World knockoffs, “Thirst” gives ETID fans a rapid rodeo ride of riffs and drumbeats that eventually, in true ETID fashion, leads into a bass heavy breakdown. It’s safe to say “Thirst” will certainly induce pits a plenty at this year’s Van’s Warped Tour.
Overall, would we have enjoyed a longer single? Yes. Are we acting very spoiled? Yes. Is “Thirst” an incredible track? Hell yeah it is.
