Colos­sus

MASCOT Wide-rang­ing rock he­do­nism from An­twerp’s well-trav­elled repro­bates Triggerfinger have spent 20 years sup­port­ing hard rock heavy­weights from the Stones to Muse to Clutch, but have yet to en­gage wider au­di­ences. With Colos­sus, they’ve chucked it all out the win­dow and gone for broke. 2014’s By Absence Of The Sun bal­anced a fuzzed-out mood­i­ness with gothic un­der­tones, and if it rep­re­sented the spi­ralling come­down af­ter a night on the town, then Colos­sus trav­els back in time to the chaotic, sweat-drenched hours spin­ning in the cen­tre of the mad­ness. Flesh Tight and Bring Me Back A Live Wild One pul­sate with mus­cu­lar swag­ger, while tracks like Steady Me show­case a new ap­petite for elec­tron­i­ca­fu­elled ex­per­i­men­tal­ism. Di­verse and dance­able as hell, Colos­sus ra­di­ates a se­duc­tive sense of dan­ger and a snotty punk rock ethos. In throw­ing out their own rule­book, Triggerfinger have found their sound.
