Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) October 31, 2012 -- Washington state metal band Set4th has released their latest official video for their flagship single, "Screamin Demons," to fan and critical acclaim. Set4th is a heavy metal band in the tradition of Pantera, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, and other mainstays of the metal genre. With an appropriate release date of October 31st (the American holiday of Halloween), "Screamin Demons" could not be more timely, nor Set4th's sound more dark and foreboding.
Set4th, the Frankensteinian monster-creation of Pike Auchtung, is a heavy metal band in the truest sense of the word. The guitar work is lightning-fast, though measured, like the mechanical guts of a machine gun. The percussion is a driving staccato of snares, toms, and crash symbols. The bass, in lieu of founding brother Sloppy Joe, maintains its Set4th nobility from the cover of shadows. In short, the looming, booming wall of sound that is Set4th stands giant and tall in this video release of "Screamin Demons," and is evidence that in this latter year 2012, the spirit of metal remains untarnished by time, and alive - or, rather - very, very much undead.
There is more to Auchtung's music than mere headbanging fare, however. As a lyricist, he has spent time infusing his words with meaning beneath and behind the surface and the symbols. Of this he writes: "'Screamin Demons' is about conquering your fears before they conquer you. I use metaphors to place listeners into a more creative realm. I believe the metaphor I use for 'Screamin Demons' can help listeners to feel strong, and powerful enough to defeat their toughest fears."
At the very least, fans of Set4th must allow that Auchtung himself is the furthest thing from afraid. He carries every artistic responsibility for the band, and does so to great effect. His obvious, resounding triumph may be heard in the electrical charge surging through each chord, in each smash of the drums, and certainly in the approbation of the metal scene.
