When it comes to the best music, some people are very picky. Like with Heavy Metal or Hardcore, for example, most people say that to have a great Heavy Metal or Hardcore album, the musicians must attack their music with equal amounts of brute force as well as speed. The argument is that there must be an unrelenting pace to the music: the faster, the better and the harder, the better.
But then again, there are always the exceptions to the rule. And as a very loud exception to the rule, there are bands like Dad The Plow. It is on the band’s 2007 release, The Heavy, that the group proves that heavy music does not need to come with speed to be intense.
