Clutch / Planet Of Zeus / Black Delta

Live Review

Venue: Academy, Bristol

Rock euphoria from the US heartland

It’s hard to name many bands a quarter of a century into their careers who could get away with playing a set almost entirely composed of cuts from their last two albums to a euphoric sold-out crowd who greet each new song as if it’s long been sewn into their DNA.

Yet off the back of the near-perfect one-two of Earth Rocker and this year’s even better Psychic Warfare, this is the enviable position CLUTCH [9] find themselves in, truly deserving of the air of goodwill and respect. The easygoing swagger of WELCOME BACK DELTA [7] **and **PLANET OF ZEUS’s** [8**] muscular riffs and raucous presence certainly play their part in setting the tone, leaving Neil Fallon’s wild-eyed presence to merely mop up the stragglers, triumphantly leading the way through the absurd fiction of X-Ray Visions and Sucker For The Witch
