Dub Trio New Heavy
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Roir
While the mingling of rock and dub dates back to punk rastas like The Clash and Bad Brains, it's been less than successful in most experiments. Enter New York-based Dub Trio, whose phenomenal live show has translated to a record well worth the wait. The rock-influenced, predominantly instrumental New Heavy is capped by the brilliant "Not Alone," where guest Mike Patton shares epic growls rarely heard since his days in Faith No More. As for the remaining 35 minutes, Dub Trio proves that their move from backing musicians to a full-on ensemble was only a matter of time.
