Big Business is a band. They play heavy rock. On that, we can all agree. Things get tricky when you try to classify exactly where on the musical spectrum the dynamic duo's racket falls. "I guess psychedelic heavy metal punk rock? I don't know. People always say 'sludge rock,' which I always found to be lazy and kind of inaccurate," says drummer Coady Willis. "A lot of our songs are fast, and it's not like we're playing a half-assed Black Sabbath riff over and over again. That's been the struggle of the band. We're a band that doesn't really fit into what everyone else is doing."
With a new, dynamic demoing process leading to the creation of the most songs they've ever written for an album, The Beast You Are delivers 13 doses of uncategorizably heavy rock music. From the ominous death march of "The Moor You Know" to the soaring "Let Them Grind" to the delicate, ethereal "Under Everest," Big Business continues to defy listeners' expectations. No matter the context of their music, however, one thing remains true: They are definitely still a band.
