A brand new video by West Virginia-based noise/stoner metal trio RHIN has just been completed and immediately dispatched by the aficionados of the underground at Cvlt Nation. Culled from their third album, Passenger, the video was filmed for the track \”Uncle Tuck\” by the band at their own House Of Tuck residence where the LP was recorded as well.
Issues Cvlt Nation with the \”Uncle Tuck\” video premiere, \”I love the hypnotic, psychedelic riffs of stoner metal, and the dirty blues of sludge, but I like them even better when they\’re mixed in the rebellious, chaotic blender that is noise! West Virginia\’s RHIN have a new album in the works entitledPassenger that will make you want to get all fucked up on moonshine and burn some shit!\”

Following their well-received 2014-released Bastard LP, the third album from RHIN sees the band delivering just under thirty-four minutes of pummeling new riffery. Passenger shows these three super talented dudes – bassist/vocalist Dom, drummer Ben, and guitarist Tuck — rip through seven tracks of grungy rock n\’roll reminiscent of The Melvins, Fu Manchu, The Sword, Unsane, and early Helmet. Tempos range from punk fast to doom slow and everything in between, while always keeping it ultra-heavy and catchy. Passenger was recorded in one day in October 2015 by Noel Mueller, in basically one take, resulting in an exceptionally live and legit sounding recording. The record was then mixed and mastered by Mueller, and fitted with artwork by Ben Proudman.
