“Fought The Devil” comes from Danny Matos’ forthcoming full-length album, The Tarmac. The track sees him joined by vocalist, Joie Giordano, while Rusty Mack (of Harry Fraud’s Surf School) and The Red Walrus worked on the backdrop. The Tarmac comes out on digital retailers and major streaming outlets on Friday, August 26.
“Fought The Devil” opens tinkling yet foreboding, punctuated by ominous twin lead guitar. The rattle of the drum like a coiling snake, ready to attack venomously. The lyrics ponder life, particularly the darker side, things like isolation and deep sadness. The raps really accentuate the claps of the drum, a real head nodder.
