This past week, The Final Clause Of Tacitus returned with a new EP called ‘Not Like The Rest’. Based out of Reading, the EP sees the funk metallers serve six groove-filled tracks that are reminiscent of Rage Against The Machine and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Songs such as ‘Tables Turn’ and ‘Bad For Your Health’ sees TFCOT give funk rock/metal a fresh lick of paint for 2018 with glowing results.
With a sound that isn’t afraid to delve into the past, we asked The Final Clause Of Tacitus to curate a playlist of songs they consider as influential. From soul legends to rap-metal classics and 90’s rock standouts.
Smashing Pumpkins – Siva
Tom: We love the loud/quiet and energetic/calm dynamics. It proves songs don’t have to be all energy to be great
Wolfmother – Colossal
Tom: Awesome riff and a great example of a Wolfmother song. They do great instrumentals and don’t need to put in guitar solos, which, I love.
Arcane Roots – In This Town of Such Weather
Tom: The chords and timings seem odd on there own, but put together make up an incredible song. Arcane Roots are one of my favourite bands at the moment.
Beastie Boys – No Sleep Till Brooklyn
Tom: Unapologetically boisterous. I also boss this song at karaoke.
HED (P.E) – Crazy Legs
Matt: Funky bass line with just the best “in your face” lyrics ever.
Skindred – Babylon
Matt: This was the first Skindred song I heard and just sums up their unique sound.
James Brown – Papas Got a Brand New Bag
Matt: Because he is the king of funk!
Deftones – Back to School
Andy: I love this song and the video. Smooth slick rap style with a hauntingly catchy hook.
Limp Bizkit – Nookie
Andy: Good old cheese rap-metal with a catchy as hell chorus!
HED (P.E) – Renegade
Matt: Love the scream rap style Jahred pulls off in this sick song!
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Can’t Stop
Matt: Great song, great video. Enough said.
Rage Against The Machine – Bulls On Parade
Matt: This was the first Rage song I ever heard. It has so much attitude and a timeless classic!
‘Not Like The Rest’ EP by The Final Clause Of Tacitus is out now.
