P.O.D.’s Boom at 2:44

An absence of thrash never felt so loud

I like to listen to this one turned up to 11. It makes the four short bursts of instrumental silence in the third chorus beginning at 2:44 stand out to even greater effect. All of a sudden there’s nothing behind Sonny Sandoval shouting “Here comes the”, as if we’ve been momentarily Marshall-blasted into non-vocal deafness. And those four beats of anti-boom seem to reverberate in the track’s terse ending.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
