Biffy Clyro - That Golden Rule

Rating: 4.5/5

That Golden Rule is the first highly-anticipated single from Biffy Clyro's fifth album Only Revolutions and it immediately sets the tone for things to come.

Immediately noticeable, are the heavy, thrashing riffs and thundering drums tha hint at a further progression into the metal genre for the Scottish three piece. This release feels almost like an amalgamation of the band's efforts in the past three years fusing the heavier, fast paced style of tracks like Saturday Superhouse and Get Fucked Stud from Puzzle with the grandeur and soaring chorus style of one-off single Mountains.

That Golden Rule is a blistering track with fantastic full-bodied “accent-vocals” and some intriguing lyrics, and despite a Kings of Leon-esque image change (see the video), the music hasn't suffered whatsoever.

That Golden Rule is released on 23rd August 2009
