No. 42: Daughters, ‘The Theatre Goer’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs

Hydra Head

When Daughters were still an active band, they made one of the ballsiest decisions in metal history. Vocalist Alexis Marshall changed his vocal approach from harsh grindcore screaming to a style that can be accurately described as Jerry Lee Lewis on hallucinogenic drugs. However, the change was embraced by Daughters’ fans, especially on their 2010 self-titled album.

‘The Theatre Goer’ is one of the most bizarre and genuinely distinct tracks in experimental metal. The distant, yet heavy nature of the song is somewhat hypnotic and lures you into an uncomfortable dimension. The song is best experienced with your full immersion, so put on some huge-ass headphones and prepare to drift with Daughters.
