Noughties By Nature #92: And So I Watch You From Afar - S Is For Salamander

This isn't even out yet, but I guarantee that the day you hear it, it will change your life. Being crushingly heavy and spectacularly epic in equal proportions has become ASIWYFA's trademark and it's taken them into mainstream radio playlists where other instrumental acts have failed. S is For Salamander is the perfect example of said trademark. The opening riff alone is enough to sell this song as the utter brilliance that it is, but combine that with the briefest of brief mosh-pit fodder riffery in the middle, and top it off with the epic outro spliced together with handclaps and you've got the future definition of instrumental rock.
