Alekhine's Gun, "Gutwrench"

I haven't watched Orange is the New Black yet, but I've been a fan of actor Jessica Pimental for years. In particular, I like her work in ferocious Brooklyn death metal band Alekhine's Gun.

Named for a destructive chess position (two rooks and the queen lined up on the same file), Alekhine's Gun is a regular murderous force in New York City venues. I love Pimental's howl on the aptly-titled "Gutwrench." It's not hard to imagine her playing a hard-boiled subject of America's prison system, though I pity the guard or cellmate who crosses her.
