Current Rotation – 9/13/2012
This album came out of nowhere and completely blind sighted me. I’ve never been huge on instrumental rock. I’ve been known in the past though to like some instrumental albums here and there. One to add to the “like” list On The Steps Of The Temple by Temple.There’s something about the album. Maybe it’s the haunting and chilling tone or the dark and mysterious feeling. The mood that this album sets will give you chills down your spine. If you’re alone in abasement with no lights on, it’ll freak you out. It’s something else. If you like Pelican, you’ll be right at home with this one. Stream it below, listen, like and consume.
Now this one impresses me. The band is called Demonaut. They describe themselves as playing doom metal. When you first start up the album though, it’s more of a heavy, bluesy rock with some deep tones. As it goes along though, BAM, heavy crushing riffs. There’s elements of classic rock, stoner rock, blues rock, fuzz rock and of course, doom metal. While primarily a doom band, they do spread it out on their self titled album. At times they sound a bit like Red Fang, other times, perhaps a little Kylesa of Baroness. Yes, there is a bit of a sludge feeling in it, especially the song “Pretty Little Lamb” and “Fallen/Risen.”
I enjoyed this album a lot. This will be one to most certainly check out if you like your skull kicked in from the massive amount of heaviness and crushing riffss. Yeah, it’s so heavy, I added an extra “s.”
Writing about this album has been a long time in the making. First off, my apologies to the band for not writing something much much sooner. Now, where were we? Oh yeah. The tunes.Dead Wahines And Tsunamis
is the second release by Feuerzeug. It follows up their 2009 album Drive Fast And Crash
. Like the Drive Fast And Crash
, this album fucking slays. It’s heavy stoner rock with a very noticeable Kyuss influence. It’s one of those albums that makes you say “FUCK! I need more!” after listening to it. Besides the already mentioned style, this album is fast and in your face. The band does break it up to keep it interesting. For example, listen to the funky break down on “Evil Knievel Has Kissed The Devil.”
This album holds a lot. It’s huge. It’s a fucking massive fuzzball of heavy and entertaining tunes. It’s long too, well over an hour total. For some that may be to much music. For most though, it may not be enough. Trust me when I say you’ll like it and time won’t be an issue.
For fans of Kyuss, Dozer, Truckfighters, Monster Magnet, etc.
This is another one that I’ve sat on for awhile. The band is called Sorry For Nothing. The album is called Psycho Monster Resurrection
. I’ve listened to this album no less than 25 times at least not including the songs that came up on shuffle. Sorry For Nothing has a whole stoner metal with blues rock vibe going. At times you can hear some NWOBHM influence. I’d have to guess Iron Maiden as an influence amongst many others. The tempo is broken up from fast songs to slower songs and everything in between. The song order is made up perfectly so that it’s tough to start getting bored with the album. I like the somewhat different styles from song to song. “Messiah Test” has a killer solo in it for those who like guitar solos. The album isn’t heavy on them, they’re only in there where fit, and they do fit well. The artwork is pretty kick ass too.
This one is a keeper for sure. Check out the handful of tunes on their Facebook page, I think you’ll agree this is some serious kick ass music!
