This record seems to have been played quite a lot in our office over the last couple of weeks. I don’t know if it’s that lots of people independently wanted to check it out or if there’s a secret stoner rock fiend (besides myself) in the office, or if it’s just because the pounding riffage and shameless weed rock cliches which have been packed into these six songs make for a generally agreeable and motivated work environment. Maybe it’s just because nighttime Post-It-leaver Brian has marked it “Quality stoner RAWK! Ace!” Whatever the reason, I’ve heard it a few times now, a rare privilege in a place where we largely have to review records whilst listening to them for the first time.
Anyway, on to the record. This is textbook bombastic stoner rock. Big metal riffs, chunky guitar tones, the occasional shredding solo but mostly just pendulous doom riffing action like Sabbath meets Fu Manchu meets The Fucking Champs or short-lived Leeds instru-metallers Death Hand Approaching. It’s pretty hackneyed in a way, it’s certainly all been done before, but the riffs are good and the songs are delivered with a real sense of exuberance and a lightness of touch which makes it a thoroughly entertaining listen. I bet they're fun live.
