We met this band previously with their enjoyable Call of the Mammoth EP.
On this new release the band continue their warm, organic and massively chunky and fuzzy approach to the genre. The songs are like a friendlier, less-evil, more-welcoming version of Electric Wizard mixed with a bit of Melvins.
The band also seem bigger and better this time around, in pretty much every respect. The guitars are more in-your-face and the vocals more confident.
The riffs are big and the grooves are colossal. The guitars and charismatic vocals are frequently in perfect sync, complementing each other and creating songs that have real presence.
Occasionally the distortion fades somewhat and the band indulge in a bit of lazy, exploratory mood-setting with a casual solo over the lonesome bass, almost as an afterthought.
This album has personality, songs and giant riffs. What more do you want from this kind of band?
