"They offer up a simple six-course meal of no bullshit, thick-as-a-brick heavy rock that's inspired by the usual '70's suspects (Deep Purple, Sabbath), a couple of left fielders (Cactus, Neil Young), and fits squarely in the “stoner” sub-category.

The definition of said genre stretches far and wide these days, but Cortez manages to tie it all together and claim it as their own. Put it this way - “Lost Control” has the menacing, rumbling heft of Orange Goblin whereas the anthemic “Stone the Bastards” brings to mind fellow label mates Generous Maria, and yet in the context of Thunder in a Forgotten Town, it still sounds like five dudes from New England who're banging out some honest heavy. Honestly good too."

"Somewhere in Boston, five friends have laid down six mammoth tracks of fuzz rock action with a lot of smoking stoner grooves on a metallic plate. I was immediately struck by the power vocals, Curtis sounds a bit like Dan Kerzwick (Sixty Watt Shaman) and Neil Fallon (Clutch). The music on Thunder In A Forgotten Town flows real well from song to song and has the right amount of groove that retains your attention til the last minute."

"With “Thunder in a Forgotten Town” the Bostonians that make up Cortez deliver a solid stoner album. There’s nothing on here that you haven’t heard before from bands like Kyuss, Fu Manchu or even High On Fire, but they’re doing a pretty decent job of cranking up the guitars and churning out some doomy riffs along with more solo action than any single man with access to internet porn will see. Add a singer who more than knows how to handle himself to the equation and you’re looking at another fun release on the best – if not only – Belgian stoner label, Buzzville Records."

This self-titled album is big on fuzz, even bigger on grooves but is jam-packed with different variations both stylistically and in terms of arrangement.
