Ararat/Solodolor - Split 10 inch (IMPORT) (10 inch)

Limited edition of only 1000 copies. Artwork by Malleus. Solodolor features members from Porn, Los Natas and Santoro. Ararat is the solo project of Sergio CH. of Los Natas.

Solodolor is a project that saw the light in 2006 during the production of the Los Natas recording sessions of El Hombre Montana. Producer Billy Anderson and Natas lead guitarist Sergio Ch. had some free time on their hands and while jamming they invited friends to join them. By the end of the night songs had taken form and after rehearsing a bit, several songs were recorded. This project consists of bassist Billy Anderson (Porn, Blessing the Hogs), guitarist Sergio Ch (Los Natas, Santoro), drummer Rowek (V8, Rata Blanca, Nativo), and vocalist El Topo (Santoro, Eight Hands For Kali). These guys just wanted to have fun jamming, but what crawled out of their inspiration were some awesome metal tunes inspired by heavy and death metal, loud old school hardcore punk and everything in between that will blast your ears.

Sergio Ch., lead guitarist and head honcho of the Argentinean stoner band Los Natas, talked his good friend El Topo (Santoro, Eight Hands For Kali) into joining him to record some songs. The result is the Los Natas Ararat sessions droning cult psychodelic music Toba Trance style with some weird vocals put into them.

Artimus Pyledriver - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD)



What you get with this Georgia five-piece is pure hell yeah rawk. Artimus Pyledriver fall (or collapse drunkenly) in that same niche of freakishly good rock as RPG and Throttlerod. The recipe’s easy enough – mix two parts AC/DC with one part Lynrd Skynrd and add a touch of Nazareth. Dave Slocum sings with Brian Johnson-like coarseness while the rest of the band churns out nine different versions of kick-ass. The production, done by the band, Matt Washburn, and Dave Angstrom, is how rock albums should sound. It’s polished enough that you can hear each respective instrument, but not to the point where the band lose its natural grittiness.

Fantastic band, fantastic production and if you like your music somewhere between Sludge like Mugwart and Metal like Alabama Thunderpussy and vocals which sound like a mixture between Angry of Rose Tattoo and Brian of AC/DC...then brothers and sisters this album is a must buy for you...highly recommended.

Cabron - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD)



A very tight, concrete, energetic and driven sound which creates a cross mix between Queens of the Stone Age and AC/DC. Solid rock is what these guys have to offer.

Cortez - Thunder in a Forgotten Town (IMPORT) (CD)



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.

Cowboys & Aliens - A Trip to the Stonehenge Colony (IMPORT) (CD)



Cowboys & Aliens have a unique sound of melodic vocals and hard rock riffs. From chugging along to steady hard hitting rock and roll... Mostly just straight forward...along the same lines of Clutch or Unida, nice and heavy with good singing.

The first thing I took notice of when this CD started spinning in my CD- player was Henk V.´s vocals... think a cross between John Garcia and Robert Plant, it´s one of the better voice´s in this genre I´ve heard in a long time. And Cowboys & Aliens aren´t bad when it comes to the musical side either... they´re just as good, or even a bit better, as some of the bands from Holland like Celestial Season 7Zuma7 and Candybar Planet.

Cowboys & Aliens - Love, Sex, Volume (IMPORT) (CD)



The first thing I took notice of was Henk V.´s vocals... think a cross between John Garcia and Robert Plant, it´s one of the better voice´s in this genre I´ve heard in a long time. And Cowboys & Aliens aren´t bad when it comes to the musical side either... they´re just as good, or even a bit better, as some of the bands from Holland like Celestial Season, 7Zuma7 and Candybar Planet.

This CD is classic rock riff heavy, often reminding me of some of the progressive qualities of bands like Operator Generator or Spirit Caravan. The songs are all headbanging numbers that have driving tempos similar to Orange Goblin. The vocals are very melodic and strong and paint over the overdriven guitar textures nicely. It seems that Cowboys and Aliens have their own little formula for writing hard rock tunes- and is reflection in every song. Let's just say that they are definitely carving their own ideas out of classic rock. Great stuff if you are into bands like Unida, Orange Goblin Nebula...Hard riff rock and good times seems to be the attitude taken on by Cowboys and Aliens...nothing wrong with that. File this one near Time Traveling Blues.

Deville - Come Heavy Sleep (IMPORT) (CD)



While the tell-tale Swedish rock aesthetic is prevalent throughout all 13 tracks, the four-piece manages to push out some heavier than expected moments, as on “Black Dawn” and “Rise Above.” Both tracks have a rumbling tone that falls between the syrup of Acid King and the pile-driving mayhem of Black Cobra and are immediate highlights of Come Heavy Sleep. There's a bit of radio sensibility – in both the vocals and the composition - to Deville as well. Come Heavy Sleep does the job of laying down some kick ass stoner rock. Lots of good songs on this one.

The C.O.C., as well as the KYUSS desert rock influences are continuously present, evidenced by the warm grooves that reverberate throughout the disc. Add a little bit of a 90's alt rock flavor, (SOUNDGARDEN, NIRVANA, etc…) and you've pretty much nailed the DEVILLE sound.

Take some groovy rhythms, buzzing guitars and tight drumming and slap a whole bunch of guitar solos on it and use the word ‘baby’ a lot and you’re looking at an album that will help get every self-respecting stoner fan through the day. Yes, the spirit of Kyuss shines strong in this one, young Padawan. But there’s more shining on this album here… these guys aren’t afraid to take their foot off of the gas pedal every now and then – like on “Sweet Blood” - and the result is just as impressive as everything else on “Come Heavy Sleep”.

Deville - Hail the Black Sky (IMPORT) (CD)



While spinning the new Deville album Hail the Black Sky, I had an overwhelming urge to lie down on the carpet and make a (what I like to call) Fuzz Angel. Somewhat similar to a Snow Angel only you flap your arms very fast until you build up enough static electricity to power a small car, then run around screaming "RELEASE THE FUZZ!!!". Typical Saturday night at my house. Anyhow... Hail the Black Sky definitely releases the fuzz, delivering a nonstop barrage of catchy hooks and memorable riffs. Any track from Hail the Black Sky wouldn't sound out of place sandwiched in between a Foo Fighters and a Queens of the Stone Age song, making fans of those bands say, "What the hell was that?, That rules!!".

Electric Red - In This Machine (IMPORT) (CD)



Musically Electric Red pull from a broad range of musical styles to create their impressive wall of crunch. The early 90's New York post-hardcore sound of Quicksand and Helmet is still a prime jumping off point as off beat rhythms play alongside big slabs of distorted guitar but it's also possible to detect the more textural elements of bands such as Mastodon or Baroness mixed up with the pummelling stoner pop of Torche. The band also claim influence from bands such as Kyuss and Clutch which may be less evident but does manifest itself in the huge grooves they find themselves falling into.

Generous Maria - Command of the New Rock (Re-issue) (IMPORT) (CD)

Bonus tracks taken from their 7" Crawl Back in, Tungt Svenskt and the Snake Oil Supercharm compiliation.

When first released, Command of the New Rock was a competent example of a budding rock scene, but the ...2005 Edition can easily be described as “classic” stoner rock. It’s got all the hallmarks of what gave the genre its identity – an equal love of Monster Magnet, Fu Manchu, and Kyuss, thick, fuzzy riffs, and grooves so thick you could insulate your walls with ‘em. And based on the four bonus tracks – the impetus for those who got the original to pick up the ...2005 Edition – Generous Maria have no inclination to change what they’re doing. If you’re looking for a record that helped define what stoner rock is all about you should check out Command of the New Rock – 2005 Edition.

A mix of the heavyness of Black Sabbath and the groove of Grand Funk Railroad.

Like a Led Zeppelin in symbiosis with Kyuss.

Generous Maria - Electricism (IMPORT) (CD)

Artwork by Malleus. Christian Smedström (The Awesome Machine) plays additional guitar on “Precious and Grace”.

Generous Maria’s follow up to 2002’s Command of the New Rock shows the band abandoning the more traditional stoner rock sound for an edgier, more straightforward hard rock approach. “The Chilling Effect,” “Sheer Violence,” and “Out of My Head” best exemplify the band’s new focus on driving rock. There’s a vague sense of AC/DC worship as well. There’s some good stuff here and the band deserves commendation for not covering old ground.

A mix of the heaviness from Black Sabbath with the groove of Grand Funk Railroad.

Heavy neoblues with Black Sabbath Stooges and Tom Waits as common denominators.

Glowsun - The Sundering (IMPORT) (CD)



Glowsun is definitely at home in the territory which is controlled by Kyuss and Dozer. They've integrated a tasteful 70's vibe into their sound without mutating into a retro band. The band writes songs that blend and balance heavy and progressive rock for a varied sound that allows them not only to follow the same formula. This is the main difference to a band like Kyuss, but sometimes it's the riff that dominates the song as in 'Barbarella' which is more straight-forward, but this three guys mostly have an ace up one's sleeve and surprise the listener with an unexpected change. The guitar fills the atmosphere nicely ranging from heavy fuzz-driven riffs to soulful wah-wah excursions.

Gonzalez - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD)



Gonzalez kind of has that sort of driving sound that Fu Manchu has going for them, but this has a bit more down deep soul. Get this CD if you are into the party rock that you can bang your head to and still be able to do keg chuggs in between songs... There is some Sabbath worship for sure, but that says alot here right? This is a decent CD and if you like jams something like Fireball Ministry meets Fu meets Sabbath then get it...good, decent down home rock.

Gonzalez are the groove-soul mean machine, the electro boogie pinball wizards with grooves so thick they can scoop out mountains and the back beat that demands four hips to move in all the right directions. Gonzalez songs sprawl out like sleazy Cadillacs muscling their way to midnight under a sky full of mirror balls; a cocky, snake eyed slink that tastes of James Gang and War on the hair pin turns but the monster-trucking stone groove that fuels Gonzalez machine is all Rock! Refugees from the hardcore wars Gonzalez are recovering punks with a solid pedigree of mid 70's riff-rock.

Kube - Stockholm Syndrom (IMPORT) (CD)



Stockholm Syndrome is a mixture of up and mid tempo stoner songs, enriched with plenty of great riffs! The fact that a trio can create such a wall of sound surprises me again and again.

A pumping vibe, a CD which makes you take your car, open the windows and drive with the pedal to the metal. Wicked humour, raging venom and twisted unanswered love injected songs are spewed upon us with such hate and frustration. Kube is ready to let us know what is going on in their minds in ten songs that leave you no moment of rest. Unless you count the instrumentals 'Army On My Side' or 'Orgy' as a pausing of the steamy grooves. The first one being a mesmerizing riff swelling bigger and faster every minute, the second being as sticky, sweaty and gluey as the best scenes from Spartacus or I, Claudius. It surely honours the name of the track! The vocals are great and I like the double vocals/singing in a song like 'Motivation'. A great debut from these Belgians, who are sure to be killer on stage!

Mezzanine - American Burnout (IMPORT) (CD)



Now this is a shockingly good rock 'n' roll record! For the most part the songs are remarkably similar to those on Corrosion of Conformity's America's Volume Dealer but that's not Mezzanine's entire schtick. There are also epic Red Giant space rock songs as well as mellow accoustic jams thrown in for a nice diversity. If you dig the southern boogie of Raging Slab and Corrosion of Conformity then you'll surely dig American Burnout by Mezzanine.

Mezzanine share a lot with post-Blind era Corrosion of Conformity: a sense of dirty Southern groove, hoarse yet melodic vocals, and an overall loose feel.

American Burnout is a great record in the vein of C.O.C Black Label Society and other bands that have that particular southern feel in their music. It has been a while since a record has put a spell on me and American Burnout is such a record.

Mogul - Build Me a Hunchback (IMPORT) (CD)



Unida, Hermano, Monster Magnet and Kyuss fans, please pay attention to the following! From Belgium hails this new sensational stoner rock band Mogul! Good old fashioned stoner rock with the cosmic approach to songs and melodies. I cannot discover one flaw on this record.

Build Me A Hunchback is just another plain ol' good rock album!! Just like Kyuss and Monster Magnet used to make 'em. So what else is there to say, besides comparing? The guitars fuzz the shit out of ya, the vocals are great (a friend of mine heard it, and thought it was a new Hermano album), the drums are what they should be and more and the bassplayer knows his stuff and adds some nice extra tones to the album! Personal favourite, being a stoner, is the last song on the album. Josh Homme himself could have written it. I love this stuff!!

Sideburn - The Newborn Sun (IMPORT) (CD)



Sideburn chases the '70's arena gods – Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin predominantly, but you can pick up scant traces of Uriah Heep and Mountain here and there as well. Given the current year and the band's age it's not surprising that Sideburn's take on that style is also fairly bombastic.

Solenoid - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD)



Now, that's an opener. Opening song 'Out in the Cold' sounds like an unpolished collaboration between Motörhead and Orange Goblin, and sets the expectations for the rest of the album high. And most of those pay off. The influences of the first song stand firm, albeit that the emphasis is put more and more on stoner and technical metal. With catchy songs, wailing leads, lots of variation (listen to the very heavy metal in Slayin'!) and excellent vocals Solenoid may very well become the pole bearer of Belgian stoner. In any case they leave their most famous brothers in the genre, Cowboys and Aliens, miles behind.

First and foremost there are two guitarists who, apart from solid riffs, apparently manage to play fantastic dueling guitars and fierce solos without a hint of effort, without ending up in endless noodling. The drummer and bass player at hand are pounding like madmen and singer Frank Homolka has humungous pipes. But the genre itself has a lot to be excited about too. Songs like 'Out in the Cold' and 'Down the Dream' are fast adrenaline bombs with strong riffs, which make me shake my fists in the air and swill down imaginary pints, even when I'm behind my shitty computer. God damn!

The band knows how to lay back and in those cases brew heavy loads of music with reminiscences of solid stoner rock. At times there is also metal like Iron Maiden or Anvil on the record and personally, I think there is a lot that reminds me of the Dutch band Powervice, unfortunately disbanded too early. Whatever the blueprint or setup for a song is, whether it's stoner, thrash metal, dirty rock or what have you, the whole record bursts with intensity, power and craftmanship. Whoever likes steaming stoner rock, metal and balls out rock 'n' roll and therefore the later work of Alabama Thunderpussy better buy Solenoid right away.

Space Probe Taurus - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD)



Although their name was inspired by an obscure cult movie from 1965, the chief musical inspiration behind Sweden's Space Probe Taurus is that same decade's psychedelic acid-fuzz space rock and metal, as resurrected and synthesized in the 1990s by New Jersey's infamous Monster Magnet.

It doesn't matter if it's 2001 or 2008, Space Probe Taurus is still going to let loose with some Monster Magnet-influenced psychedelic garage rock. The band may lack Dave Wyndorf's lyrically flair, but musically they do an admirable job of following in the Jersey band's footsteps.
