Asteroid - II (IMPORT) (CD)

Die-cut album cover.

You listen to an Asteroid album, and while you’re in it, the music relaxes you to a barely conscious state. You hear the laid back fuzz tones and feel as though you might melt in them. Asteroid’s infectious style is in full force on their sophomore album but their growth is also readily apparent.

Asteroid - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD)



With their self-titled debut, the Swedish three-piece still pledges fealty to the House of Homme, Garcia, Reeder, and Bjork, but that’s more an issue of tonality. As was the case with the split CD, Asteroid is as thick as mud and as dense as fog (similar to the Truckfighter's Gravity X). Even quieter songs like “Water” seem to be enveloped in an atmospheric smoke. There’s plenty of killer tracks here. Both bassist Johannes Nilsson and guitarist/organist Robin Hirse sing, and their different styles (one’s in a lower register and the other brings to mind a less accented Klaus Meine) blend well together and give the music a stronger identity.

Asteroid has constructed an excellent slab of somewhat eccentric underground heaviness here, replete with melody, harmony, and enough chewy fuzz and heavy bass/drum interplay to make any fan of progressive desert goodness faint with delight. Enthusiasts of Mammoth Volume, Stonewall Noise, or labelmates Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra, not to mention others in the Fuzz Kingdom like Truckfighters, Sergeant Sunshine, Firestone, or Blowback will deem Asteroid's new self-titled an essential purchase.

Asteroid/Blowback - Split CD (IMPORT) (CD)



This CD is about as traditional stoner rock as it gets. First up is Asteroid. This power trio has a more retro feel to their Kyuss-inspired riffs. Singer/guitarist Robin Hirse’s delivery is reminiscent of Klaus Maine, and it gives these guys distinction. When the band really hits its stride, as on the last two tracks, Asteroid creates some plenty righteous stoner rock.

If Asteroid mines the ‘70s for inspiration, Blowback opts for a heavier, more swaggering sound. “Holy Skies” ought to be the theme song for some twisted yet charismatic shaman, one that preaches prophecy and doom while handing out Peyote buttons. It’s just that cool. “Invisible Touch,” their finale is an acoustic, guitar-only instrumental that verges on the Zeppelin. After the near-impenetrable wall of fuzz of the previous 11 songs, it’s an excellent coda. The Asteroid/Blowback split is a winner.

Asteroid are first delivering their fuzzed out heavy rock mixed up with 70's Swedish prog influences. Robin Hirse displays some very mellow and hazy guitar playing at times and it's during these moments this band feels the best to me. Taking care of the second part of this split are Blowback, who in my opinion released last year's best demo. They return with a slightly altered approach to their Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and November influenced stonerrock. They are harder, fuzzier and singer Stefan sounds like in heavy need of a Prozac-sandwich. The desperation in this man’s voice sends shivers up my spine and fits this kind of music perfectly. Very cool to hear that he has started to explore the depths of his voice and mind, adding some very memorable moments to this recording. The melodies, nerve and tight delivery this band lays down leaves no one unmoved. I've seen them without problems holding their own playing with bands like Generous Maria, Stonewall Noise Orchestra and Firestone.

Although being classified as stonerrock seems to be taboo nowadays, Asteroid could quite possibly change some opinions. They have mastered both the slow, spacey, and somewhat plodding rhythms along with mid tempo desert-esque style we are familiar with in this genre. Usually, they do so within the same song. As such there really isn't any point where you get bored as the songs seem to evolve naturally.

Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra - If Light Can't Save Us I Know Darkness Will (IMPORT) (CD)



If Light Can't Save Us, I Know Darkness Will is a pessimist's wet dream, replete with references to failed mental states, insecurities, regret, broken promises, futility, and plain old misery. And yet musically, you'd never tell. Sure, there's an undercurrent of sorrow here and there, but more often than not the band's too peppy to be anything but uplifting. It's a neat trick, one that's almost as subtle as the layering going on in the songs. Dexter Jones' has always been more about composition and nuance than competing with the beer drinkers and hell raisers of the world. And with If Light Can't Save Us..., you're in for a real treat. The band makes use of every instrument, with multiple guitar parts weaving in and out on top of a solid yet extremely fluid rhythm section. Assemble together, it's thoughtful, intricate music that's forward moving enough to still rock.

Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra - Side by Side (IMPORT) (CD)



Dexter Jones’ Circus Orchestra has always been about nuance, not brute force, and Side by Side shows an even stronger grasp of songwriting. It’s not just their innate sense of melody, but also in the playing. The three guitarists rarely blend together; rather, they all have distinct voices within each song. Combined with the strong vocals, you get a chorus of harmonies. There’s an incredible depth to their songwriting, which allows the music to be intricately layered without sounding sterile or clinical. While lyrically the band runs towards the dour, the music remains beautiful and uplifting. There’s plenty to recommend with Side by Side. One of this year’s best for sure.

Durango Riot, The - Telemission (IMPORT) (CD)



Europe – and God love 'em for this – has never been ashamed of a little stoner rock. Back in the Old Country they've been coming up with new ways to fuzz a riff. While the results don't always offer much in the way of true originality, they still do the job of giving some rock 'n' roll kicks. Sweden's Durango Riot is the latest in a long, long line of these types of bands... their Sunset Strip take on the Queens of the Stone Age formula... does a damn good job. For a new band with a debut album, they're off to a riotous start.

Telemission has become a pretty nice varied album with a tasteful mixture of rock 'n' roll, stoner, punk and garage rock. In short this is exactly the kind of rock music girls love to hear: you can dance to it, it is not too muscular, it is full of sexy elements and the boys can go nuts as well. You will find anything between up-tempo rockers to bluesy garage rock supported by mouth organ and saxophone.

Stake-Off the Witch - Medusa (IMPORT) (CD)



Stake-off the Witch is a band that can hardly be enclosed in just one well-defined and specific genre. Surely the basis of their music is the one of stoner rock, reminding of patriarchs like Kyuss, Slo Burn, Unida, Monster Magnet, but echoing multiple and various influences that makes it difficult to confine them in a precise current. The result is a music with a monolithic sound, heartened by dynamic and hypnotic riffs and made more intriguing by seducing psychedelics: the impact is strong, characterized by sonorities alternatively dark and deep or brilliant and psychotic.

Truckfighters - Gravity X (IMPORT) (CD)



Gravity X is solid, classic stoner rock. The songs are riff-centric, guitar driven numbers, with the desert rock vibes of Kyuss and the catchy writing of Dozer. Their brand of heavy is classic and catchy, and Gravity X is a great release.

I have to say it's asskickin from the first til the closing song. No weak tracks, fat fuzzy production, great riffs and some fresh ideas to make this even more attractive.

Truckfighters - Gravity X/Phi (Color) (IMPORT) (LP Box Set)

Triple vinyl deluxe box set. Each vinyl is on a different color: yellow, red and black.

Gravity X is solid, classic stoner rock. The songs are riff-centric, guitar driven numbers, with the desert rock vibes of Kyuss and the catchy writing of Dozer. Their brand of heavy is classic and catchy, and Gravity X is a great release.

If Gravity X took stoner rock back to ground zero, Phi is the band's first step forward. With the basic structure defined on Gravity X, Truckfighters is now able to stretch out and add new flourishes to their songwriting. Phi broach the melodic, layered territory of Mammoth Volume and Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra. The band still knows how to lay down the fuzz, though, tracks that swing straight at you with an almost ungodly rumble of distortion. Make no mistake, Truckfighters has once again delivered with Phi. If you're a fan of their previous work, you'll find this one to your liking.

Truckfighters - Hidden Treasures of Fuzz (IMPORT) (LP)

Limited edition of only 500 numerated copies on color vinyl.

In 2011, Truckfighters celebrate 10 years of fuzz making. Hidden Treasure of Fuzz - the Anniversary of the Century! marks the first step in the journey of the band. It is groovy, heavy, with one hell of a fuzzy sound. These songs were simply too good to be kept as demo releases. Compared to the modern way of Truckfighters, the songs on this release are a bit more classic stoner rock. From the start the band had its copyrighted groove unique riffs and a special sense for melodies.

Truckfighters - Mania (IMPORT) (CD)



Take the best of today’s modern rock like Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters and Wolfmother and mix it with more progressive bands like Opeth, Mars Volta, Fantomas.

Mania, their third full-length, sees Truckfighters confirming the suspicions raised by 2007’s Phi and proving they are next in a line of spectacular Swedish stoner bands including the likes of Spiritual Beggars, Dozer (of course), The Awesome Machine, and Mammoth Volume; acts who’ve managed to remain true to their sound and the traditions of their genre, but still push the limits of expectation and become wholly unique and mature, furthering themselves and the scene as a whole for their effort. It is illustrious company, and Truckfighters deserve to be in it. Rather than move away from stoner rock, they’re taking stoner rock with them, and that is the mark of truly innovative heaviness.

There’s really no telling where they can go from here, but in whatever direction they do head, either more progressive or toward more simplistic fuzzy ground, Truckfighters have reached a new career-high with Mania. One hopes this isn’t their apex, but even if it is, and even if they never do anything else, Mania is enough to last a lifetime. Absolutely necessary. Mandatory. Stop reading and buy it.

There are bloody chunks of fuzz a-plenty, but there is also a more mature and adept emphasis on composition and ensemble playing. The tuneage comes across as thoughtful, melody-rich and dynamic, but chockablock with heaviness and passion as well. Mix n’ match Swedish distortion lords Dozer with the more progressive styling of fuzz-prog daddies Mammoth Volume.

Truckfighters are one of THE best stonerrock bands around these days, if not one of the best ever.

Truckfighters - The Chairman (IMPORT) (10 inch)



"The Chairman" is the band’s first release in four years, so even more interesting to hear how they’ve progressed in that time from the riffy contemplations of Mania, and “The Chairman” finds the Örebro trio working in jazzy noodling guitars with the expected blast of energetic groove and underlying melody.

"Desert Cruise" was recorded live in Australia.

Yet, in the end it always is the fuzzed-out mania that defines them. Edition on clear vinyl!

Truckfighters - Universe (IMPORT) (CD)



In the past decade, Truckfighters have become one of the most instantly recognizable stoner bands in the world. Ever since Josh Homme admitted these guys are undoubtedly 'the best band that ever existed' on their 2011 documentary, Fuzzomentary, their popularity doubled (at the very least). Still, giving credit where is due, the group's catchy as hell and flawless sound contributed equally. Both powerful and melodic, their fuzz-drenched tunes are accessible for the entire stoner fans spectrum. Moreover, their wild live shows have caught the attention of those who didn't initially bother listening to the records. Now, after exhaustively touring the world multiple times since Mania hit the streets back in 2009, the Swedish heroes return with Universe, their most complex effort yet.

In order to make sure they keep everyone interested until the last second, they have brought every trick up their sleeves and laid it to tape, thus creating a shorter, more concise album. Nevertheless, the groovy riffing and the melodic vocals that define their work is present as always. Shorter tracks like 'Mind Control', 'Dream Sale' or 'Prophet' will surely win those listeners who don't have the patience to dig the more expansive numbers. Each of these brings a slightly different side of the band, whether the straightforward rocking of the former, 'Prophet''s subdued grooves or the latter's gentle swaying, that rapidly shifts into ramming riff attacks. It's hard not to immerse yourself into the Truckfighters universe when they effortlessly churn such infectious music.

Since 'Chameleon' saw the light of day on the second release, Phi, the Swedish trio have made a conscious decision to expand their songs, in order to avoid redundancy. Universe features a string of mammoths ready to crush your PA, the most notable being 'The Chairman' and 'Mastodont'. Both feature staccato guitar leads intertwined with some cool bass/drum rhythms, while the vocals beautifully accompany them. They leave a lot of room for interplay, however, they don't jump into true progressive territory, only making a few steps in before returning to the murky, bonecrushing jamming. 'Mastodont' grows a bit too close to the aforementioned 'Chameleon', but distances itself with multiple segments that show how much can these guys play within their comfort zone. Also, at some point, the nice horn section present past the 9-minute mark suddenly gives way to a lovely, gentle, album closing acoustic guitar picking.
