Asteroid - II (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art 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 - III (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Asteroid - III (IMPORT) (CD)

Packaged in a digipak.

For the past ten years, Asteroid has been one of the trend setting bands in the independent psychedelic heavy rock community. With their origin in hard hitting stoner rock, they’ve constantly been adding more musical layers to evolve their own unique brand of rock. With inspiration taken from American and British Blues and Swedish folk music, the three piece always bring something new and fresh to the table.

Asteroid - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art 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) Cover Art 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) Cover Art 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) Cover Art 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) Cover Art 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.
