"Listen to Mr. Plow, that’s their name! That name again is Mr. Plow! Ok, so I have been meaning to write this review for at least a week. I have listened to Maintain Radio Silence about 8 times before writing this review. Why, you might ask? Because I was desperately trying to find something wrong with it. And there isn’t much. I had never heard of Mr. Plow before this album came across my lap. According to their Facebook page, this is the first album since 2006’s Asteroid 25399. They’re definitely a strong band with great tone, heavy riffs and a driving sound that any fan of the stoner rock sub-genre should add to their library." -- Metal Nation.com
Mr. Plow formed in 1997 when Kyuss and Fu Manchu were blowing out speakers in car systems across the land. When the term “stonerrock” was joining the lexicon for music writers who needed a category for riff-based rock that was tuned down and turned up. The band were influenced heavily by the times, but sought a different direction lyrically–instead of dark and evil, they went for pop-culture references and hooky riffs. Mr. Plow was way less about skulls and satanic imagery, and way more about good times that would be the soundtrack for summer trips to the beach or skatepark.
