Because that exactly what Buffalo Theory MTL stands for. Influenced by good ol' fashioned thrash metal and by the popular TV show 'Cheers', they decided to start a stoner rock band. In fact, the bandname comes from a scene from that exact show (watch). Now, these Canadians (because 'MTL' stands for 'Montreal') have released an ep upon the world, one which will raise alcohol consumption everywhere they perform.
The ep opens with the heavy rocker 'Conspiracy In Paranoland'. This track clearly shows what these guys do. It reminds of something between Anthrax and Kuyss, combined with hardcore punk vocals. It's the perfect opener for this ep too, because many people will definitely favorite this one, certainly in a live setting. So do I by the way, but that doesn't mean that the rest of the songs are inferior.
'Punishment', for example, thrives of these awesome thrash metal riffs, indicating a fast song. But no, suddenly the drums come in and the whole thing seems slower than it is. Yet, the dynamics and energy remain the same. Title track 'Skeptic Knight' digs deeper into metal history by coming up with some great Black Sabbath meet Pantera riffs. This is in fact the most doomy track here and perhaps my favorite.
So yeah, if you're in for half an our of headbanging bliss, you might want to chech this one out. If you worship the mighty power of the riff, more specifically the thrash, stoner and doom metal ones, you can't deny this. Well, you can but you probably shouldn't. Go ahead, make yourself happy and blast this bunch of buffalos through your speakers. You know you want to.
