Yeah, I like pinball machines but I've never played this one. Nonetheless, in a way, this is perfect pinball music, grabbing your full attention immediately and leading you through highly immersive ramps and blistering highlights. Once the ball starts rolling, you're in for a wicked ride along the tones of some awesome instrumentals. Opener 'Quake' immediately sets the tone with its fuzzed-out, groovy sound.
Yeah, I like Karma To Burn and yeah, that band is quite a good reference for these songs. Both bands play instrumental stoner rock, often with a psychedelic touch and plenty of energy. I really dig instrumental music and there are some quite uplifting ones here, including 'Aftershock', 'Navajo' and my favorite, the highly vivacious 'Tremors'. Some of these also remind me of our own, Belgian, stoner rock instrumentalists Sardonis', who are also damn heavy.
Yeah, and that's the last time I'll use that word in this review, this is stoner rock, loyal to and inspired by the vintage sound of bands like Clutch and Kyuss. There is little else to mention about this ep, so you'll have to take my word for it. Check it out and join us on this crazy road trip, ending apotheotically in closer 'Vesuvius'. I told you it was going to be hot in here...
