The ageless template laid down by Black Sabbath has been borrowed, stolen, dismantled and rebuilt so many times over the last 40 or more years that it takes a band of singular merit to stand out from the doomed and stoned hordes. Led by former Barn Burner frontman Kevin Keegan (stop laughing, vintage football fans), Dead Quiet have thus far lived up to their name in terms of public profile, but the release of their second album, Grand Rites, looks certain to change that. One of the most imaginative but reassuringly bludgeoning examples of post-millennial Iommi-worship currently available to human ears, it provides strong evidence that Kevin is the next great stoner rock visionary. - https://www.loudersound.com/
Three piece psychedelic groove metal.
Flirting with the eyeliner rock era of Sunset Blvd., Electric Owl’s groovy sound channels the flare of glam metal while still serving the murky spirits of the psychedelic forest. A welcome addition to a traditionally heavy card, the velvet winged trio’s melodic harmonies, prodding percussion and noodling guitar leads soar above the battlefield and make for the clouds in perfect unison. - http://beatroute.ca
There is just about no letup offered across the seven-track/34-minute span of Hasteroid‘s Hashteroid, and even when a moment comes to catch your breath or at least think you might be able to start to, it doesn’t last, the Vancouver three-piece blazing at maximum speed through cuts like “Black Tide” and “Godspeed Below” with bull-in-china-shop subtlety and a difficult-to-pull-off blend of heavy rock and punk, shades of rawest Fu Manchu groove aligning themselves to the unrelenting forward drive one finds in the work of Zeke when one to keep up to find it at all. - http://theobelisk.net
