Signs Of Infinite Power
Released: 2009, Century Media
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Fu Manchu have been on the scene for a number of years and while their name may be familiar to you, is their music? For this reviewer I am slightly embarrassed to say that I fall into this category. I have heard the name but never the music, until now.
SIGNS OF INFINITE POWER is my introduction into the world of Fu Manchu music and my ears are better for it. This album is filled with some of the best guitar sounds you will find; it�s fuzzy, heavy and everything you love about a guitar all in one. As with a fair chunk of releases this day in age there is not allot that reaches out and grabs you and really sets itself apart from the pack. This sort of holds true for Fu Manchu and SIGNS OF INFINITE POWER except when compared to what we are accustomed to hearing on Rock Radio today this is much more refreshing to your ears. They are far from your corporate Rock band or flavour of the month. They can however be likened to a modern day early Sabbath.
A perfect album to put on if you want to sit back, relax and zone out for a bit. Stoner Rock at it�s finest.
