Call them Stoner Metal, Psychedelic, Progressive or just plain Rock music. Whatever label you decide to categorize them in they will come out on top. ABRA KADAVAR is the band’s sophomore album and it is an incredibly strong release. Filled to overload with riffs and grooves it will have you mesmerized while kicking back and enjoying the tunes.
Heavily influenced by early Sabbath this trio from Germany are about to take the music world by storm. Taking the Sabbath influence and adding a modern element to it in order to make it their own is not an original idea but they pull it off better than anyone have previously. All the songs are your typical mid-tempo rockers with a 70’s sound to them. No modern slick production to be heard here which is a relief as that would kill the whole album vibe. This is meant to have a bit of grit to it and polished to the point of being fake.
This is an enjoyable release from start to finish with no duds on it but nothing grabs you either. All tracks are equally good and enjoyable to listen to. This is easily one of the greatest discoveries for me this year.
