Top 20 of 2011 – Bill’s Picks

Well it’s that time of year again. Time to name my favorite albums of 2011. 2011 brought us a lot of good stuff by a lot of great bands. 2011 also brought on a lot of surprises from bands that were really unknown until their material was released or well afterwards. Bandcamp played a huge role in music discovery for me. It turned out hundreds of great albums not only released in 2011 but in years past as well. This list, my favorites as well as honorable mentions, is no way a complete list of what was released this year. There is just to much out there that I don’t either have time to get to, never heard of or won’t discover until well after this year is completely over. I know there’s going to be a few surprises. Let it be known that I listened to a LOT of new albums this year and picking my top 20 out of the hundreds was very hard to do.

20. The Sade – Damned Love – (review) I really didn’t know what to expect when this one came across my desk but I needed to check it out. And check it out I did. I was pretty damn impressed that I listened to the album at least 10 times in a row. In my review I stated “The majority of the album is all alchchol fueled hard rock. Throughout my listening of the album I couldn’t help but think that this is what Social Distortion may sound like if they were more rooted in 70′s hard rock as opposed to their punk roots.” Granted it’s been a few months since I’ve listened to it, it still has a strong spot in my top 20.

Review – 1000mods – Super Van Vacation

1000mods are back and this time with an album full of new material. The band’s last release was a 7″ called Liquid Sleep. While Liquid Sleep was great, it lacked length from an EP or a full length. Well the band has fixed that with their first full length, an hour long masterpiece called Super Van Vacation.

I was stoked when I came across the email about this. Super Van Vacation is an hour of heavy and hard hitting stoner rock. In the past they’ve been compared to greats such as Kyuss and Karma To Burn and The Truckfighters. Well that holds true once again and 1000mods are again proving they’re ready and willing to run with the ball. The album opens with the song “Road To Burn” (listen below) which is a down tuned mother of a track. “7 Flies” picks up the pace with a head bobbing number. “El Rollito” features a little less bass and more guitar. It’s also one of  the shortest tracks at 3:53 along with the next track, “Set You Free.” “Vidage” is next. It starts out with a lot of mellow drum the in comes the bass followed by (more…)

New Band To Burn One To – 1000mods

As also seen on Heavy Planet

Do you like down tuned psychedelic desert stoner rock? If you do then chances are you’ll like our next New Band To Burn One To.The band is from Greece and they’re called 1000mods.

1000mods is a psychedelic stoner rock band from Hiliomodi, Greece.
They formed in 2005 and after a few changes the final lineup was made up in summer 2006. From that time and later on they have played numerous live shows and sometimes they accompanied bands like Nightstalker (greek stoner rock legends), Brant Bjork and My Sleeping Karma. They tend to impress everyone that attends their shows with their commitment to vintage equipment, their thick and heavy analog sound and their remarkably passionate performing on stage.
In the beginning of 2007 they released their first self-financed EP named “Blank Reality” on CD, and now – December 2009 – they strike back with a brand new 7” EP titled “Liquid Sleep”. Available on colored (light green) vinyl.

You don’t really need to burn one to enjoy these guys. Hell, their music will do it for you. The down tuned psychedelic desert stoner rock is about some of the best you’ll find without listening to Kyuss. You can purchase their 7″ EP from many fine mail order website worldwide including All That Is Heavy. I couldn’t find their demo anywhere to purchase. Perhaps the band can upload it to a Bandcamp site for download (hint hint)? The demos are available for free listen on their Myspace page. Check them out.
