Time once again it’s time for a few EPs that need some reviewing. The first one up is the latest by Slowtorch called From Radiation They Came. This 5 piece from Italy plays a very hard and southern rock style. “Hillbilly” starts it off, “Piledriver” gets your head banging and when you get to “Hellboozer” you’ll be ready to hit repeat and keep the party going.
Home is a three piece from Austria. They were recently featured as a New Band To Burn One To and are currently offering this 2010 Promo for free. The sound is some brutal heavy and hardcore metal that will make you scared to go out at night after listening. Three tracks that come in at 13 minutes long make you crave more. Go get yours and listen for yourself.
These guys here first got my attention on stonerrock.com. I’m glad they did because after listening to their latest self titled EP, I’m convinced that there is more than just the Calgary Flames and Stampede Wrestling in Alberta. With their debut EP, Chron Goblin give you the best 20 minutes you’ll spend in probably ever. The guitars are tight, heavy and fuzzy. The drums have that perfect rhythm to get you to pretend you’re behind the kit. The vocals sound something like you’ll hear off of a Fu Manchu or even Atomic Bitchwax album. “Mirrors” kicks it off in style. A heavy and catchy tune that will get stuck in your head. “Walk With Me” is a slower paced and adds a bit of a doom element. “Flat-Footed Hypocrite” closes off the album with a heavy 4 minute rock your balls off track. A definite must listen.
Next we have a 5 piece from the United Kingdom. They play a heavy dirty southern rock. Cinco Hombres (Diez Cojones) is their 2009 EP. It’s lead track, “Stay Down” gets you going fast and heavy. A great way to start off an EP. “Jitterbug” has some punk elements to it while staying true to a rock song. It sounds similar to an Amputators album. “Kicked in the Teeth” is a pretty epic song coming in at just under 6:30. The albums closes off with a hidden track which mixes a bit of classic rock with a tad bit of AC/DC “A Whole Lot Of Rosie” sounding song.
Last up but certainly not least is Peanut Butter Lovesicle. This is their debut EP titled Heavy Daze Wildcat Craze. The opening track, “Colorblind” is very similar to “Dr. Smoke” by Asteroid with a little less fuzz and a little more classic rock guitar. “State of I” shifts in speed and temp throughout but will get you feeling the tune. “Sicamore Trees” has a similar beat to the song “Lake of Fire” that was covered by Nirvana on the Unplugged album. “Hiroshima” closes it off with a somewhat funky upbeat rock tune and contains an acoustic hidden track. The band does have a live EP that they are offering for free to make sure you check that out as well.
