Review – Larman Clamor – Altars To Turn Blood
After 2 successful releases earlier in the year, Larman Clamor have released their latest full length album titled Altars To Turn Blood. For those of you new to the band, Larman Clamor are a two piece from Germany. They play a mixture of different styles including delta blues, lo-fi, garage, stoner, psychedelic and swamp rock.
Altars To Turn Blood channels some of the influences including ZZ Top, R.L. Burnside, Dr. John, Iron Butterfly, The White Stripes, Endless Boogie, early Monster Magnet, Clutch, Earth, Blackwolfgoat, and Creedence Clearwater Revival to name a few. It rocks hard and it’s also ambient and bluesy at the same time. The majority of the album is a bit more down tempo and mellow as is evident in tracks like “Handful of Hex,” “Altars To Turn Blood” and “Phantom & Rinosaur.” A few of the more upbeat songs are “Deep In The Tar” and “Limb Creek Boogie.” (more…)
Bandcamp Recommendations 6/30/2011
Greetings and welcome to another edition of our Bandcamp Recommendations feature. This feature is almost a year old. It seems like yesterday I discovered the beauty of Bandcamp and all there is to offer. Enough of that already, on to what we’re all here for. Free music! Just remember though, support the bands by going to their shows, but a shirt or pay for other band merch.
The first band is from Canada. Unfortunately they recently broke up. To bad because they had a bright future ahead for them as their debut album The band is Hugenelk. Straight up stoner rock is what they play. Nothing is sugar coated, just as it should be. The songs are catchy, groove well and worthy of a download.
