Via The Soda Shop:
Having lived in Mississippi for years, I can empathize.
Quickly: they sound like Lord, or Stone Temple Pilots having discovered down-tuning and blues– and it’s nearly as cool as it sounds. The combination of Duke Ellington‘s “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing” into a swinging swamp-blues/ metal number is just nice. (“Making deals with the robot devil.”)
Nothing original, but rocking stuff: blues riffs transformed into metal, showing clearly the line from blues to rock to metal. A bluesman tuned down a fifth from standard– aka waaaay down.
There’s even a “clap with us” section that manages to work in a metal/ rock context. Nicely done. Combine that with a coarse-lunged Karl Agell-like singer, and it’s a pretty rocking time.
