Number 4



Number 4


As we approach the top three of the 2010 list of albums we come to a highly anticipated one. One that might not have satisfied every one of those hopes; but enough to reach number four on the list. These Texans give their own honest spin to the hardrock of the seventies and eighties and their third (concept) album can be construed as an ode to the almighty and true heaviness of the riff. Riffs that can easily hold their own next to the ones of the Greats and get the adrenaline pumpin! Cause it is a supercharged rollercoaster ride of diabolical pounding rhythms, high-powered riffs and annihilating solos. Their ferocious mixture of stoner, doom, metal and hardrock is infections and awe-inspiring. So let’s fly high on their relentless riffage! And these were the great highs for the band; but there was also a low point this year. They had to cancel their European dates with Karma To Burn due to the drummer suddenly leaving the band. Let’s hope they find an equally impressive one!
