Colossa – Colossa EP

Colossa – Colossa EP
Self released – 2009
Waardering: ****

Pfew; it’s not just the region of Nijmegen/Arnhem that delivers the best when it comes to rock in the Netherlands. The southern region of Limburg has been making name for itself as well; with bands like Dewolff and Sungrazer. And since 2009 we can also talk about the trio called Colossa. Who have just released their full-sized album called Born To Make A Sound under guidance of producer Guido (there he is again) Aalbers; and will surely be turning heads with it. But let’s revisit their first five songs counting ep of 2009 with which it all started. Five tight songs strongly based on the stoner that Queens of The Stone Age brought to the masses; but with a lot of Masters of Reality lines. Add to this that the singer even reminds of Chris Goss now and again; and you know that you’re in for a good time. Of course; we could say that a lot of it resembles parts of the just names examples a bit too much. But yer a curmudgeon if you don’t dig these tight drums and tasty riffs!
