Desert Storm – Forked Tongues


Desert Storm – Forked Tongues
Self released – 2010
Rock, Stoner, Metal, Blues, Southern
Waardering: ***



There are many bands and outfits operating under this name but in this case we are referring to the British stoner formation called Desert Storm. The five freaks formed up around 2007 and rock out like a bastard son of Down and Clutch, taking queues from Kyuss and some southern and blues influences from the likes of Black Crowes on their full-sized album Forked Tongues. But for the most part you are served a tasty dish of groove metal spiced up with some serious stoner. With hefty vocals and ditto massive riffs we truck along through dirty swampy territory. We got some precious subtle moments and a lot of bad ass metal ruckus, in part due to the guttural vocals. The only small hindrance, are the drums which are a bit thin on the production side of things on several occasions. But with great tracks, which boasts all kinds of different vocal styles by the same singer, like The Jackal you can never go wrong…
