Kamchatka – Bury Your Roots


Kamchatka – Bury Your Roots
GMR/Bertus – 2011
Rock, Blues, Stoner
Waardering: ***


On their fourth album Bury Your Roots the Swedish freaks from Kamchatka decide to pull open a nice can of nineties (alternative) bluesrock which borrows the sugar from the seventies. Ofcourse the threesome still use that tiny layer of stoner they are known for but those roots are most of the time buried under catchy guitar-lines and a lovely groovy singer. Guitar-player and vocalist Thomas Andersson sounds like a bluesman reborn who does not just sing because he has to, but because he wants to and claims it. Making the songs sound fresh and roomy without becoming too frivolous. And with the help of ex-Opeth keyboard-player Per Wiberg again on songs like Before Things Get rough we get treated to some grade A classic rock and albeit none to innovating it is always invigorating. Up-tempo bluesrock without too much hassle or useless attire; simply wonderful.
