Lonely Kamel – Dust Devil

Lonely Kamel – Dust Devil
Napalm – 2011
Rock, Blues, Hard, Seventies, Stoner
Waardering: *****

The first two records by the Norwegian foursome Lonely Kamel were pretty decent and when they performed on stage you could easily be entertained with a few beers down yer throat. But they never really seemed to amaze or blew you away. Their new record Dust Devil is of a completely different league. At the very first tones this one grips you by the throat, demands your complete attention and never lets go. Loosely inspired by a weird Australian movie from 1992 this album is filled to the rim with phenomenal heavy blues songs, groovy stoner and seventies hardrock. The wild and haunting voice in full overdrive of singer Thomas Brenna is extremely righteous and when the fascinating rhythms coarse through your veins you are simply hypnotized. As if the Dust Devil himself has gotten hold of you and enchanted you with incredible riffs, dark drums and a full trotting bass that defines everything. And when a band sees this amount of progress in just one year; we all know what that means… The Devil has gained another soul…
