Black Nova – II

Black Nova – II
Self released – 2011
Rock, Stoner
Rated: ****

The German stoner group Black Nova, hailing from the dark and bloody grounds of Bavaria was formed by two members who crawled from the ashes of Treetone and released a highly entertaining demo called Black Sessions in 2007 after which things got a bit quiet revolving these pistoleros. But we are happy to report the guys are back and ready for action with a second EP neatly entitled II. It’s fast driving and high rolling stoner rock in the spirit of Kyuss, Queens Of The Stone Age, Nebula, Fu Manchu and all that good stuff originating from the Desert. It’s creepy tight riffing on a gigantic groove blasted open by a dragging or pounding drum and wicked vocals. And these guys know exactly when to pull back on the gas and let that dry air atmosphere seep through before going full throttle again. II is a continuation of their Black Sessions, dynamic by default and heavy laden with those rolling fuzzballs we all love so well. Black Nova, remember that name!
