Dope Flood – A Planet on Four Legs

Dope Flood – A Planet on Four Legs
Self released – 2011
Rock, Stoner, Grunge
Rated: ***

Almost exactly a year ago the Greece quartet Dope Flood released their debut EP A Planet On Four Legs. Formed only a year before they bring a tasty mixture of heavy nineties grunge, alternative rock, atavistic stoner and languid desert riffs. And they translate it on their first release into three tracks filled with gritty aggression but also into dawdling rhythms and intense drooping structures. They’re at their most convincing during the sunny and lazy notes and turn highly American when they punch the gas. Like a fast gunning muscle car that weaves through heavy traffic but really loves the wide open sun blistered empty and deserted highway the most. So filler’up, speed out of town and get ready to surf the flood…
