Gandhi’s Gunn – The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound

Gandhi’s Gunn – The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound
Taxi Driver Records – 2012
Rock, Metal, Stoner, Hard
Rated: *****

Peaceful resistance is a farce, get a gun, grow a beard and get rocking. That’s the way to go! And so we gladly follow the Italian quartet Gandhi’s Gunn into battle. Their debut album Thirthyeahs was already a stalwart work of hard hitting riffs, but their sophomore record The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound tops that easily. It’s chockfull of incredible riffage, pounding drums and excellent vocals. Leaning heavily on the harder, heavy and grimy side of stoner metal the band also proves it can write long and mesmerizing tracks with Flood and the album closer Hypothesis. Both provide an amazing adventure through different energy currents and waves of psychedelics. But from note number one of the album opener Haywire it’s a full throttle and overwhelming guitar and drum assault by these Italian freaks. And those excellent vocals almost seem possessed at times without ever losing sight of the song. I guess it’s clear that we will have tons of fun with the guys from Gandhi’s Gunn. So let’s hope their conquest takes them across the world in a very near future; cause I love their harder sound and am definitely gonna sport the beard to prove it!
