Broken Betty – Original Features


Broken Betty – Original Features
Nasiono Records – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Psychedelica, Hard, Space, Metal
Rated: ****


The Polish trio Broken Betty has always openly shown the musical colors they fly by. Never hiding their influences or their heroes. On their third release, a three track EP called Original Features, they return to a heavy fuzzed out grunge and punk sound without ever losing sight of the stoner roots they love so dearly. But we’re only referring to the first two explosive tracks here; for their closing song is one king hell of a battleship. Twelve minutes of space rock, post metal, desert doom and hard rock extravaganza. It’s a mad mad ride that sometimes leaves you wondering if it can get any better. High rising guitars, lethargic rhythms and mystical chants exchange blows with fuzzy riffs, serious pounding and wonderful vocals. Sure we dig the aggressive side of Betty; but once you get a taste of her luscious lips that spell out sweet and ancient lust with one long kiss. You’ll be unable to find the courage to fight her. She exhumes hard rocking opium. One taste is all it takes to make you dream…
