Mara – Demo

Mara – Demo
Self released – 2012
Rock, Doom, Stoner, Seventies
Rated: ***

The Scandinavians and especially Sweden have been releasing amazing album after amazing album for years now. And the steady stream of greatness even turned into a heavy rock tsunami a few months ago. With bands such as Graveyard, Witchcraft, Troubled Horse, Mamont, Molior Superum, Heroinne, Lugnoro and many more bringing us sweet tasty goodness. Add to this the demo or Mara. As a four piece hailing from Gävle they go for the darker doomier side of heavy rock. Inspired by Sabbath and sporting crushing riffs and intense drums the three tracks on their demo are of value for eternity. With convincing, woeful and boisterous vocals the demo captivates and crashes through your head like a wooly mammoth in a china shop. They waft of promise and of sincere necessity to rock hard and long. Absolutely salivating!
