Number 5


Number 5

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” Peter 5:8

As we count on and add another five points we end up at the Number 5 position with exactly a 141 points. And these cats have been around for a while and are not from Sweden but from the British Isle. They released their seventh album this year and it is filled with heavy stoner and metal that roars and grunts and is as steady as Motörhead. And mix that given band with some heaviness from Down and the doom and dark virtuoso we love from Black Sabbath and you approach that well crafted sound of these insane critters. They sound like the perfect soundtrack to a bourbon soaked biker movie and should actually be signed by one of the big whisky brands to provide music for every freaking commercial they ever make. Rock solid, hard hitting and fast driving. This rock’n roll is what’s keeping me breathing!

  2. Like Motörhead it's hard not to take them for granted! I expected to see something like Conan in this spot instead, but they must be just outside the top 20 because I'm pretty sure I know what the top 4 will be. Hints: funerals, burial yards, the dark arts and a meditational word that's also the title of a John Coltrane album...

  3. We'll know in a few more days! Grin! ;)


    (but judging from Number 4; you might, just might, just might be right. Grin!)
