Gozu – The Fury Of A Patient Man
Small Stone Records – 2013
Gozu has the honor of releasing the first full metal stoner blast into 2013 and the first five star mention of this year. Their new album The Fury Of A Patient Man is a DMT cannon shot into the New Year. And while yer drinking your beer as you soar to the sky you pump your fist and headbang yourself into a hallucinogenic coma. Without losing their tongue and cheek mentality they moved forward and perfect the sound they carried on their much loved record Locust Season. This time they move a tad away from the Queens Of The Stone Age, Soundgarden and Kyuss influences just enough to make their song structures sound heavier and meant for the future. They still retain that amazing air of accessibility but do not fear experimentation and exploration. As we can judge by certain rhythm changes, breaks and ofcourse the twenty-three minute long closer The Ceaseless Thunder Of Surf. And any band that pays tribute to Traci Lords deserves a full chest tattoo of her snatch and their smiling heads! Gozu; the first album that will surely make the top 20 of 2013!
