Tsar Bomba – Silent Queen

Tsar Bomba – Silent Queen
Hellbound Records – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Metal, Grunge
Rated: ****

Gnarly, heavy and foul sounding stoner metal from the capital of France. Tsar Bomba is here to level and flatten the entire globe. On their first album Silent Queen the guys deliver a rough package off incredible drumwork, tight guitar and ever-prevalent bass extravaganza. Add to this a singer that seems to growl, grunt, scream and sing the entire album and one can surely picture the crater that is left behind once the record finishes. It is a smoldering hole of aggressive riffs and hostile rhythms of violent energy and putrid accentuation. Their dynamics seem to grow a pair of their own; probably caused by the fallout from the different kind of strings delivered. Tsar Bomba is not just brilliant stoner metal, it’s an all-encompassing final ride through all kinds of grungy metal towards a highly flammable detonation that will leave every listener overwhelmed, shocked and in awe…
