Sun Rider – Demo

Sun Rider – Demo
Self released – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Metal
Rated: ***

From the lovely Dutch city of Dordrecht comes a five-piece stoner formation that will blow your head off with heavy riffs, epic solo’s and psychedelic streams of energy. On their first three songs demo Sun Rider aims to leave your ears bleeding, your neck twisted and a massive grin across your face. They produce a tight groove with a metal gallop that moves like lightning and strikes with furious anger. Some incredible licks and tasty guitarlines give the forceful drumming exactly the right amount of color to keep things interesting, heavy and moving. The only thing that keeps this demo from being the stuff of legends is the not always convincing vocals of their frontman. On some moments his forced throat works; but on most it feels like a reach and too much of a stretch. On all other fronts: Sun Rider is a monstrous force to be reckoned with! Sooner or later!
