Blastronaut – Burning Mother

Blastronaut – Burning Mother
Self released – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Metal
Rated: ***
Formed at the tail-end of another dubious summer in Manchester, England, the five amigo’s that make up Blastronaut decided to start producing some heavy rock of their own as the drizzle turned into a fall shower. After a successful demo a year after their formation they have now pushed into full gear as they release their debut album Burning Mother. Which is another testament to the growing change in the music industry and another success story in the art of asking. Thanks to multiple financial pledges by fans we are now treated to ten damn loud stoner metal songs that move like a runaway freight train down an overtly aggressive track with vocalist Chris Whitehouse as a manic engineer howling and constantly ripping the steam trumpet. The drums give it that ever-moving cadence and produce mountains speeding by or tunnels that push the limits of your ears. And the edgy guitarwork and cavernous riffs paint the rest of the picture; which is beautiful but dangerous. What a ride!
