Moonbow – The End of Time

Moonbow – The End of Time
Self released/Platinum PR – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Hard
Rated: ****

Hailing from the dark and bloody grounds of Kentucky the Moonbow foursome could be labeled as a supergroup. For the band consists out of members from Hank3, Lethal, Afghan Whigs, Hermano and Valley of The Sun. All rounded up by singer Matt Bischoff who also recruited the help from John Garcia on the Take It For Granted song. Which is a damn good middle track but which is by no means the selling point for their amazing debut album The End Of Time. Which starts off with the memorable sounds of a bluegrass Appalachian barn dance before quickly deepening, darkening and going off the scale in the form of mountainous riffs and towering drums. The amigos go for that classic hardrock feel but make it all about everything we love from stonerrock. They excel in changing the mood with every tempo shift and are masters in alternating in different energies. They keep it dry and airy and let that hot Kentucky wind blow their sound all the way to West Virginia. Combining, intertwining and mixing the typical heavy sounds of both states. And then there’s Matt himself; quite a voice you got there hombre. Excellent for the shimmering heat exhumed by all that Moonbow represents. Time to guzzle some horrible moonshine or grade A PennyPacker bourbon. It’s all good as long as you got Moonbow playin…
