Strauss – Strauss

Strauss – Strauss
Self released – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Sludge, Metal
Rated: ****

Released, reviewed and lost a few months back. So now we revisit it and are once again thoroughly surprised and amazed at the antediluvian stoner rock produced by five-some Strauss. On their first six tracks strong self-titled release they manage to profess their love for everything sludgy and stoner that belonged to that first classic wave or new born heaviness. And they do that with such proficiency and compulsion it sounds like it’s being discovered for the very first time. Fuzzy riffs and stormy grooves tornado around your head as vocalist Stef propels you ever forward through every song. It’s dirty, it’s raw and it’s highly addictive. Which is also due to the fact that they use all that antique goodness and add some new metal influences gradually; aiming it for a superior future. Just hear those drums man; something is coming. Better watch out…
