Junior Bruce – The Burden

Junior Bruce – The Burden
Self released – 2013
Rock, Metal, Stoner, Sludge
Rated: ****
Their damn fine debut album The Headless King released in 2012 rippled the stoner metal pond until it became a stormy ocean. And now the five amigos are back with a follow-up two track EP called The Burden. We are of course referring to the Florida outfit Junior Bruce. Who delivered with this very EP one of the heaviest and brutal releases of this very year. It is an all-out wrecking ball! But one that doesn’t just level everything; it does so with precision and countenance. Just listen to the drums. Deliberate air where one would expect thick bass and slow rhythms accentuated by cymbal ticks and crashes. The riffs slay with ease, the guitars howl so beautifully it makes your skin crawl and the growling vocalist convinces even more. Check out Junior Bruce and get naked. For apparently that’s the only way to go when enjoying a wrecking ball!
