Kamchatka – The Search Goes On

 
Kamchatka – The Search Goes On
Despotz – 2014
Rock, Stoner, Blues, Seventies
Rated: *****
 
Somedays, when you put on a new record you are simply blown away start to finish. And with the new album The Search Goes On by Sweden’s Kamchatka that is exactly the case! Founded back in 2001 the guys quickly convinced us of the necessity of their very own style of rock. Their mixture of seventies heavy blues, stoner trucking and psychedelic free garage rock has this wild and ferocious inevitability. It’s a visit to a highly volatile volcanic landscape and dancing upon its surface with your arms stretched out. Every album had that exact quality and either moved more towards that bluesy sound or towards the stoner side of their character. This one has found an amazing third road; that which uses all of the above but aims even more towards that ‘free’ rock aspect of the seventies. Like they state themselves; think about Cream, Zeppelin and Hendrix but with a Robin Trower or Warren Haynes approach. It’s groovy, it’s funky and it moves like a caged tiger ready to pounce. With Per Wiberg (Opeth) on bass the band has found its ultimate incarnation and let’s pray that their search never ends!
