Sykopath Condor – Sykopath Condor

Sykopath Condor – Sykopath Condor
Self released – 2013
Rock, Hard, Stoner, Grunge,
Rated: ****

Hailing from the United Kingdom; the Sykopath Condor quartet was formed in 2010 and have been wrecking stages across the country since 2012. They released a first EP called Run For Cover in the early months of 2013 and followed that up with their first full-sized self-titled album in November. An eleven-track effort that captures that alternative rock and grunge feel of Pearl Jam with something that lives in the desert and breathes fire. It has a hefty stoner atmosphere provided by grimy riffs and thunderous drum work. Vocalist Zafirakis has a very own and damn fine voice that moves towards Vedder but does not try to emulate him. The most amazing aspect of the album is probably the highly eclectic nature of the eleven songs which are still able to retain the quality and same color spectrum to show us that they belong together. Sykopath Condor; remember that name!
