Hössferatu – Hössferatu

Hössferatu – Hössferatu
Self released – 2014
Rock, Doom, Metal, Stoner, Sludge
Rated: ***

Holy gutter rats and other vermin! The opening track Hand Of Madness hits you like drunken punch in the paunch and leaves you jeering and staggering and almost toppling over. It’s a hardcore thrash metal minute and a half and one that leaves you breathless and hoping for respite. Which comes in the form of the rest of the tracks on the self-titled full-sized debut of the mighty Hössferatu. This is dangerous biker blues that drives on the very edge of the needle. And since life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, we cannot get enough of Hössferatu. With an imposing voice the five amigos truck on through burning landscapes full of doom, thunderous stoner and filthy sludge. And like a pair of deviant bookends the album ends with the fast paced Sacred Rice. Which has you skidding broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming: “Wow! What a ride!”
