Half Gramme Of Soma – Marche Au Noir


Half Gramme Of Soma – Marche Au Noir
Self released – 2014
Rock, Stoner, Grunge, Hard, Metal
Rated: ****

“There is always soma, delicious soma, half a gramme for a half-holiday, a gramme for a week-end, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon!” And the Athens quintet going under the name Half Gramme Of Soma deliver not just a half holiday; but a true heavy trip to the other side of the moon. After the first two tracks you are sweating with anxiety and the riffs mash around in your head as the battering drums and the screaming vocals whip you higher and higher. "By this time the soma had begun to work. Eyes shone, cheeks were flushed, the inner light of universal benevolence broke out on every face in happy, friendly smiles.” And those happy smiles are made up out of the frenzy that has broken out in your heart as Hitch Hike and Cage present you rumbling basses and swampy stoner. And then Zero ends. The bonus tracks that starts acoustic and stays subdued compared to the first four tracks. And you don’t want to end it this way. You need more! So you just flip back to that first track for: "You do look glum! What you need is a gramme of soma!" Addiction lies in wait…
