Snake Thursday – Iter
Self released – 2014
Rock, Stoner, Desert, Hard, Metal, Space
Back in 2012 the Polish trio Snake Thursday released a damn fine six shooter album called Cruise Mode. On it they displayed a hefty take on stoner and hard rock with punky influences. Relentless grinding fuzzy riffs and pounding rhythms were the driving force and Cruise Mode was built for speed. On the new album Iter the boys slow down a bit without grinding to a halt. In fact it has this ever forward motion built into it. It still moves and keeps moving and trucks and pushes you over the edge. And there, down in the abyss, the gritty bass heavy fuzz vibrates and turns your surroundings into a steamy hot whirlwind. You can almost feel the lava being pushed up beneath your feet as you stomp around on tracks like Implode The Earth and Beyond Aurora. And still, we’ve only just begun, tiny influences of doom and space and grunge mesmerize as the sound goes big, huge and colossal. And all this just simmers and steams inside a big thermonuclear oven until the energy becomes too gigantic to contain. And then it just explodes! Over and over and over again. Until everything has become more than what we’ve started with. Yes. I am guessing this is indeed a musical Perpetuum Mobile. Snake Thursday, every day of the week!
