Donnerwetter – Donnerwetter


Donnerwetter – Donnerwetter
Self released – 2015
Rock, Blues, Garage
Rated: ****

Two worn down looking men. Sitting across from each other on a rickety chair with scarred guitars in their hands. In an almost empty room, except for some yellowed posters, empty bottles and overflowing ashtrays. That’s how the band and the album were born. Donnerwetter! This sick self-titled album features Rocco Ostermann and Wout Kemkens, both active in Shaking Godspeed and Thee Hammer. They found each other as they watched the paint fall down from the walls when they made their guitars scream and howl. Two wayward guitarists and songsmiths that give fuck all about conventions. No, these cats dance on that weird tightrope where only a few can keep balance. Think Howlin’ Wolf, Captain Beefheart and Dr. John. On keys and bass we hear Matthijs Stronks and on drums Mike Visser. Which ofcourse has us also hearing some of that Shaking Godspeed sound. Cause yes, it becomes that wild and wonderful many a time, but it is also so forthright and honest that you can feel every note played in the very core of your spine. Even when they sing about cross-eyed dogs!
