Monster Truck – Sittin’ Heavy


Monster Truck – Sittin’ Heavy
Mascot – 2016
Rock, Hard, Stoner, Southern
Rated: ****

Ever since they ran me over with their debut album Furiosity back in 2013 I’ve had a particular love for that Canadian quartet called Monster Truck. It’s one of those infatuations that stem from the obvious. Just like their name. You know you’re in for a good ol’ time when you hear a bandname like Monster Truck. No nonsense, straight up bourbon, beer guzzling good ol’ time. Its low hung, down tuned guitars, growling vocals and truckin’ tempos that you expect from a band like Monster Truck, and they delivered that laced with pure gold on that damn fine debut album. And now, two years later, they return to deliver the good stuff once again. It is the dead of winter over here, but when Sittin’ Heavy started its rotation I pulled the barbecue out of the shed and raced through my fridge full of imported brews. Damn, these guys know how to show you a good time and damn it sounds like they had a great time themselves when they recorded this record. Snarling and grating and pounding and stomping and sometimes taking the clean road when the dirty path seems to full of misers and all of that within an amazing array of top quality songs. There is not one that blunders. Even if, lyrically, they do choose the easy road here and there. Shit, but when you’re on the straight line, you can just as easily crack open a beer, put your feed up and steer the truck with your heels! Sittin’ pretty!
