Number 9


Number 9


We're going to jump five points now. From Youngblood Supercult on Number 10 to reach the first one digit position of the Stoner HiVe Top 20 Countdown of 2017. On Number 9 we find an album that fell off many times as the votes came in for the Countdown. And then on that final day they suddenly picked up steam and passed all those bands that already were featured. It seems it is another album that you either love or hate. We all love the band. There is no doubt about that. But this album did get some harsher critique as their earlier ones. Back in 2010 their album made it to the Number 10 spot. And this 2017 one was already loved by yours truly back when it came out. “It is the result of endless hours of jamming, jamming and jamming after the former bassist left the group. The three of them had to find out where it would lead them and what the new chemistry would be. Well, they’ve gone psycho on the use of analog synths, keyboards and wild effects, while still retaining focus on the fact that even though everything is jam-based, a song has to be written, an adventure has to be taken and a journey has to reach its goal. And you will feel this during the course of every track. Which seem less worldly, a bit heavier and heftier in every aspect, yet every bit as spiritual as their earlier releases. It is yet another exploration one has to join in on. It has the markings of a true quest, the search of something pure and honest.” And it will leave you feeling at one...
