Number 5



Number 5


A bit more than fifty points are needed to jump from Monolord on Number 6 to reach this band and their album on Number 5. One that I had definitely not expected to end up this high. Yes, we dug it, we dug it a lot when it was released through Heavy Psych Sounds around the middle of May. But we just assumed all you crazies out there would be swamped with all the other great releases to forget about this one. “Their Old School Metal approach is heavy, hard, fast and addictive!” crazy cat of  doom, Sir Reek of STOOM wrote that back then and that it really and truly is. But a lot of that storming metal does border more on the hardrock side of it all and that age old sound. That sound from the gutter and from those marauding bikers back in the seventies. Yes, there is that proto-edge to everything they do and there is charging power to their riffs. This gallop and pounce, this wicked way of heavy metal release. And those riffs, guitarlines and coloring, we must confess, has gotten even more dramatic, intense and riveting on this album. Very catchy, very hooky and very big! Get loud with Number 5!
