El Straffo – Live@MespotineSessionsPosted: November 17, 2012 | |
This minimalistic & heavy as fuck duo of bass & drums (as they shamelessly describe their sound in an e-mail, as “Bass & Drums, like Om”) plows forward on this bassy, bossy monster of an album, storming the listener with doomy, droning riffs, slow-paced yet machine-like drumming and screaming, somewhat distant vocals. This is stoner rock/metal reduced to its bare basics, kept within tight bass riffs and precise drumming. If only it was recorded at a better quality, it would have become a hit. Otherwise, a very promising proposal of heavy psych by these Mexican (or maybe German…?) bassstoners.
