You’re Smiling Now But We’ll All Turn Into Demons – Population IVPosted: March 19, 2015 | |
You might think that the band with such a name would be some pretentious post-rock, but then again, why the fuck would it land here!? Of course it’s not any balless crescendo wankery, Weed Temple’s too good for this shit. This Portsmouth team is a bunch of fire-breathing stoner rockers, and with Population IV they state their devotion to the amp and the sweet leaf with a bang. With the meaty basslines and dirty riffs which sound like invokations to the elder gods of the six-string this album is a testament to all that is heavy, fuzzy and higher than the ISS. Imagine a chance meeting halfway between Black Sabbath and late Earth and you might get close to their sound. Recommended!
