Grotto – SmokonomiconPosted: January 5, 2017 | |
[ Eggs in Aspic, 2016 ]
You want it heavier? GOOD!!! Because Grotto is as heavy of a muscle car that is the genre of stoner rock as it can be without turning into a steamroller. Okay, that sentence didn’t really make a whole lot of sense. But who cares!? These Belgian dudes are heavy as fuck, yet manage to make some amazingly melodic, intricate tracks on the way while staying faithful to the Holy Heaviness and the Sacred Fuzz. The oldschool fantasy themes and the great artwork Robin Van Oyen (who also runs the music blog Stonerobixxx) only adds to the great, somewhat nostalgic experience. Riff on! Highly recommended!
