Cortez – Phoebus (2013)

Cortez - Phoebus (2013) The Swiss trio are back and it’s time for the new set of dark and furious butchery! Although guitarist Antoine Tinguely (ex-Berserk For Tea Time) replaced former guitarist Samuel Vaney, Vaney is now supporting the band as composer/mixer.
While the drums were recorded in the REC Studio of Serge Morattel in Geneva, they recorded the guitars and vocals in their own rehearsal room, the new album is the result of hard work, giving the band big freedom in creation and the possibility to fully assume the production process. The sound it’s pretty raw, unpolished and have a pithy live vibe, if you pump up the volume high enough, almost feels like you are there in the rehearsal room. So, “Phoebus” it’s not about surgically clean sound and high-end production, but about the unleashed strength of metal, about the flesh ripper riffs and pounding like hell drums, about not making compromises, but expressing feelings through music.

Slut Machine – From Blind to Blue, EP (2012)

With traces back to Kyuss, Monster Magnet and Corrosion Of Conformity, gathering inspiration through Queens Of the Stone Age from Kyuss and related to Soundgarden and Down, Slut Machine blends perfectly Stoner Rock and Sludge Metal.
“From Blind to Blue” it’s the band third EP and we’ve got four heavy weight Stoner/Sludge hurricanes. Released on 14 April 2012, the EP it’s available for FREE DOWNLOAD.
“Collapse”, the opener track, it’s powerful and pounding, will grind you into the ground with it’s strong riffs and thundering drums. “Cosmic Monster” have some strong Soundgarden resonances and roots back to Heavy Metal. Once you hear it, it’s hard to get rid of it. “(Ain’t) No Way Out” have more heaviness, it roots lead us back to Black Sabbath. The closing “Tornado” it’s a Mississippi flavoured, slow grinding epic. Heavy as the elephant shit, a classic monster build upon bone cutter riffs and pounding drums and an intense, gloomy vibe. Read more Slut Machine – From Blind to Blue, EP (2012)

Beaten Back to Pure – The Last Refuge of the Sons of Bitches (2010)

Beaten Back to Pure poate că n-au strălucirea şi şarmul unora ca Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster, însă furnizează un Rock/Metal sănătos în cea mai bună tradiţie Stoner/Sludge/Southern Metal amintind de Corrosion of Conformity, Buzzov*en, de nervul Pantera/Down ( 😀 ), dar şi de dinamica celor din Soudgarden din epoca „Badmotorfinger”.
N-au inventat roata de rezervă, uşa la cămară sau filetul la bec, dar acest „The Last Refuge of the Sons of Bitches” sună energic, băieţii îşi fac treaba cu suflet, din convingere şi plăcere.
Cam subţire informaţiile legate de gaşcă, discul lansat acum pare re-editarea celui de-al doilea lor disc din 2004, însă nu ştiu dacă este doar o re-editare sau au remixat, re-masterizat, eventual re-imprimat materialul.
