skanska_mordTying in with my affection for Wax Trax, the label who released the My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult material, Small Stone are a newer (to me) label that are really putting out some interesting music and this long player really sets the standard.


If your leaning is towards Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog, Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots then rush out and buy this album now. Think of a down-tuned Sabbath at times, listen to 'Doghouse' to see what I mean. The vocals are awesome throughout, think bastard son of Chris Cornell and Ozzy Osbourne, and this from a Swedish metal band. Yes, yet another European addition to the collection. 


The more you listen the more Sabbath influences come out at you; 'Two In The Morning' is definitely the 'Wizard' in disguise but does that really matter???!!! There isn't what I could call a weak track on the album. Set the volume to 'Stoner', nod the head slowly, down-tune your guitar, set the wah and drift.

 

Seven out of ten for effort. Stand out track on the album for me is '111'. Smiles all round.
