Turbo Bobcat – Pentastar Rocket Ride (EP Review)

Calling all clutch fans! If you love stoner riffs with bluesy vibes then look no further. Turbobobcat released “Pentastar Rocket Ride” last year and it’s so good I just had to review it. Turbobobcat come from Italy and they absolutely bring the riffs. So what makes this so great? Well let’s dive right on into this.

To start, the EP is mixed very well, and they used lots of sweet effects. It’s definitely an album that gets rockin. They have plenty of catchy hooks and great riffs that’ll be stuck in your head the whole day.

I absolutely recommend this to anyone that dabbles in Red Fang, or Clutch. Go buy these guys merch and go see them if they come through your town!

Today I’m giving this album a 6/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.

Haunt

If you love NWOBHM bands like priest, maiden and angel witch then you gotta check out “Haunt”, these guys are from Fresno, California, and it also features Trevor from the doom trio “Beastmaker”. They released a EP back in 2017 titled “Luminous Eyes”, go check them out and go support them!

Attalla

Attalla is a Wisconsin based stoner metal band and they bring the RIFFS, combining classic Rock ‘n Roll riffs with great doom vibes, it’s very snazzy. I actually put their last album “Glacial Rule” in my top albums of 2017, you can go and check out that list and go support these guys and go buy their merch!

Green Lung

If your a fan of Red Fang, Bison and Clutch then “Green Lung” is right up your alley. These guys hail from London, UK, and they’re gonna release a very anticipated new EP titled “Free the Witch” coming February 19th, which I will definitely be doing a album review on. Make sure you guys go catch them on tour and make sure you check out their new EP when it comes out!

Most anticipated albums of 2018

My most anticipated albums of 2018

So we’re coming to a close on 2017 and it’s been really good for the stoner/doom community, but let’s look for the future of 2018 and see what’s coming.

Killer Boogie – Acid Cream

These guys are coming in from “Heavy Psych Sounds Records” and I haven’t heard much of these guys but what I have heard is really killer rock ‘n roll! Get ready to boogie!

Windhand/Satan’s Satyrs – S/T

Now anyone that is a doom fan knows both these bands very well. It’s very cool to see such different bands on the heavy spectrum doing a split together, and since Windhand hasn’t put out anything since 2015 and Satan’s Satyrs hasn’t put out anything since 2015 as well it should be pretty interesting to see what these cats are up to.

Green Druid – Ashen Blood

These guys are coming from the “Earache Records” camp and their hailing from Denver Colorado, you can check out their singles over on Spotify. If you love classic ancient doom then Green Druid is for you! That rhymed unintentionally.

Baroness

“Baroness” is expecting to release an album sometime in 2018. Any guesses on what the color is gonna be? I want them to release a double album using the colors “black and white”.

High on Fire

High on fire just celebrated their 20th anniversary of being a band and they’re planning on releasing a record in 2018. PLUS Matt Pike’s other band “Sleep” is scheduled to release a new record. Matt is gonna have a busy year making heavy monolithic riffs.

High Reeper – S/T

These guys are also from the “Heavy Psych Sounds” gang and they got big plans to release their S/T album in 2018. If you love good ole stoner rock then “High Reeper” is for you.

Fingers crossed 2018 is as good as 2017 with the releases of stoner/doom albums.
