Earthdriver – Leave Something Witchy (EP Review)

Get ready everybody…this new EP by Earthdriver will hit you pretty hard, now don’t get bummed just cause it’s an EP, this thing is packed full of crunchy guitars and super full drums. This little beast is titled “Leave Something Witchy…” which is an awesome reference to Charles Manson, let’s take a look at the whole EP.

First off, before I start talking about the songs I have to just say the guitar tone and sound is absolutely destructive. Ok, now with the first song “Leave Something Witchy” they ease you into the heaviness rather than just slamming you right in the face, and of course they had to throw in the Charles Manson snippet in the beginning which I thought was a fantastic touch. They song has a lot of grooves and great catches, it almost reminds me of some Fu Manchu vibes.

Second track is literally more upbeat, but still very hard hitting and powerful. The one thing that had to grow on me was the vocals, when I first listened to them I wasn’t very fond of em but listening over and over it really makes sense and they grew on me for sure.

Now lastly my favorite song and the end of the EP “Genesis/Lament of the Elder Gods” now it not only is a super killer song titled but it lives up to it! The first part “Genesis” is a perfect transition to the next piece of music, it sets a perfect tone to the song. “Lament of the Elder Gods” is by far one of the heaviest riffs I’ve heard in a long time, they say they’re a three piece but in reality it sounds like a whole army of powerful doom metal soldiers attacking and pillaging. And the vocals on this track fits more to the band, I think.

Overall this EP is very impressive and I can’t wait to hear more of these guys. Go support them and go buy their merch/Music!

Grandpa Jack – Evil One (Album Review)

Today we’re taking a look at the new Grandpa Jack album “Evil One” released on Lost Moon records.

This album right off the bat is packed full of amazing bluesy riffs, fuzzed out vocals and really cool swing beats. This album really has a lot of up and down parts, from songs like “The Stone” which is very vibe-oriented, to songs like “Evil One” which is like a blend of Thin Lizzy and Graveyard.

Side story about the album (but doesn’t have anything to do with the album) I actually have a great grandpa named jack and we call him “Grandpa Jack,” weird coincidence I guess haha.

So overall, if you’re looking for bluesy riffs, psychedelic rhythms, and just a good ole time I highly recommend Grandpa Jack. So go buy they’re new record and merch.
