BORT – The Unblinking Eye (EP Review)

Strap in and get ready for this powerhouse of an EP, Canada’s own BORT follows up to their 2018 release of “Crossing the Desert” with “The Unblinking Eye” now let’s get right into the riffs.

The EP starts with almost a 80s style synth intro that reminds me of stranger things. Speaking of 80s they also do a fantastic recreation of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by “Tears for Fears” and as surprising as that is I think it fits perfectly into the EP.

The whole piece of music has really bluesy riffs and catchy vocals, I think they’ve progressed for the better since their first release.

I think one thing they really accomplished on this album is their super hooky choruses that’ll get stuck in your head for days.

So as always go support this awesome band, if they come to your town go see them and buy their merch!

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


Wizzerd – S/T (Album Review)

Coming straight from the mountains of Montana, the powerhouse that is known as “Wizzerd” has blessed us with a new record and it is filled to the brim with all sorts of cool things. Let’s dive into this adventure and see what we can find.

First the record starts with straight stoner riffs which really sets the tone for the album but then they dive into some real jammin punk vibes was a cool transition. I think this album is a perfect example of a roller coaster of an album, then can have great riffs with slow melodic parts but then get real heavy and fast.

One stand out thing to me on the album is their instruments they use and how they use different instruments outside of just a guitar or bass and when I first heard it I instantly thought of the album sabotage by Black Sabbath because they did the same thing on some songs.

So overall this album has a little bit of everything, they have amazing chunky riffs, great full drums and plenty of different instruments thrown around to please everyone. So I would definitely recommend this band and of course if they come to your town go see them and go buy their new album and merch!

Today I’m giving this album a 7/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.
