Crypt Trip – Haze Country (Album Review)

What a pleasant surprise to wake up and see this wonderful album being released today! Texas’s own Crypt Trip are back with “Haze Country” released on Heavy Psych Sounds Records.

First off lemme tell you the follow up before listening to this album. So I’ve been on an old outlaw country kick lately so when I discovered this it’s like everything was coming full circle!

Right when you play this album it throws you right into the golden era of old country and rock n roll starting with “Forward” which is also an instrumental, there’s actually a couple instrumentals on this album but they’re nice, they kinda break up the album quite nice.

Some stand out tracks for me are “To Be Whole”, “Free Rain” and “16 Ounce Blues.” All of these tracks are super diverse, one minute you’ll be be up on a mountain with Led Zeppelin then one minute you’ll be riding a horse with Waylon Jennings. And to be honest I love it, it’s been awhile since I’ve heard a stoner rock album that’s been influenced by old country and even a hint of rockabilly.

So if you haven’t already go check out this album and go buy their new color vinyls and go support them on tour!

The Sword – Used Future (Album Review)

Oh yeah baby the time has finally come…time to dive into the brand new album “Used Future” from “The Sword,” if your a fan of this kind of music and you don’t know about this band then stop reading this and go listen to Age of Winters and Gods of the Earth ASAP.

To begin, let me throw out all the things I really enjoy about this album, because if you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple years the sword have been releasing rock n roll based albums which are good but it’s no Age of Winters. On this album I really dig the lyrics, The Sword have always been known for their cool lyrics which they haven’t stopped doing. Another thing, all the noises and FX they throw in the album really bring a cool vibe to the album.

The real shine and climax of the album I think is the B-side, yes A-side was good but you get tracks like “Sea of Green” (which I think is the stand out track on the record) and “Don’t get too Comfortable” which are really solid tracks.

When trying to come up with some negatives on the album I couldn’t really find anything because as a listener I listened from their new Rock ‘n Roll sound not their old Stoner/Sludge sound, so overall I think it’s pretty good.

Like I said if you guys haven’t heard of this band I highly recommend them, you can check them out out on tour and go buy some of their merch!
