Skate rock doesn’t sound like the world’s most exhilarating thing but then I remember the old Christian Slater movie Skate To Die and it all becomes much more fun. So from having no greater hopes for this album to having great hopes courtesy of Mr Slater in just a whiff of a second. Cheers mate. This album starts with a long and winding intro that builds into a song. Immediately I start thinking Iron Butterfly and the bands around the time of Black Sabbath’s debut album in 1970. This is pretty psychedelic and heavy in a cool doomy way. If this is skate rock then I’d like to see the skaters doing their tricks in slomo. This I like a hell of a lot. Some really cool stoner rock with a very 70s vibe. Anders Ekdahl
