Attalla- Glacial Rule (2017)

Well this was fucking good! I've been getting a little worn out from the stoner rock I gravitate towards on the internet. More often then not I feel like bands are just playing the same recycled riffs with a little psych and boogie to it, and shit has been getting old to me. So it's really great when something like this comes along to restore your faith in the genre! These steller riffians from the artic tundra known as the American Midwest play heavy stoner doom rock that would please the almighty Iommic Lord himself. Attalla might be sabbath worshipers, but they definitely carve out their own space in the crowded scene. Pounding it out over 6 tracks with the might of Thor's hammer, their mix of bluesy doom ladened riffs, with clean vocals chanting about fantastical tales, and some of the best leads I've heard in a while, make this worthy of venturing out into the frigid cold to see what the fuss is about. Cheers! -Samir
