Smoke Mountain- S/T (2017)

Holy smoke! If you like fuzzed out stoner/doom you NEED to listen to this! Smoke Mountain is a new band out of Tallahassee, FL that just put out their first self-titled EP and it is blowing me away. This release is three tracks of massive riffs, wicked female vocals, and an overwhelming sinister groove. From the moment the guitar kicks in on the first track all thick with distortion and playing that electric saunter, you know this is going to be something special. At the same time the drums come through loud and steady, heavy on the cymbals, creating a perfect pair. Then Once the vocals start, you're completely mesmerized by the trio. The voice cries out "demoooooon" through the chorus and it leaves you absolutely enamored with the dark allure of the music. When you couple all of that with the healthy doss of feedback and reverb you'll be hearing throughout, you'll get an incredible sound that will completely possess you. The whole thing is rich with a witchy motif which only helps it to capture a kind of occult magic that powers the EP. This one comes highly recommended, and I have to imagine that is the band keeps going, they're going to get big. I don't know what they're planning next, but I can't wait for it. -Brandon
