Atomic Trip- Strike #1 (2017)

Judging by the cover, you'd probably think that this is just another Sabbath rip off, or someone worshiping at the altar of the Iommic one himself. However, there's more than meets the eye here with this explosive blend of fuzz and Instrumental Stoner Doom. These gargantuan sized riffs from Atomic Trip will hit you with hypnotic waves of radiation haze, while burying you in a mushroom cloud of fallout and smoke. Atomic Trip is so mesmerizing with their release "Strike #1" that the trance you are in will make you forget about the true horrors and evils of war, as you use the flames from the world burning around you to light up and continue your buzz. There's only two tracks on this, and both of them are very long, however it is common that when I review stuff on here, I've already listened to it about 5 or 6 times. So keep that in mind. Even though "Strike #1" is repetitive as fuck, it's not lackluster in the least bit and is enjoyable from front to back. The guitars on this are so fucking thick and just have the right amount of fuzz and distortion. Same goes for the bass as well. Overall, I fucking loved it. I didn't know what to expect when I saw the art, or at least I didn't expect it to sound like this. Cheers! -Samir
