Desert Kingdom - Desert Kingdom

Review: Desert Kingdom – Desert Kingdom

This EP is bound to lift you out of your shoes and across the floor, make no mistake it is so heavy the floor is juddering in defeat! The rhythms are monumental and fuelled with balls of steel. Stoner rock is just superb listening – when you think of it, it sounds like a bunch of hippies have got together in a back room and could be mistaken for being perhaps slow in tempo, but take it from me these guys are anything but slow musically, hippies maybe but definitely have that insane streak which comes out in their music.

‘Mafiasco Opera’ is rather doom-ladened but not holding my breath and it’s a good job I didn’t as it suddenly whisks me off my feet yet again, now clinging desperately to the chair by my fingernails as the impact of an opera turns into somewhat of a metal fiasco, but a good one.  Vocally absorbing and tremendous lungs on Ritchie – it has to be said!

‘Doghouse Blues’ has more of a marching beat attached to it, and not quite as intense as the first two tracks but I still love its beat! 7 Years has an eerie, slower mesmerising rhythm incorporated into it. Perhaps the hippies are emerging, at least on this track.

‘Abstainer’ is by far one of my favourite tracks for catchiness, freaky rhythms, riffs and vocals that come together and glue all the components together to make one superb track! Fuck You starts off rather disjointed but soon comes together in an array of unity and seething vocal ferocity. Again catchy with monumental riffage that takes your breath away.‘Whisky’ is a good rock n roll track with heavy elements of stoner that makes it kick ass.

7 tracks of pummelling inspiration is definitely the way forward for Desert Kingdom they know just when to turn the heat up and burn you will. The stoner edge they possess is just so engaging and steamy, enough to seduce with vehemence. You could say the new ‘Stoner Age’ is here and for good. Feel that magnificent thump as each track (bar 7 Years, which allows a slower rhythm to be executed) snarls to within an inch of its stone-age life – it is pure ecstasy in musical form and I can’t get enough, so do me a favour

Feel that magnificent thump as each track (bar 7 Years, which allows a slower rhythm to be executed) snarls to within an inch of its stone-age life – it is pure ecstasy in musical form and I can’t get enough, so do me a favour Desert Kingdom – release a full length album next time, or else!!

Desert Kingdom Desert Kingdom is out 3rd February 2017 via Black Bow Records.
