Tsar Bomba

Tsar Bomba is an extremely heavy Stoner/Slduge band from Paris and one of the acts I will be seeing Sunday night. The guitar work is extraordinarily heavy. To the point that it makes my ears almost whine. Yet something keeps me listening. Maybe it's the straightforward blues quality of the riffs, or maybe just the sheer brutality. But something about the guitar work on this album is distinctly listenable. The bass work is heavy and bluesy. I particularly like the heavy line on the track on Silent Queen where we see the bassist at his riffing peak. The drums are great and very swingy. They remind me quite a bit of the classic drum lines of Bill Ward in days of yore. Finally we have the vocals, low and mighty they are typical of the genre. They have a power that probes that this band can go far, and I can't wait to see them live! In conclusion, Tsar Bomba is an awesome bluesy stoner band and I'm sure you'll love them!
