Los Disidentes Del Sucio Motel-Arcane

Lose Disidentes Del Sucio Motel are a crushing stoner rock band from Strasbourg, France.Their new album Arcane is a powerful record that sweeps the listener off the feet with groovy riffs and an aural staying power that makes worth many a listen. One of the things that really sets this album apart is its excellent production which really inundates the listener in the huge waves of sound. I love the sheer might of the riffs on this album has, it captures me and forces me under the musics spell. Their is no escaping the almighty power of Los Disidentes Del Sucio Motel and Arcane only proves that.

It should be noted that this record relies primarily on raw groove for forward motion. While the songwriting is tight it is more often the heavy bass playing that give the songs momentum. A great example of this would be A.T.A.R.I which is mostly pushed forward by the power of the rhythm section. Overall the riffs on this record are pretty simple, usually very pentatonic. Yet they have a special vibe to them that helps to make the album more than just the latest product from a bunch of Sabbath wannabes. Instead Los Disidentes Del Sucio Motel have their own special flavor and they use the songs on Arcane to make that abundantly clear to their fans.

So, if you're looking for some fun and groovy stoner rock with riffs that should appeal to all fans of Sabbath, Zeppelin and even Sleep then Los Disdentes Del Sucio Motel are the group for you. I love their solid understanding of what makes rock and roll so special and their great riff writing skills. With a sound that is all their own yet also somehow familiar Arcane is both comfortable and fresh. It allows you to relax in ideas you've heard before, but with a new spin on them, keeping things interesting and fun. So for all you riff lords and groove n rollers Arcane is the album for you!
