That New Band Smell - Crow Black Chicken

Post categories:

ATL | 22:15 UK time, Monday, 26 March 2012

 

 

The sun is out and that means it's the perfect time for some chilled out rock to pass those sunny days. Carrie Davenport brings you a mix of three bands new to ATL to check out featuring a perfect mix of instrumental doom, stoner rock and bluesy tunes so there's something in there for everyone!

 

************************************************************************************************************

Wizards of Firetop Mountain

As their online biography claims "With floods of fire raging from the rocky peaks, five wizards descended their sanctuary arriving many centuries later at the Foothills of the ancient Gaelic stronghold Dubh Linn to unleash a furious wrath of wizardry and riffs upon the scorched sunken soil." That pretty much says everything it needs to bar the fact once they descended from the mountains they made some really great tunes. They released their debut demos last summer and are definitely worth a listen if you enjoy the sounds of Valient Thorr or Cathedral then you'll love these guys!

 

Black Dunes

The north coast is well renowned for producing high quality riffage heavier than the Giant's Causeway itself and Black Dunes are no exception to this rule. Very new to the scene their sludgy instrumental doom laden tunes, reminiscent of local favourites Slomatics, are a slice of absolutely perfect stoner rock

 

Crow Black Chicken

Crow Black Chicken hail from Cork and Tipperary. Their blues infused sound is a perfect Frankenstein-esque mix of all the musical stylings they bring together in a cocktail of jazz, blues, punk and good old fashioned rock n roll - whats not to like about that! Having played 100 gigs across Ireland last year and even gracing the BBC introducing stage at Glastonbury  these guys aren't afraid of a bit of hard graft and you can definietly hear it in their music.
