One Inch Giant (Swe) - 2011 - Malva
Hail Sweden! Here comes One Inch Giant. Powerful, strong stonerrock filled with good classic riffs. I've listened to this album for one breath. Just one melodic ballad and the rest is a groovy massacre. The British band Grifter says - "Simplicity of the riff is key". And I think this is the answer to the tons of hard questions ))). Name of the band for sure comes from one Kyuss song (guess how it's called?))) And my favourite song on this album "Feed the Fire" starts from the Blind Dog's riff...aarrghh sounds awesome. I need to buy a motorcycle !
"Echoes in the night" and "Treasures that betray" rock my lazy bottom since last weekend.
Recommended to old riff-rock lovers (Blind Dog, The Mashroom River Band, Zebulon, Kyuss)
few words from the band :
"We're One Inch Giant, a band from Gothenburg, Sweden, finding inspirations in such fine acts as Black Sabbath, Alice In Chains, Kyuss, Mastodon and others."
