It's time for some retro psychedelic stoner rock. Pontiak is a power trio from Virginia and all the members are brothers (Van, Jennings and Lain Carney). The album was recorded live without overdubs (minus vocals).
"This heavy psych stoner rock quartet from Helsinki managed to create a wonderful balance between hooks, melody and utterly heavy riffage. However, the fantastic vocals are definitely the paramount instrument to this band. The singer sounds like a mix between Mark Lanegan, Chris Cornell and Mike Patton."
"You could say that Galva is musically too similar to Down, but they aren't just paying homage to Down, they also managed to create the best brand of southern-fueled stoner metal. There are some absolutely killer grooves throughout this album."
"Her Name Was Fire is a small band with a big sound. They draw inspiration from such legends as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Keys, Kyuss and Alice In Chains to create electrifying compositions based around the blues and stoner rock."
