SuperHeavyGoatAss - "60,000 Years"
(Arclight Records 2005, AR09)
From Aural Innovations #31 (June 2005)
SuperHeavyGoatAss is a four piece and come from Austin, Texas. They are on the excellent Arclight label (remember Book of Knots??). This is the bands first full length release and shows that they are quite serious at rocking out! All the 9 tracks are between 4 and 5 minutes so no extended jams or short punk rockers here. Straight up riff rocking! I am quite surprised at how low the vocals are mixed in on the CD, with guitars right up in your face. This is a band that is all about riffs and good ones. They are a bit blues in the ZZ TOP style but with a dose of the current crowd of stoner rock bands influence. If this sounds like your brew then I suggest you drink up on some SuperHeavyGoatAss rock and roll!
