Ah, I am back in the ’70s or something!
Canadian stoner metallers Gypsy Chief Goliath are planning to unleash their third album Citizen of Nowhere later in 2016.
The band managed to recreate that unique sound. Stoner and Blues Rock, downturned Doom, and all of that with a deliciously metallic twist. Whereas we cannot really call their tune metal, nor should we. Right? To the point that I want to break out Easy Rider. But wait – the music on that one doesn’t really fit neither. So, nope.
Now to produce this sound, the band went analog on a reel-to-reel tape at Sharktank Studios in Windsor, Ontario. You know, these ancient turning wheels with a tape running in between that youngsters of today seem to think come from the Middle Ages or some other dimension.
By doing that, however, Gypsy Chief Goliath added authenticity and dimension to the sound that is frankly astonishing.
Citizens of Nowhere features 11 tracks with airtime of just under one hour, the bonus being a Black Sabbath cover of Killing Yourself to Live of the LP Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.
A worthy successor to their 2013 release New Machines of the Night. I really liked what I heard. Have a taste right here.
