Lonely Camel: Shit City

Napalm/Sound Pollution

Fourth album of Norwegian stoner band contains nine retro songs with a little bit of seventies AC/DC, MOTORHEAD, NWOBHM and the usual heavy grooves thrown in. The band are still founder members Tomas Brenna, guitars/vocals, Stian Helle, bass, and long time members Espen Nesset, drums, and Lukas Paulsen, guitars.

Opener “I Feel Sick” boosts an intense riff, buzzing bass and a lot of retro vibes. There is more boogie than I associate stoner bands with. “White Lines” ensues and is more traditional of the genre. The more I hear the less traditional are songs like “I Feel Sick” and “BFD” (Big Fat Dolly). To make me even more impressed and confused they go for 70-ies doom al Birmingham with “Seal the Perimeter”, and the lyrics probably needs a bit of (stoner) weed to be written at all. I think I may have the answer to the bands popularity; Say stoner, mix in some early doom and contagious Australian boogie. You may never apply to purists but the catchiness will linger...
