Hermano - ...Into The Exam Room
From the ashes of Kyuss, the gods of stoner rock, two great bands emerged; the one we all know, the one founded by bass player Nick Olivieri and guitar player Joshua Homme, is Queens Of The Stone Age. The one not everybody knows is the one founded by singer John Garcia. 

Where QOTSA lost a lot of Rock when Nick Olivieri left, Hermano keeps on rocking stoner style! For the ones that haven’t heard of Hermano yet, go get your ass some Kyuss records and Hermano’s first two albums!! Then you can see that on …Into The Exam Room, Hermano continues in the straight line they started drawing back in 1998. Good solid grungy guitars, powering drums and a steady bassline. Do I really need to write about John Garcia’s vocals? They were trendsetting for stonerrock, just as all the rest of Kyuss was. 

…Into The Exam Room starts of with the nice rock song “Kentucky” and then keeps on rocking! The second song on the album, “ Exam Room”, is a powerfully driven song and so is “Adoption Boy”. In between all this rock&roll violence, Hermano also takes the foot of the gass with bluesy songs such as “At The Bar” and on my personal favorite on this album; the strange, stoner-like song “Bona-fide”. 

It’s a sort of mix of Kyuss with Velvet Revolver. The only criticism is that the first two albums and most of the Kyuss stuff was just a little bit better. However, it is definitely NOT a shame to deliver an album like this!
