Zonderhoof - EP
Here�s a strange one. Zonderhoof is an instrumental band, that operate in the regions of stonerrock and psychedelic doom, stuff I�m very much into. After releasing a highly acclaimed demo last year, they now bring us an EP with four tracks. Let�s rock!
The main comparisons I feel like making are towards Pelican (for the fact that it�s instrumental heavy rock) and High On Fire, for it�s heaviness. The comparison to the latter is a big compliment I�d say, and it�s mainly inspired by the sound of the drums, which is huge. But the songwriting is also more in the style of Pelican, it involves a lot of twists and turns that you don�t see coming that easily. I like!
The absence of vocals is not a real problem, but I think that if they would try it, it might take the band to the next level. I mean High On Fire�s Matt Pike only started singing because nobody else wanted to or could do it. And that�s worked out perfectly. This way it�s pretty cool too, but it just might be that extra kick in the head. I�m not saying this album isn�t good the way it is though, don�t get me wrong. Because any fan of instrumental heavy stoner rock and such can buy this one blindly. Trust me.
I�d like to give extra point for the cool artwork they provided with the record, it�s really original and very funny I think. The extra points are also inspired by their thank you list, which is as follows: �hebt u mijn ezel gezien ik heb hem�. Any Dutch person should be laughing right now. Cool shit, this Zonderhoof.
