General Information.

In a dark corner of an old dusty metal shop, alongside the menacing blasts of industrial age freight trains, that’s where the sound was forged…

Where the rusted steel of a bygone era meets the ancient spirits of legendary mountains, that’s where the reckoning came to be…

As a whole greater than it’s parts, a beacon arose from the valley below and brought forth a new sense of old ways and a recalibration of doctrine.

In other words…

Geezer lay down thick heavy grooves rooted in the tradition of pre-war slide guitar blues, while simultaneously breaking boundaries through sonic experimentation and improvisation.

2015 has been a year of milestones for Geezer. It all started with the worldwide release the highly acclaimed EP “Gage” on Ripple Music, followed by the release of “The Second Coming Of Heavy: Chapter One”. The first in a series of splits from Ripple Music, it combined Geezer’s heavy blues with the massive riffs of Borracho to create an instant classic.

Geezer also spent much of the year playing live, including a tour of the the American rust belt with Bison Machine. To date, Geezer has shared the stage with bands like Gozu, Wo Fat, Mos Generator, The Golden Grass, The Midnight Ghost Train and High On Fire, among others.

New material is in the works and preparations are being made for a new full length album to be released in Spring of 2016. Always moving forward and venturing into new sonic landscapes, 2016 promises to be the year that Geezer spreads their brand of heavy-psych-blues across the seas to an ever-expanding international audience.

The reviews tell the tale…

“Five tracks of heavy and hazy blues rock drift across desert sands, echoing through moonlit canyons under starry skies, a moreish Peyote for altering the minds of easy riders everywhere.”: Metal Hammer, April 2015

“Geezer’s EP is a work of genius. Stoner Rock of the highest order… Brilliant and highly recommended.” The Sludgelord

“The bass is a leviathan of low end rumble, the blues guitar forging molten riffs of iron and steel, and the drum work massive and purposeful.”: Heavy Planet

“It’s a powerful and soothing expression of nearly a hundred years of music placed upon an altar that a thousand giants built and cherished, and this one may stand the test of time in ways that will continue to define the genre for a long time to come. Yes, it’s that damn good.”: Russell Mullen @ The Ripple Effect

Always Heavy… Totally Righteous… Geezer

General Information.

“Taste it and you won’t be sorry.” (Metal Hammer)

¡PENDEJO! is a four-piece heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins with a history in Latin America. Digging into their latino roots, El Pastuso and Jaap ‘Monchito’ Melman started blending heavy riffage, pounding drums, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish about the weirdest stories in life, and to top it all off, a screaming trumpet.

“Check the irony that one of the best Latin American bands I’ve heard isn’t Latin American.” (Vagabundo Espiritual)

‘Cantos a la Vida’, the band’s first full length album, was released in 2010 and got stunningly positive reviews, especially in Spanish speaking countries. Their music has been described as heavy, addictive, rough and grooving, or as a Spanish critic so eloquently put it: “Heavy rock in Spanish with balls the size of Danny de Vito”.

“You really won’t believe your ears.” (Stan Novak, Aardschok)

During the following years, ¡Pendejo! played mostly in the underground scene throughout Europe and Latin America, putting on a show for anyone who is not afraid to be grabbed by the cojones and to be thrown into a spicy puddle of chile con carne.

“Smoke, alcohol, humor, sex and ah!, Rock n Roll!” (Max Metal)

The band recorded its second album ‘Atacames’ (2014) with producer Pieter Kloos in The Void Studio in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. This resulted in a daring album containing 10 songs ranging from heavy to lighthearted, and from melodramatic to outright aggressive.

“Gewinnt jeden Schwanzvergleich.” (Legacy)

In 2014-2016 the band did several tours in Europe. In October 2016 ¡PENDEJO! toured in South America again, including Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. Currently the band is working on a new album, to be recorded in August this year.
“¡Pendejo! les chingará la madre.” (Renacer Electrico)

General Information.

If John Lee Hooker, Kyuss and Janis Joplin had a baby, can you imagine how ugly that little alcoholic infant would be? Fortunately, South Australian quartet Kitchen Witch can hold their liquor long enough to write some booty shakin’ bluesy stoner grooves.

In 2013, Kitchen Witch formed and hit the live circuit hard. They recorded the double A-side single “Shock/Beer Swilling Baby”.

2015 saw the release of the “Trouble” EP. The 5-track blues rock release has attracted over 10,000 plays on YouTube and was featured on the attached CD of globally distributed Classic Rock UK Magazine.

In 2016, Kitchen Witch recorded the darker “Back To The Mud” EP at Studio Finetime (Hydromedusa, Woe), showing a heavier side to the group that is evident in their live shows.

Recently, Kitchen Witch have signed with Kozmik Artifactz for an exclusive vinyl release featuring selected tracks taken from both EPs.

Kitchen Witch continue to go from strength to strength with a powerful twist of blues, gospel, roots, country, punk, 70’s rock and stoner doom.

“A very unique alt. blues sound, incredibly fun.” – themusic.com.au

“Zepplin, Kyuss, The Kills, Deap Vally all huffing the one monster spliff, riffing you a sweet stoner blues lullaby.” – Spoz’s Rant

General Information.

“Mountain Dust’s set was a blast of cymbal crashing, headbanging hard rock laced with doom metal and a sensible dosage of psychedelic pretensions. The songs weren’t excuses for aimless guitar wankfests, but slithering heavy jams (the bass player laid hypnotic grooves on his Rickenbacker) that turned in on themselves like a snake eating its tail. Organ à la Deep Purple gave the music a gothic nuance, but the big surprise was lap steel guitar fed through an effects rack.

The band reinvented their blues-metal sound — a genre now as outmoded as bell-bottoms and songs about scoring with underage groupies — with well-crafted riffs that make you forget it’s all the same 4/4 rhythm you’ve heard a million times. They had masterful dynamics and pauses: the music breathed, but it breathed like Godzilla. For four thrashers who look like head shop regulars, Mountain Dust didn’t play a bum note all night.

I can say it was all appropriately face-melting, the best show I’ve seen in Montreal since the Prince afterparty at Muzique (an admittedly high bar). Imagine Zeppelin on their first American tour, pre-superstardom: that’s the impression Mountain Dust left in their wake.” – Cult MTL

General Information.

Borracho is a three piece heavy rock band from Washington, DC. In the five years since releasing their 2011 debut Splitting Sky, they have become a staple of the Mid-Atlantic — and US — stoner rock scene. 2013’s follow up Oculus highlighted a band in metamorphosis, moving the band forward sonically with a leaner lineup, but continuing their emphasis on song construction and memorable melodies. With a substantial offering in Ripple Music’s 2015 inaugural Second Coming of Heavy, Chapter One, the band showed their continued commitment to the almighty riff, and plenty of variety in their approach, even within only 22 minutes of scathing rock.

Along with their two LPs, Borracho has dropped a half-dozen limited edition vinyl singles and split 7”s to satisfy fans and collectors around the globe. The band has worked with labels from the US, Spain, Germany, and Japan to get their music to the masses, and has teamed up with similar acts Cortez, Geezer, and Eggnogg — even their own former band Adam West — on split releases. The past two years has pushed Borracho to both Europe and the west coast of the United States to preach their gospel of low and heavy grooves.

With the 2016 release of their third LP Atacama, the band is primed for a larger audience, with a totally organic and diverse collection of heavy anthems to get people up onto their feet and raising their fists in a glorious Hallelujah.

General Information.

The first rehersals were around 2008. Everything was still very embryonic. The band consisted of Space Ghost (guitar), King Lizzard (vocals), Philip (drums) and Adrian (bass).

The first show took place around 2010, already with Asteroid Mammoth in place of Felipe and Bong Monkey in place of Adriano, plus the addition of a second guitarist Gila Monster.

In 2012 came out the EP ‘Snake arms woman’ with 3 songs. Since then the band started playing in bars and concert halls, but also in neighboring towns, also participating in some festivals. In 2014, the band received the invitation from Rio de Janeiro producer of Abraxas Felipe Toscano to record full album in the studio Superfuzz with the producer Gabriel Zander, who worked with Mars Red Sky among others. In the same year, the band made concerts in RJ / SP and the festival that takes place in Belo Horizonte, the ‘Exhale the sound’. The guitarist Space Ghost got replaced by Psychodelic Monk.

In 2015 the band launched the single “Jupiter cosmonaut”, a 15-minute song and soon after released their full length “Thrones in the sky” with 5 songs in digital format. Immediately they were invited to join the cast of Abraxas Fest and played again shows in RJ and SP, together with Kadavar, plus the Monster Coyote and Munoz.

General Information.

BUZZARD is a down-tuned juggernaut of heavy riffs, groovy beats and a melodic low end. Fans of such bands as: Down, Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Queens of the Stone Age, Robin Trower, Mountain, Pentagram, Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan, and Black Sabbath will find homage in Minnesota’s BUZZARD!

Formed in 2009, singer and guitar player Minnesota Pete Campbell (The Mighty Nimbus, Pentagram, Place of Skulls, Victor Griffin’s Ingraved, and Sixty Watt Shaman) and bass player Gene Starr (The New Suns) put this monster on hiatus until the fall of 2012 when Big Andy Campbell (The Mighty Nimbus) added his take on drum duties. Since then, the power trio has found their path and has been spreading the word playing shows & writing songs for their debut album, scheduled for release in early 2015. Leaving no stone unturned, BUZZARD will carry the torch of rock and roll and reintroduce metal fans to the power of the riff!

General Information.

Mississippi Bones formed in the flat lands of Hardin County, Ohio in 2010 as a 2 man studio project, thanks to some free studio time, with no other motives than to lay down some rock and no intentions of a future. In the last 4 years the rock has not stopped. They have moved from a 2 to a 6 man (5 men 1 lady) band, and have went from peddling discs in their small town to selling albums across the globe, but the goal remains the same, laying down some rock.

 

Inspired by all things that rock, bad sci-fi movies, beer, comics, good sci-fi movies, and bad jokes, they come bearing loads of riffs, tasty grooves, run on sentences, and a serious irreverence. Over the years they have continued to expand the borders of their sound but one thing always holds true, whether it be fast and furious, tinged with metal, dirty, swampy, bluesy, fuzzed out, or low and slow just like a good barbeque, it will always be about laying down some sweet rock.

 

They like to laugh. They like to make music. They like watching horror movies on the garage door in the drive way while eating pulled pork sandwiches. People know them as Mississippi Bones. You can become one of those people. I’m sure they’d appreciate it.

Bison Machine Cover300

General Information.

Conceived in a single family wigwam on the far eastern reaches of the city of Detroit, and thrust from the birth canal in a dusty basement in Hamtramck, Bison Machine giveth and Bison Machine taketh away.

No Prisoners; no one survives. Liveshows are things of wonderment. Volume, blues, saturation. That is the prevailing ethos. Hamtramck’s own rock spectacle, heavy and melodic. Things are broken, blood is spilled, clothes and loin cloths are rent from bodies, antler and hides are prevalent.

Picture a small child raised on the delta blues since birth, then force fed Zeppelin and Sabbath til they could no longer move, then beaten and whipped with Kyuss, Pentagram, Earthless, Dead Meadow, Willie and Waylon, Queens of the stone age and Thin Lizzy, until one day, the child rears its ugly bruised and mishapen head perched upon its grizzled, muscular, agromegalic body rippling with virility, shrugs of it’s chains, and runs down Jos Campau naked, riding a sabertooth tiger.

This is the music that poor soul would be singing.

Bison Machine.

…and no one survives.
