SMOKES OF KRAKATAU – SMOKES OF KRAKATAU
The Witches have been freed, they’re dancing, and hopefully you with them… Next up… Out since August, but never, for some weird and probably insane reason made it onto the Charts… We’re referring to the Polish three called SMOKES OF KRAKATAU and their full-sized, self-titled debut. It’s doom, doom of the psychedelic stoner and groovy kind… Are you ready to blow?
Or as Frazer Jones stated: “Deliciously downtuned grooviness that ticks more boxes than it leaves blank.”
Tom Hanno wrote a full review on his own Tom Reviews… Excerpt: “… Closing the album is the eleven minute masterpiece, “Kombajn Bizon”, a track that starts off mellow, incorporating a beautifully done slide guitar. That slide sounds so good, one of the record’s many highlights, and helps to make this my personal favorite song on the album. Add in an extremely tasteful guitar solo, a thing of utter beauty that portrays emotion, skill, and writing excellence, and you have the makings of incredible music. The riffs get slightly heavier towards the latter third of the song as well, and they do not disappoint! …”
