Hessian - raspy soulful vocals shouting over thundering distorted bass and grooving drums
This is very similar to the melvins or high on fire, but with more of an american soul (not that melvins and high on fire aren't pure american hessians). great song writing with catchy vocals. the thrashing heavily distorted bass drones at about 200 beats a minute, very very fast. after buying the new sepultura, and mastodon, i knew i was looking for something with vocals more blues-influenced. and then i remembered how impressed i was with big business, bought head for the shallow, and man this album rocks! i've been listening to it over and over for weeks. with just two members, i'd say they're twice as potent as all 4 melvins. i first heard big business when they played live with high on fire. it was killer! they were terrific! a two-piece, bass and drums, with the bass-player thundering passionate and soulful vocals. this is a very live band. this is as close to motorhead as you'll get without lemmy. cover artwork is lame lame lame, but you'll want the lyrics, because the lyrics are a little bit unintelligible with all the tonal range the vocalist covers...his vocals are a whole metal opera by themselves.
