Blood Red Sky: A Cross to Bear & Hell to Harness

Another day, another release from those industrious people at Finnish label Inverse Records. This time it is from Blood Red Sky who are described as sailing in, "the waters of metallic stoner rock and its music can be described as a combination of Kyuss, Danzig and Motörhead." This, for once is fairly accurate. I can hear Orange Goblin style riffs within the grooves of "Locked 'n' Loaded" with its chants of, "Blood…Red…Sky." Throw in a little Mastodon, a pinch of Five Horse Johnson (because of the hint of Southern Rock in the vocals) with a little sludge and even a decent instrumental in "Skulltower" and you have a release which is sure to please those who like their rock of the stoner variety.
