Karma to Burn: Mountain Czar

Veteran act Karma to Burn are trying to get away from the 'stoner rock' tag that's followed them for years, not because they don't employ crushing doom-meets-Southern rock styled guitar riffs like most acts associated with that classification, but because, well, they don't smoke weed. Instead, they are happier being labeled 'mountain rock', which is ok by me as it still describes the massiveness of their sound. Mountain Czar is a little stopgap EP from the band to hold over their growing legion of fans, and it's comprised of 5 tracks featuring all that they do best. With four tunes relating to "Sixty", the guys lumber through some heavy groove laden instrumental workouts, each one with some serious bottom end and riffs that just never end. "Uccidendo Un Sogno" has an almost swampy ZZ Top feel to it, though the high pitched vocals sound a tad out of place, making it easily the weakest cut here, but the more than solid instrumentals alone are worth the price of admission. Stoner rock or mountain rock, it's all pretty damn good in the end.
