Brutus: Wandering Blind

The Scandinavian five piece heavy rock act known as Brutus are back with their latest platter of '70s retro rock for Svart Records, titled Wandering Blind. If you dug their 2013 release Behind the Mountains, chances are you are going to love this latest slice of bluesy hard rock, a must hear for any fan of Witchcraft, Wolfmother, Johnny Winter, Pentagram, Grand Funk Railroad, Leaf Hound, Black Sabbath, Cactus, Horisont, Blue Cheer, and Graveyard.

This band of two parts Norwegians and three parts Swedes know their classic rock, and with Jokke Stenby's high pitched, Ozzy styled wailing soaring over beefy heavy blues/proto-doom riffing and thunderous grooves, songs like "Drowning", "Axe Man", "The Killer", and the catchy title track are can't miss tunes for any fan of vintage heavy music. Moodier cuts like "Whirlwind of Madness", "My Lonely Room", and "Blind Village" slow things down to a bluesier crawl, while "Creepin' " comes close to Led Zeppelin's manic, machismo energy. Throw in some psychedelic doom on closing number "Living in a Daze" (complete with some sizzling Tony Iommi inspired guitar solos), and you have a very well rounded album of all things early '70s heavy rock.

Recorded live in the studio at Engfelt & Forsgren Studios in Oslo by Christian Engfelt, Wandering Blind certainly has an urgent, raw, and potent feel to it, making for an even more enjoyable listen. As I mentioned above, if classic heavy rock is your thing, you'll need to hear this latest from's that simple!
