The story of “Sons of Lazareth” started in 2014 and the very first album of Italian stoner-formation was finally out this November.
Have you ever heard stoner blues and notes backwards then? This time you have a chance listen to intro and outro about Palm desert. What else? You wouldn’t disappoint with balanced mixing of the best parts by such bands as “Queens of stone ages”, “Them crooked vultures”, “Alice in Chains” and even “Smashing Pumpkins”. The main statement is for music and voice is just part of melody. For example, in the most tunable track “Punctualle late”. Next track “Beautiful Haze” has only deep and thoughtful instrumental music. The composite character of every song is the good tradition of desert rock. The changing channels on the radio proved this theory in “Escape to nowhere”. “Hallee road” is good for its crying guitars solo and bass breaks especially the last chords, “Escape to Nowhere” – for doom energy, “Vultures” – for dull garage vibes, “My city” – for elements of modern punk. Once again, all the styles mixed randomly, offering you imagine different puzzles like a kaleidoscope. Who said psychedelic rock?
Choosing the right genre to represent your music can be a largely overwhelming experience. “Sons of Lazareth” made a correct decision.
