Sahara

Album Overview

  • Sahara from Argentina bring forth a raw as fuck stoner doom album with plenty of jamming

  • The vocals of Martin Ludi are extremely muffled and distorted, which adds to the no frills live studio sound. At first listen it felt a bit difficult to distinguish if the vocals were male or female

  • The band also show a punk side that complements the stoner doom, a nice variety of styles we don't hear too often

  • The acoustic ditty of "Blue Shift" is perfectly placed as it wipes the palette clean and gears you up for the lengthy stoner doom of "Trapped Down"

Standout Track(s)

Altar of Sacrifice

The rhythm on this track has us fired up. Sounds like chaotic thumping of The Jesus Lizard meets stoner rock.


Dangerous

A straight up badass jam. It's thick, fuzzy and the last couple minutes showcase tremendous percussion and bass with a standout psychedelic solo. Feels like a on-the-fly jam session.

Brew Pairing

Lets go with Xocoveza Tres Leches
 by Stone Brewing. This American Imperial Stout hits with notes of chocolate, vanilla and nutmeg. A great pairing with III: Hell on Earth.
