ASTROSONIQ - SOUND GRENADE (2002)

Before I ever even mention the greatness that is ASTROSONIQ, I need to thank Mighty Matias for kicking ass in my absence. He's brought a lot of great rock to the G.O.M.E. Faithful, and he will no doubt continue to do so. Thanks also to all you regs, and newbies as well, for being active in the comments and letting us know you appreciate what we're doing. Someday I'll get sentimental and over-appreciative and post a big fuckin' suckfest for all you guys helping with the blog, whether it's sharing links or information. But for now, I want to talk about ASTROSONIQ.

This is one of my favorite post-KYUSS bands. I'd put the "50N1C" up there with SASQUATCH and FIREBALL MINISTRY. The shit ROCKS - one listen to the title track and "Astronomicon" will prove that - but they're also a lot more diverse than most bands. ASTROSONIQ can almost "out-Kyuss" KYUSS on one track, then cover a GRAHAM CENTRAL STATION or FUNKADELIC jam on the next. To my ears, ASTROSONIQ (from the Netherlands) incorporates everything great about rock & roll into their own unique brand of music. A lot of you are thinking "Well, OK, sounds like FATSO JETSON to me", and I agree. The difference is in the songwriting. FATSO is a tried and true classic, but if they spent more time experimenting with melodies and structure, they'd probably sound a lot like ASTRO. To the uninitiated: G.O.M.E. proudly presents to you the bastard grandchild of FUNKADELIC, HAWKWIND, SABBATH, and KYUSS (of course, you also need to grab Son of A.P. Lady). Make sure you check out "Astronomicon" and "So Be It". You'll be a better person for digging them. Like the marquee reads, folks, we care about your future.

1. Secret Passage

Scooby, my friend, the other day I went to see Natas on Niceto, great Show, as for the blog, it belongs to Big Jack, He is in the U.S., from here (ARG) I'm just giving him a hand and throwing him some bones.
