COLOUR HAZE - PERISCOPE (1999) ***BY REQUEST***
This band was requested by Gordon, and I couldn't be more delighted. Even Matias is unfamiliar with Germany's COLOUR HAZE, so this could be a chance to turn the G.O.M.E. faithful on to some serious rock. I chose to up Periscope because it's my personal favorite, but there's a lot more where this came from. COLOUR HAZE is actually one of my favorite post-KYUSS bands, and they seem to evolve with each release. On this album, Stefan Koglek borrows from Josh Homme's KYUSS book as far as guitar tones are concerned, especially his lead tones. The standout to me is absolutely "Sun", which also happens to be my favorite COLOUR HAZE tune. The groove is irresistible, but the lead melody line will have all you G.O.M.E. axe-slingers grabbing your guitars as soon as you hear it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
