ROACHPOWDER - VIEJO DIABLO (1998)

Photobucket
This one comes to you, the G.O.M.E. Faithful, by way of our main man The Good Captain, of Sonic Daydream and Inner-Head Flight Royale fame - and what a killer contribution it is! How did I miss out on these guys? This is one incredible slab of rock, Gomies. Like I told the Cap'n, this record reminds me of both early MONSTER MAGNET and PANTERA's more groove-based music. I don't want to gush too much, and maybe it's just that I needed to discover something new after a tumultuous couple of weeks, but I find this to be a damn near flawless rock record. Over the course of Viejo Diablo, you'll hear traces of the aforementioned MONSTER MAGNET and PANTERA, as well as KYUSS, HAWKWIND, SABBATH, and even the STONES and STOOGES! Brilliant rock, excellent guitar work, heavy on the smack and trippies, tailor-suited for G.O.M.E., compliments of The Good Cap'n. Dig it.

These guys were swedish (I think) with a Canadian lead singer. Would be interested to hear the other recordings since I have had this cd for years but was scared off of reviews of the following cd sounding like Monster Magnet rip offs.

These guys are awesome, back then I bought both of their albums after listening to a preview of "New Orleans". They got me in all this Stoner stuff.

Listen to Skintrade, their former Band and maybe Roadsaw..

But there is nothing as heavy and as psychadelic as Roachpowder!
