Gigantically heavy doom rock/metal for bikers & other like minded freaks. Features Dave Sherman ex-vocalist of Spirit Caravan. Earthride have one foot in the original bombast of the early-mid 70’s hard rock with a boost of modern volume & overdrive. Some of the best guitar fuzz tone I’ve ever heard.
((((1)))) Fuzzy, rockin’ St. Vitus as if sung by some behemoth biker dude.
(((2)))) Slow boogie dirge. ZZ Top as if fronted by Lemmy’s meth dealer.
(FCC “Fucked”, “fuckin’” sung 3 times)
((((3))))) Led Zep/ZZ Top mix with a lot louder amps. Simple & direct but it works as well as any of those well-worn ‘classic rock’ tunes.
(((((4))))) 4 note riff that couldn’t be any simpler. Stuck in a tar pit of rusted out customized vans and scratchy Deep Purple LPs. (FCC “fuck no!” not that audible)
(((5))) Pretty nice psychedelic, quiet guitar interlude.
((((6)))) Thunderous, battle-ready & rawkin’.
(((7))) Psychedelic & classic rock styling into burly heavy doom rawk.
(((((8)))) An iron fist of total Motorhead-bangin’ awesome-ness. (FCC “fucking” sung twice)
(((((9))))) ...and just like Lemmy this begins with an “All-right!” Steady, groovin’, low-end heavy.
((((10)))) Space-truckin’, footstompin’ ode to the glory that is southern boogie/hard rock. Awesome guitars & organ parts.
