World Shaker by Asomvel
|Heavy Psych Sounds|
LP version. These guys calmly walk on, bludgeon your senses with a baseball bat and then retire to the bar, leaving you with what’s left of your mind in a pool in your pants. Asomvel released their well-respected debut LP, Kamikaze, in 2009. Barely a year later, the band was shaken to it’s core when front-man, Jay-Jay Winter, was killed in a road accident. Although a devastating tragedy, co-founding guitarist, Lenny, knew that the band had to continue in tribute to the determined spirit of their founder. World Shaker is dedicated to Jay-Jay Winter. Carrying with it Jay’s attitude, grit, and determination this album is the first to feature the new line-up; Finnish drummer, Jani Pasanen, and Jay-Jay’s nephew Ralph Robinson on bass/vocals. Sticking to the traditions of the very best in rock n’ roll, while remaining utterly relevant, World Shaker is eleven heavy metal songs to live your life by; this is the album Moses would have brought down from Mount Sinai.
