Sonic Lord : Trawling Through Sludge

Birmingham seems never to be out of stock when it comes to bringing us good bands. Those 'Brummies' may still be the target of many Londoners' joke, they're still are the best when it comes to hammer the nail with good riffs.

So here comes Sonic Lord, a four pieces drug-machine, with the reedition of their 2004 demo on a piece of wax damn cool to look at! And when you put that piece of wax on your plate, now that's where the real trip begins.

Sonic Lord is nothing but Electric Wizard fronted by a very angry Al Cisneros. There's the same mystical vibe in the voice of Rich, but with a pissed-off edge that makes it damn aggressive. The rest of the band just knocks you down like a heat stroke, and they deliver the groove like few bands are able to.

And that's only for the great rocking opening track. Because next, Sonic Lord slow down the pace, and give you a lesson in Goatsnake good manners. And they knows their lesson well, for you could actually think that 'The Prophecy' is an outtake from 'Flower Of Disease'.

Now, after such an appetizer, there goes the only good question left : when the fuck will a full-lenght be released?
