Floridian Stoner rock explosion Hell And Hollar released 442 on 13 July 2018. I take a look into the world of Hell and Hollar below.
‘Low And Slow’ opens the proceedings with its groove-based riff that has a bluesy undertone. The production is clean without being overly polished. Vocals remind me of Frank Zappa with a similar sense of humour with the lyrics, “You will be just shittin’ the rest of your days”. There is a great solid rhythm section laying down the groove-based foundations.
‘Double Wide’ opens with an interesting phasing effect that is accompanied by thunderous locking rhythm section, building the main riff. An instant head-banging vibe with some classic sounds.
‘Desert Dust’ has an undeniable QOTSA influenced sound, groove and feel. A slightly busier track in comparison with the others. One for the desert rock fans for sure.
A solid EP that is fresh sounding with some old skool flavours here and there with some interesting lyric choices.
